I am currently obsessed with Bon Appetit's brown butter brownie recipe and made them for another dinner party! They are super easy to make ahead and this time I used walnuts and even threw in a quarter cup of quality chocolate chips. For a new take on the presentation, I cut the brownies into bite-sized pieces and then used my 1-inch tablespoon stainless scoop (I usually use it for cookie dough) for the ice cream. For just a little more interest, I shaved some 70% cocoa Venezuelan chocolate across the top. The result was perfect everyone quickly gobbled up all of the mini brownie bites with a fight for the last one! Always a sign of a successful dessert. I think if I was to do again, I might make the mini scoop ahead of time and the refreeze them since the ice cream had started to melt by the last one.
