Brownie Sundae Bon Bons

Brownie Sundae Bon Bons

It’s been soooo hot the last few days. Like historically hot with record-breaking temperatures in Georgia. Throw in our humidity and it’s a recipe for staying inside and enjoying the cool breeze of the air conditioner. I’ve lived without one when I was younger, but in the south, the a/c is definitely appreciated. So instead of turning on the oven, I played around with candy molds and ice cream. Thank goodness for ice cream on hot days. I thought I’d divvy it up a little though and enjoy the simple luxury of having ice cream I can hold in my hands. Bite-size bon bons ready to eat at any given moment. Plus this way I can stretch out the ice cream instead of eating it by the bowlful… which I would do.

Medium Candy Cup Mold

I used these medium size candy cup molds (mold # 90-5607) to form the bon bons. If you wanted to make a bunch, several molds would be handy. But you can always repeat and reuse.

Chocolate

Pour some melted chocolate candy coating in each cavity.

And tilt the mold in multiple directions to let the chocolate coat the shape.

You can place it in the freezer for a couple of minutes to set quickly.

Ice Cream

Then just fill it with ice cream just below the edge of the mold.

And for brownie bon bons, fill it about halfway to leave room for brownie.

It helps if the ice cream is a little soft to fill the cavity. After it’s filled, place it back in the freezer for the ice cream to firm up again.

Then pour a tiny bit of chocolate syrup on top and cover with brownie.

I had made these recently and decided to use a few of the brownies I had not eaten for this tiny treat. You can pinch off a little bit and press it flat. Then lay it on top of the syrup and cover with more melted chocolate.

Yum!

And now I have the luxury of grabbing a bite of ice cream at any given moment. At least until they are gone – which won’t be much longer.

I had some blank ice cream cups that I thought would be fun to put the bon bons in. But they needed to be dressed up a little for pictures so I made these cute labels.

They’d would be so cute at a party if you could keep them cold.

If you want the label, here’s a pdf of the artwork I created.

And here’s a place you can order the plain bowls.

The molds make it easier to layer the brownie bon bons. The mold (#90-5604) on the left is smaller and just right for one bite satisfaction. One flavor and all good. You can see the difference compared to the medium candy cup mold.

Here’s another mold (#90-5113) that’s pretty neat. There are tons to choose from, but these were a few I already own. You could also use ice cube trays for bigger bites.

  • Melt coating and fill mold cavities. Rotate mold and allow the coating to work it’s way around the surface of the cavity. Wipe off any excess that may pour over the opening and then place in the freezer for a couple of minutes to set.
  • Place ice cream on top of chocolate. I used a flat teaspoon and it was pretty handy. If it’s softened a bit, you can spread it around or pat it flat. Then refreeze the ice cream.
  • When frozen, pour a tiny amount of chocolate syrup on top.
  • Take a few fudgy brownies and press a small piece flat to layer on top of thw syrup.
  • Seal top with more candy coating and freeze. When set, drizzle more chocolate on top and add sprinkles. Then store covered in the freezer until you walk by the next time and need to grab a bite.
  • Try other shaped molds or even ice cube trays for bigger brownie bon bons.

  41. Super cute! I love Cake Art (I think I saw you go there)! They have the best molds (and anything else I have been dreaming of)! I have been making something similar to this for a while and they are great! It’s cute to use the different color candy coatings for different flavors of ice cream!

  42. It was in the upper 80s on Friday when I baked my gluten free (and dairy free) version of your “Just a Cake” chocolate cake. Mine wasn’t quite as pretty as yours, but awfully tasty. I might have wanted to make these instead!

  47. Adorable! I am curious-what computer program do you use to make your artwork?

  48. These are really cute! I’m new to this and wondering if it’s possible to use dark chocolate in place of the candy coating? It is so hot lately and I’ve definitely got ice cream on my mind as well! Thank you!

  49. Thanks guys. I really appreciate all the nice words.

    Ashley P – It was 106 in GA Saturday – all time record.

    Annabella & Crystal V – I used Adobe Illustrator to make the artwork and template.

    Nick Beard – cause it was so hot.

    Shelan – Try the caramel cone – my favorite right now

    Mommbsta – yeah – thought of that when I was finished but also then it wouldn’t have the layered look.

    Monica – Merkens makes a dark chocolate candy coating.

  50. i think these would be smashing using that egg-less cookie dough you posted earlier as well. so many good ideas. thank you!

  51. It´s very delicate.

  52. These look just as delicious as they are adorable! My sister and I LOVE anything ice cream, brownie and chocolate. I have to make these for us some time. Thank you Bakerella for all of your sweet ideas!

  58. Girl, I am sweating along with you in Georgia, Suwanee to be exact. These, along with everything else you make, are absolutely perfect, timely, and expertly styled! You can count on me to eat like 15 bon bons in 30 seconds. . .if it takes me that long.

    Definitely have to make these with my sister’s kids. They’d LOVE them!

  63. see this is why I love chocolate molds, they can make some really great things!

  78. Love this!!! ….just so you know I am hosting a “TrueBlood” party Sunday and I’m going to make these happen!!! you’re awesome!! Love everything you do!! :)

  79. I would love to buy that mould, but I can’t order it :(
    Cause I live in Norway, Europe and they don’t ship there :( :(

  80. Wow!! These are adorable…love the idea!!

  81. Those are super cute! I love everything you do! I was just wondering, I know you make your own labels, but where do you make them?

  82. Instead of ice cream, is it possible to just fill it with brownies? Maybe put vanilla cake inside? I’m just not sure how it’ll be if it’s in the freezer so the chocolate sets. I would like to make these for a party, but I don’t want ice cream inside. It’ll be a cute brownie/cake truffle idea. Let me know please!!!!

  83. Fantastic presentation. Looks yummy too!

  84. Love ’em! Can’t wait to make these. :)

  85. Just when i thought i´ve seen it all, you surprise again!!! you are amazing!!!! such an inspiration!!!

  86. just as Peggy explained I’m shocked that a student can make $6532 in a few weeks on the computer. have you seen this site (Click on menu Home more information) http://goo.gl/BnSeI

  87. I love love this idea. I could eat the whole batch

  88. Wow! these looks so cute. It inspires me to think outside of the box when I saw your sweets. I am definitely sure that they taste as good as they look.
