Hot Berries 'n' Brownie Ice Cream Cake

Hot Berries 'n' Brownie Ice Cream Cake
from the kitchen of Hilary Weeks

Brownie ice Cream Cake:
1 package fudge brownie mix...I like the Ghirardelli brownie mix at Costco
(water, oil and egg as directed by the brownie mix)
1 carton vanilla ice cream, softened

Berry Sauce:
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons lime juice (I like to use fresh)
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 quart fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
2 cups fresh blueberries
2 cups fresh raspberries

Directions: Prepare brownie mix using water, oil and eggs. Bake according to package directions; cool completely. Crumble brownies into 1-in. pieces or so; sprinkle half into a 13-in. x 9-in. dish coated with cooking spray. Spread evenly with softened ice cream. Press remaining brownie pieces into ice cream. Cover and freeze for 1 hour or until firm. Remove from the freezer 5 minutes before serving. For sauce, in a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in the sugar, honey, lime juice, vinegar, cinnamon and cayenne. Add berries; cook for 3-5 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Cut cake into squares; top with hot berry sauce. Yield: 24 servings. ENJOY!!!
