directions

Step 1

Melt butter and chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler or in a microwave. Set the chocolate mixture aside and cool until slightly above room temperature.

Step 2

Add the egg mixture to the melted chocolate and whisk to combine. With a rubber spatula, gently fold the flour into the batter until combined.

Step 3

Pour the batter & evenly distribute into a non-stick 9 by 13-inch baking pan. Bake at 350ºF for about 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the brownies emerges without any batter clinging to it.

Step 4

Remove brownies from pan and move to a wire rack to cool. When cooled, cut into squares that are roughly 3 inches by 3 inches.

Step 5

Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to a blender and mix to a thick consistency. Not too firm and not too thin. Set aside.

Step 6

Cut brownie on a diagonal and place into a glass bowl. Place the brownies across from each other, creating the base for your ice cream.

Step 7

Place two scoops of the chocolate ice cream on top of the brownie base.

Step 8

Pour the vanilla shake on top of the chocolate ice cream, covering all sides.

Step 9

Pour chocolate shell on top of the vanilla milkshake. Let sit for 1 minute to harden around the milkshake.

Step 10

Top with fresh whipped cream, chocolate shavings and a cherry.

Step 11

Place semi-sweet chocolate chips and coconut oil in the top bowl of a double-broiler. For roughly 1 minute, allow to melt gently over indirect heat. Stir continuously until smooth & completely melted.
