I know. You’re asking yourself – what stale brownies? What kind of person keeps brownies around long enough to let them go stale? Well, every once in a while, it happens. I’ll confess. My last batch of Food Babe’s Almond Butter Brownies were pushed aside for coconut bark and other goodies and somehow didn’t get eaten in time.
So what to do with the 4 or 5 leftover brownies? I’m definitely not tossing them out; that’s for sure. I’ve read you can microwave them with a little water to bring them back to life, but I wanted something even tastier.
And then it occurred to me: ice cream. Ice cream solves all the world’s problems. So I picked up a pint of coconut ice cream at the store this weekend. I set it out on the counter to let it soften for about 30 minutes.
Then I scooped out all of the ice cream and added it to the bowl with the brownie pieces.
Mix it all up with a spoon to make sure those brownie pieces are in every bite of ice cream.
This would also work with other stale treats – chocolate chip cookies, blondies. Just chop, mix, freeze and enjoy!
