Ingredients for Cosmic Brownie Ice Cream
For exact ingredient amounts and specific numbered instructions, scroll down to the printable recipe.
For The Brownie Batter
- Melted Butter– I use salted butter. If you only have unsalted, add an extra pinch of salt to the batter.
- Brown Sugar– The combination of sugars gives a really rich deep flavor.
- Cream– There really isn’t a good substitute for this- Using anything but heavy whipping cream will give you icey ice cream instead of creamy ice cream.
- Vanilla– Use your favorite brand.
- Flour– We will quickly heat treat the flour to make it safe for consumption.
- Cocoa– Just unsweetened cocoa, doesn’t need to be dutch processed. I used the Hershey’s brand of cocoa.
For The Ice Cream Base
- Brown Sugar
- Heavy Cream– Again, don’t substitute this one!
- Whole Milk– If you are in a pinch, half ‘n half works okay as a substitute but whole milk is the best.
For The Mix Ins
- Cosmic Brownies– Chopped small!
- Candy Coated Chocolate Chips- These can sometimes be a little tricky to find, you can get them on Amazon, Hobby Lobby or in a pinch you can use mini M&M’s.
How to Make No Churn Little Debbie Ice Cream
Start by making the brownie batter.
In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the flour for 30 seconds. This heat treatment will make the raw flour safe to eat. Add the melted butter, both sugars, cream, vanilla, cocoa and salt and stir until well combined.
Now, make the ice cream base and combine it with the brownie batter.
In a blender, or with a bowl and an immersion blender, add the ingredients for the ice cream base and pulse to combine. Add the brownie batter and continue to pulse until the ice cream is thick and well combined.
How to Freeze No Churn Ice Cream
Pour into a freezer safe container. Freeze the ice cream for an hour and then stir. Repeat this process for 3 hours. After 3 hours fold in the chopped brownies and candy chips.
Return the ice cream to the freezer and freeze until solid.
Where to buy Little Debbie Ice Cream
If you’d like to buy some ice cream at the store, Little Debbie Ice Cream is exclusively sold at Walmart.
Little Debbie Ice Cream Flavors
Along with this Cosmic Brownie Ice Cream there are other flavors like Honey Buns, Zebra Cake, Strawberry Shortcake Rolls, Oatmeal Cream Pies, Nutty Bars, Swiss Roll, Star Crunch and Unicorn Cake! I plan on making copycat recipes for several of these flavors, so let me know which one you’d like to see next.
Can you make this ice cream with an ice cream maker?
You can, I haven’t found a difference in the final ice cream, though. If you’d like to try, follow your ice cream machine’s specific instructions.
