To create the perfect end to our bank holiday barbecue using ingredients bought from Morrisons for the Morrisons Mum campaign I made these gorgeous strawberry brownie ice cream sundaes. I’ve seen brownies used in ice cream sundaes in restaurants so I thought why not try it myself. The sundaes are so indulgent it’s true, but hey it was the bank holiday and a very special treat. To make the sundaes I’ve used fresh chopped British strawberries, chocolate brownie bites from the Morrisons bakery, Carte D’Or vanilla ice cream and a homemade sweet strawberry sauce. My children loved the sundaes but that’s no real surprise as I secretly knew they would.
Ingredients (Serves 4)
900ml Carte D’Or vanilla ice cream (I only used 3/4)
2 x 227g pack of strawberries (chopped into quarters)
1/2 box of Morrisons brownie bites
1 tablespoon icing sugar*
1. To make the strawberry sauce, put the chopped strawberries from one pack in a mini chopper with the icing sugar. Whizz until puréed.
2. Place a sieve over a jug and then pour the strawberry sauce through the sieve. Press through until only the strawberry pips remain. The sauce is ready.
3. To make the sundaes pour some sauce into the bottom of each sundae glass, then add 2 brownie bites and then some chopped strawberries.
4. Add 2 scoops of ice cream, strawberry sauce, 2 brownie bites. Finally top with more ice cream, strawberries and a brownie and then drizzle on more strawberry sauce. Serve immediately.
Total cost £5.50
Cost per serving £1.375
*I already had icing sugar in my cupboard so I’ve not included it in the cost.
These sundaes were a great way to finish off our bank holiday barbecue and I’ll definitely be making them again.
