Ingredients needed for Brownie Cookies
- 1 pound semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 4 large eggs, at room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Chili powder
Other ingredients needed
- Vanilla ice cream

In a large bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, melt the chopped chocolate with the butter, stirring a few times, until smooth, approximately 6- 7 minutes.
In another large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the eggs with the sugar at medium speed, about 5 minutes. Beat in the vanilla , Chili powder and salt. Using a spatula, fold in the melted chocolate, then fold in the flour and baking powder. Scrape the batter into a baking dish, cover and refrigerate about 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. using a large ice cream scoop , scoop out mixture on baking sheet leaving 3 inches space between. Bake for about 10-12 minutes in preheated oven of 350 degrees.
Remove cookies from oven and completely cool before removing from baking sheet. Place cookies in freezer for 30 minutes to an hour in a covered container.
In a shallow container place a decent amount of candy sprinkles, set to side.
Remove Brownie cookies from freezer. place on clean dry baking sheet in an assembly line of tops above bottoms.
Using a large ice cream scoop , scoop 1-2 scoops (depending on how thick you want ice cream to be, we used 2 scoops) of ice cream in center of cookie bottom. Carefully place Brownie Cookie on top. Lightly press together. (Do not press to hard or cookie will crack or break) Once ice cream is even on all sides, using a clean fingertip smooth edges.
Once done roll ice cream sandwich sideways in sprinkles, evenly coat. (If it is not sticking by rolling you may manually place on sides by scooping on sides and lightly shaking excess off)
