Brownie Caramel Ice Cream Sandwiches

Brownie and Salted Caramel Ice Cream Sandwiches 

1 batch favorite brownies (I cheated and used Trader Joe's mix)

1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened to spreadable consistency 

caramel sauce (I used and recommend Trader Joe's Fleur de Sel Caramel in the jar) 

Preheat oven following brownie recipe instructions. Spray bottom of baking pan with nonstick spray. Line bottom with parchment paper (this will make removing the entire pan of brownies much easier). Bake and cool brownies completely. Remove the entire batch from the pan by lifting out parchment. Use a serrated knife to carefully slice the large brownie in half horizontally. If the top piece breaks apart a bit it's no big deal, the ice cream and caramel will glue it back together.

Spread ice cream in an even layer over bottom brownie layer. You decided how much ice cream filling you want! Spread desired amount of caramel over ice cream, working quickly so ice cream doesn't melt too much. Top with top piece of brownie. Place huge ice cream sandwich back in baking dish or on a large plate and freeze until hard. Cut into squares. These are best when left to soften for a minute.
