For the very first Friday of June…
Side Note: Join me on Facebook Live today at 2pm EST. We are making THESE ice cream sandwich bars!
June through August around here means ice cream for dessert all the time. OK well, at least a lot of the time. Over the years of writing the blog I’ve grown to love fruity summer desserts…although I typically serve them for brunch….hmmmm?
Point is, ice cream is a regular around here during the summer, and I’m pretty excited about today’s ice cream sandwich recipe. Can you guys believe that in four 1/2 + years of developing recipes I have yet to create an ice cream sandwich bar? I just realized this now. Craziness.
Well, I’m so glad I finally changed all that, because these ice cream sammies are like no other.
Say hello to the tiramisu brownie ice cream sandwich. It’s homemade no-churn mascarpone ice cream, sandwiched between two fudge brownies, spiked with a little coffee, and frosted with Nutella.
I mean…SO GOOD.
Well you might think these are kind of hard and time-consuming, but they are so incredibly easy. I’m talking twenty to thirty minutes top of prep time, and the rest is all freezer work. So fast, so simple, and kind of dangerous…because they are THAT easy!
If you think I’m messing with you, let me explain.
Start with my favorite homemade FUDGE brownies. If there was ever a perfect ice cream sandwich base, it has got to be a fudge brownie. I mean, what’s not amazing about a homemade brownie and ice cream together? It’s the ideal combo. The brownie is thinly spread between two 8×8 inch square pans. You want thinner brownies so that your sandwich is actually bite-able.
Once your brownies are cooled, spread them with a rather generous layer of Nutella. Going to be honest here, my layer was clearly way too thin, as you can barely even see it in the photos. Enter giant sad face emoji.
OK. No churn ice cream! I am a huge fan of no-churn ice cream, so to keep this recipe simple and quick, I used my favorite no-churn mascarpone ice cream. Plus, tiramisu is all about the coffee and the mascarpone, so this ice cream just had to happen.
Sandwich everything together, and then…DONE.
Could not be easier. The hardest part is waiting for these to freeze…meaning you need to get up right now and starting baking…because it’s Friday and your Friday needs an ice cream sandwich. Trust me.
Speaking of Friday, happy weekend! Man, this week went by so crazy fast. Having a holiday on Monday totally threw me off. I was a day behind all week and it was just a tinsy bit crazy. But still a great week, filled with so many things. You know what made this week all that much better? You guys are going to cringe when I say this, but the weather!
I hate, hate, hate to talk about the weather again, but I swear, having warmer, longer, and sunnier days just lifted my spirits. I feel like I already said this sometime earlier this week, but the sunshine just makes me a happier, nicer, and more upbeat person. Also, green trees, flowers, and my small farm animals are pretty much everything to me right now. I’m even digging the rooster’s crow, as it’s just kind of peaceful amidst the warmer air. I know, I know, what? But if you were here, you’d get it!
I truly can’t get over how pretty it here. Especially around six or seven at night when the sun is setting through the trees. It’s my very favorite time of day. <–which you already know if you follow me on Instagram, as I am constantly posting stories of the sunsets.
Bonus…these late night sunsets are the perfect time to be eating ice cream sammies!

The most perfect bite. Again, SO GOOD.
Hi, did anyone else have trouble with the ice cream not setting up? Just wondering if whipping the heavy cream before adding it to the cream cheese mixture wouldn’t help.
So sorry you had issues here. Was there anything you adjusted in the recipe? Please let me know how I can help! xTieghan
My boyfriend loves these.
Thank you so much Devorah! xTieghan
Love these! Really delicious. Can you recommend the best way to cut these?
I like to use a large chef knife, run it under hot water and then slice. It works really well. 🙂
I am a brand manager for Tiramisu liqueur. How would you suggest working this ingredient into the recipe because these look amazing–and I’d love to use my brand!
Hey Meredith, I am not familiar with your product, so I cant say for sure.
Hi Teighan! Just made these a SECOND time!! They are so easy and so yummy! Thanks for all the great ideas!
Hey Lisa! So glad you loved these ? I hope you like some other recipes on the blog as well! Thanks!
I made this last weekend. Wow!! This was literally one of my favorite things I’ve ever tasted. It was so good, I literally think I could have eaten the whole thing. (Your avocado brownies are a close second, and my go-to dessert). Unfortunately/fortunately, I had to stop after my second piece (yes, I had seconds…) because I stopped eating sugar a couple months ago, so my stomach got mad at me for all the sugar. Lol. But wow…so good.
HI!! SO SO happy you like both my desserts you seriously picked two of my favorites! Hope your stomach didn’t hurt to bad!!
Just made for our Fathers Day dinner. Thanks.
Hope its amazing! Happy fathers day!
Ooh I can’t wait to try these! But I hope I’ll be able to get the other brownie on top of the ice cream layer without breaking it. ^ ^;
Haha! Could be very tough to get! Thanks Katie, hope you love the cake!
