I’m actually still in the process of perfecting this, but here is what I started with and it is already a family favorite.
This is best kept in the freezer and has a nice soft/crunchy texture to it.
The hardest part about this recipe (besides needing the right equipment) is not eating all the brownie batter while waiting for it to dry! I barely had any left to make this piece because of my nibbling! So I actually doubled the original recipe that I made. I hope it turns out the same.
If you don’t want to go through the trouble of making and assembling this with the vanilla cream, it also makes great brownies. Try putting jungle peanuts on top! Yum!
The Vanilla filling is a very slight alteration from the Vanilla Cream recipe in the Raw Food, Real World cookbook.
