The aroma of all natural vanilla icecream, plus the bittersweet flavor of chocolate rownie, the tartness of raspberry, and the sweetness of toffee syrup, altogether they form a perfect symphony of flavors.

 

Restaurants often serve ice cream with a wafer stick or a piece of ice cream waffle. They not only serve as garnish, but could also warm the tongue and mouth back up that has been numbed up by the ice cream. The brownie used in this recipe serves the same purpose.

 

This brownie is especially made to be enjoyed with ice cream. It is much dense than regular brownies, such that, they crumble very easily. When used as an ice cream topping, it can be easily broken up with a spoon.

 

Other than serving it alongside ice cream, it is also very delicious all by itself, and it astes even better cold.

Note:

When westerners make brownie, they tend to add a lot of baking soda or baking powder, whether it is a dense brownie recipe or not. Baking powder and baking soda can make the texture fluffier, but they do not enhance the flavor, feel free to add them, if you want.

5) The water will incorporate into the mixture pretty quickly, kill the heat, pour the syrup into a clean container, it will stay fresh for over a week even without refrigeration.

Note:

If you don't have malt sugar, you can use regular sugar. The result will be sweet, and the mixture would be more inclined to form crystals in the cooking process.

 

Toffee syrup ice cream toppers are delicious but very sweet. Europeans like it better than us. They pour on top of ice cream, as well as at the bottom of the container. By the time we finish the ice cream we'd probably be a little overwhelmed by the sweetness, rather than just feeling cold.
