I love making quick and easy desserts, especially if it involves brownies and ice cream. Say those two words, and I’m in! This easy brownie sundae recipe idea came as I was trying to figure how to make an elegant and thoughtful dessert for Valentine’s Day without having to spend hours in the kitchen. After all, this day is all about spending quality time with your significant other.
How to Make Super Easy Brownie Sundaes
This shortcut brownie sundae recipe is very simple, with only 5 ingredients:
