Really? Rosemary Brownies and Rosemary Ice Cream? Sounds a bit bizarre, right? The first time I made these brownies was for Debbie and Phil’s 6o’s Hippie themed Gr8 dinner. We were asked to bring “Blitzed Brownies and Ice Cream.” Well, let’s just say that I substituted the “blitzed” ingredient with rosemary and it was gr8 combined with chocolate and salt! This was my first attempt and relied on a super delicious recipe I found on BAKED the blog. I chose this recipe mostly because I loved the idea of adding coconut oil in lieu of cooking oil.
The rosemary infusion in the ice cream is not what you would expect, but combined with the sweet cream it is a subtle, delightful, unexpected surprise. It is always a bit scary to serve something for the first time but once I tasted the ice cream right from the ice cream maker, I knew it was going to be a Gr8 hit! Honestly, give it a try and don’t tell anyone that what looks like vanilla ice cream is actually rosemary ice cream. Their expressions will be affirmation that you have made another winning dessert! These rosemary brownies paired with the rosemary ice cream will “wow” your guests!
The recipe for the brownies is from BAKED the blog! They are delicious!
