Ice cream and brownies...yumm... Let's face it I'm a chocoholic, and a sugar junkie to the point that fruits are replaced with sugars. Well a few years ago I fell in love with the Brownie Earthquake at a local Diary Queen. Big fat brownie, vanilla ice cream, cold fudge, and cool whip, I was in heaven. It has all of my favorites in one bowl. Bad part is they are expensive and with everything going up in price with the economy the cost are still rising. So one night I started thinking why am I paying close to $5 for this when I could make many of them for about the same price at home, plus save the gas driving to our local DQ. With very little prep work and about 40 minutes I had a brownie earthquake in the comfort of my home without having to deal with the extreme weather outdoors.


Your favorite brownie box mix
Cool Whip
Your choice of ice cream
Chocolate Chips or Chocolate Syrup

Preheat oven, prepare brownie mix, and cook as directed on box. Get a bowl and scoop in 3 scoops of ice cream, cut a brownie out a good size piece about a 4 inch square and cut it in half. Place each half of your brownie on either side of ice cream. A few small dollops of cool whip; to make it look pretty use a icing bag with a star tip. If you don't have a icing bag you can use a sandwich bag, cut a small hole in the bottom corner of bag and squeeze out the cool whip. I had a star icing tip that I used with the sandwich bag, but no tip will work just as good, or just grab a spoon and throw some in around the ice cream. For the cold fudge I used a handful of chocolate chips. Melted them in the microwave until I could spoon them easily and it would drip off the spoon. Then just take your spoon and shake it a bit across the bowl, it should drip and leave the drizzle effect. The extra you can just drop around your bowl. As the chocolate cools in with the ice cream it will harden and tastes just like real cold fudge topping. That's it.

* If you have chocolate syrup then just drizzle it all over the ice cream and then add your cool whip.
