  • Mixing Bowl
  • Muffin Tin


  • 8 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 cup margarine
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 ½ cups flour
  • 1 cup chopped nuts optional
  • pinch salt
  • 6 cups ice cream your fave flavor
  • cup sprinkles optional topping


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  • Spray a muffin pan with non stick cooking spray, or fill with cupcake liners, and set aside.
  • Melt margarine.  Stir in cocoa.
  • Mix sugar and eggs in mixing bowl.
  • Stir in margarine and cocoa.  Add vanilla, flour, and salt.
  • Drop about 1/3 cup of brownie batter into each cupcake liner, or space.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean after being inserted into the middle.
  • After baked, smash down center of each brownie with a spoon, or scoop out the middle, forming a miniature bowl. I used my salt and pepper shakers to shape the middle and that seemed to work great.
  • Scoop your favorite flavor of ice cream and place into the small brownie bowl, top with your favorite toppings, and serve. Best if served warm!


You can also add toppings of your choice.
