 Double Chocolate Brownie Bites with Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Happy 4th of July!

This morning, I’m heading off to a 7 mile race in preparation for all the eating I’m going to be doing today! We are having a party and everyone is bringing something delicious! Of course I will happily try everything!

What did I make for our get together? Well besides a few of the things listed in my last post, I made these little babies! Aren’t they darling? I tell ya, I can’t get enough of the cutesy “bite size” “mini” or “individual” food items.

For these, I just made a super chocolaty brownie batter that wasn’t too terribly sweet, turned them into little mini brownie bites {thank you mini muffin tins} and then topped the warm little guys with some homemade vanilla ice cream. {I tell ya, this ice cream maker will be the death of me!}

These basically are incredible! I mean, who doesn’t like brownies, fresh and warm out of the oven with vanilla ice cream? It’s pretty much one of my favorite combinations….ever. The cold and sweet ice cream with the warm fudgy brownie pretty much is the reason I run….so I can eat guilt free! Anyone else do that?

So, hopefully you all will have a happy and safe celebration and we will see you with a new {maybe healthier} recipe on Wednesday! Enjoy, friends! 🙂
