This post is generously sponsored by Chapman’s and I was compensated for my time in creating this recipe. Thank you for supporting the brands that make The Recipe Rebel possible!

If you weren’t already aware from my Holiday Ice Cream Sandwich Cake, Gluten-Free Ice Cream Sandwiches, or my Caramel Praline Ice Cream Cupcakes, we are big fans of any desserts involving ice cream.

Specifically, ice cream desserts made with Chapman’s Ice Cream! It’s rich, creamy and made with Canadian dairy which is so important to us.

This Brownie Sundae has to be a new favorite! It has a thick, fudgy homemade brownie base layered with coffee chip ice cream, chocolate sauce, and more.

It’s so easy to make, so decadent, and will satisfy all your dessert cravings! Plus, the brownies can be made in advance which means it’s perfect for summer entertaining.

ingredients needed for coffee chip brownie sundae.

Homemade Brownies

  • Butter: melted butter adds moisture to create a chewier texture.
  • Granulated Sugar: a must have in any sweet treat 😉
  • Vanilla: adds flavor depth and a touch of sweetness.
  • Eggs: our binding agent to help the brownies hold shape.
  • Flour: all-purpose flour gives the brownies structure. You can also use whole wheat flour or an equal weight of gluten free oat flour for a gluten-free dessert.
  • Cocoa Powder: use good quality cocoa powder. It’s the MVP for incredibly fudgy and flavorful brownies.
  • Salt: cuts the sweetness and enhances the flavor.

Brownie Sundae

  • Ice Cream: I love to use Chapman’s Original Coffee Chip Ice Cream for this recipe, but any flavor of Chapman’s ice cream will work.
  • Chocolate Sauce: use a thick chocolate sauce to drizzle over top the ice cream.
  • Chocolate Chips: I like to use mini chocolate chips so they incorporate better with the other ingredients.
  • Toppings: use any sundae toppings you like! I love whipped cream, maraschino cherries, sprinkles, and chopped peanuts, but we kept it simple here.

How to Make a Brownie Sundae

Even with whipping up a batch of homemade brownies, this Brownie Sundae recipe comes together with just 15 minutes of hands-on time!

  1. Make the brownie batter: In a bowl, combine butter, sugar, and vanilla. Whisk in eggs, then add flour, cocoa, and salt.
  2. Bake: Transfer the batter to a foil or parchment-lined and greased 9×13″ baking dish, then bake until the brownies are set. I like them a little gooey in the middle, but you can bake until completely set if that’s more your style.
  3. Cool: Cool the brownies completely before serving with ice cream (if you can wait that long!) so that it doesn’t melt too quickly.
  4. Assemble and serve the Brownie Sundae: Slice the brownies into 12 large pieces, then place one brownie on a plate. Top with Coffee Chip Ice Cream, chocolate sauce, and chocolate chips, then serve immediately.


What is the definition of a Brownie Sundae?

A Brownie Sundae is an ice cream dessert made up of brownies topped with ice cream and other classic ice cream sundae toppings. It’s one of the best combinations if you ask me!

What are some other ice cream flavours that go well with brownies?

What doesn’t? We also love Mint Chip, French Vanilla, Chocolate, Cookies ‘n’ Cream or Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup!

How to store leftover brownies:

The brownie recipe makes 12 large or 24 small brownies so unless you are making 12 sundaes, you will have leftovers!
To store them, keep them in the fridge for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 3 months. I like to wrap them individually to make these Brownie Sundaes for a quick treat any night of the week.

Tips and Variations

  • Brownie batter texture: Once the brownie batter is all mixed up, it will be super thick. This is okay! It creates the thick and fudgy brownies we want for this recipe.
  • Let the brownies cool completely. If they’re still hot when you add the ice cream it will just melt quickly.
  • Serve immediately. As we know, ice cream melts. Once your Brownie Sundae is assembled, serve it right away!
  • Switch it up: Try mixing up the sauces and toppings as well as the ice cream flavours! Toffee bits, chopped nuts, crushed cookies, strawberry and caramel sauces are all great additions.

Homemade Brownies*

  • 1 cup butter (melted)
  • 2 ½ cups granulated sugar (500 grams)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups flour (about 195g)
  • 1 cup cocoa powder (about 80 grams)
  • ½ tsp salt

Brownie Sundae (per sundae)

  • ½ cup Chapman's Original Coffee Chip Ice Cream (or any flavor of Chapman's ice cream)
  • 2 tablespoons thick chocolate sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips
  • other optional toppings, such as whipped cream, maraschino cherries, sprinkles, chopped peanuts, etc.


To make brownies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar and vanilla with a whisk until smooth.
  • Whisk in eggs and beat until smooth.
  • Stir in flour, cocoa and salt until combined. The batter will be very thick! That's okay.
  • Line a 9×13" pan with tin foil or parchment and spray with non-stick spray. Spread batter in prepared pan.
  • Bake for 24-30 minutes or until almost completely set in the middle — they will not be glossy but may have a slight jiggle. If you like them gooey, take them out on the earlier side. If you want them fully baked, wait until a toothpick comes out clean.

Brownie Sundae

  • Wait until brownies have cooled completely and slice into 12 large pieces (or make them smaller if you wish!).
  • Place one brownie on a plate. Top with one scoop of Coffee Chip Ice Cream, drizzle with chocolate sauce and sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.
  • Serve immediately.


*The brownie recipe makes 12 large or 24 small brownies, but you don’t have to make 12 sundaes! You can store leftover brownies in the refrigerator for 1 week or in the freezer up to 3 months. Wrap individually to make these Brownie Sundaes a quick treat for any night of the week.
