BROWNIE-CHERRY-ICE CREAM DESSERT

1 box (1 lb 3.8 oz) fudge brownie mix

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup water

1 tsp almond extract

2 eggs

4 cups vanilla ice cream, slightly softened

1 bag (12-oz) frozen dark sweet cherries, halved

1/3 cup chocolate-flavored syrup

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 13x9-inch pan with shortening. In large bowl, stir brownie mix, oil, water, almond extract and eggs with spoon until well blended. Pour batter into pan.

Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

In another large bowl, mix ice cream and cherries. Place heaping spoonfuls of ice cream mixture over brownies; lightly press with back of spoon to smooth. Freeze at least 1 hour before serving.

If too firm to cut, let stand at room temperature 10 minutes. Drizzle individual servings with syrup.

I've made this before but slightly different. When the brownies are cool, cut and insert foil in the cut lines with foil standing tall (to keep ice cream in place). Use spumoni ice cream and top each brownie with cherry, pistachio, or chocolate. Let stand in the freezer till firm then serve.  Drizzle with chocolate - yum! If you use vanilla ice cream, you can use an ice cream topping of your choice - pineapple is very good.
