  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream
  • Multi-colored sprinkles, if desired

  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for nonstick pan). Place paper baking cups in 12 regular-size muffin cups.
  2. Place brownie dough rounds into muffin cups. Bake 21 to 23 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out almost clean.

  4. Place fudge topping in small microwavable bowl; microwave uncovered on High 30 to 40 seconds or until topping can be stirred. Spoon a tablespoonful of fudge topping into each brownie center. Top with small scoop of ice cream. If necessary, microwave remaining fudge topping uncovered on High 10 to 20 seconds or until thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over ice cream. Top with sprinkles and cherries.

Recipe Tips

  • Brownies are best the same day. If making the day before, store at room temperature in airtight container until ready to assemble.
  • Get creative with your filled brownie cups! Additional filling and topping ideas include caramel topping, crushed chocolate sandwich cookies, mini candy-coated chocolate candies, sliced berries or banana, chopped nuts and mini chocolate chips. Use your favorite flavor of ice cream to change things up!
