Brought this out to oohs and ahhs - it really does look like a giant icecream sandwich. I changed the recipe a bit to add peanut butter flavour: I spread a thin layer of pb on the bottom brownie before adding the icecream, and instead of toffee bits, I crushed up a couple of Crispy Crunch chocolate bars. It was definitely tasty, but I had a problem with the brownie part being too hard when frozen compared to the icecream - made it so hard to cut, and hard to eat. I think next time I will freeze the icecream in the cake pan so it will be the right shape, keep the brownie part in the refrigerator and assemble it just before serving. Thanks for a fun recipe! p.s. Sauce was delicious.
