Brownie Recipe w/ice cream in the batter

In search of a yummy brownie that I tried over the holidays that had ice cream as an ingredient in the batter. Does anyone know of such a recipe?

Happy New Year!!!

    Where a brownie recipe calls for heavy cream, you can substitute a high quality ice cream for that ingredient.
    This one should work

      Yes. Go to Ben and Jerry's website for the recipe.

        I went to the Ben & Jerry's site and couldn't find anything.

        I used melted sherbet in a mousse pie recipe; didn't cut back on the eggs or sugar but I created the recipe and allowed for the sugar in the sherbet; it was wonderful... you can use ice cream in the place of whatever liquid in just about any recipe

          i've never heard of this. however, people use everything from sour cream to cream cheese to mayonnaise in their brownies, so why not ice cream? :) assuming it's a custard base, you'd want to cut back on the eggs, butter and sugar in the recipe.
