1 Picky Eater + 1 Picky Eater = 1 Awesome Dessert

My daughter informed me last weekend that it was National Ice Cream Cream and she decided we needed to make some coffee flavored ice cream.  I’m a bit partial to mochas so I decided to throw in some chocolate chips for flavor and texture.  However, my son doesn’t like anything coffee flavored.  I couldn’t very well do a dessert for only one child.  That’s when this idea came to me – brownie a la mode.  Seemed like a perfect solution: my son eats the brownie and my daughter enjoys the ice cream.  I wasn’t neglecting either one of my kids.  The result was beyond all expectations!  It was a sensational flavor and texture combination.


This ice cream is ridiculously easy to make.  It doesn’t require an ice cream maker.  And, it tastes amazing.  I simply added 7 Tbls of vienna coffee power and 1 cup of chocolate chips (chopped to 1/4 original size)

Here’s a video on how to make it …
