Double Chocolate Brownie Dough ‘Blizzard’

Over the past few months, Eric has been taking a Project Management Course to get his Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. It hasn’t been easy on him juggling work, the 3.5 hour daily commute, studying, and building the deck at the same time! We’ve been looking forward to the completion of the course so he doesn’t have to spend his evenings studying.

He was under a lot of pressure to pass because his work was paying for the course and no one wants to tell their boss and coworkers they failed the exam. We joked that he probably studied more for this exam than for all his exams combined in university!

Wednesday, Eric wrote the 400-question PMP exam and he passed with flying colours! Whew.

We celebrated, Blizzard style… :)

I loved reading through your comments on what Blizzard flavours I should make next! So many great ideas. For my 3rd version, I decided to make a spin-off of DQ’s Brownie Batter Blizzard:

DQ10Q4027P_BrownieBatter_28

[source]

It boasts, ‘Double chocolate brownie batter blended with real fudge brownie pieces and creamy vanilla soft serve’

Yes please!

My previous two versions below:

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Blizzard                         Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch Blizzard

IMG_2985-4 IMG_8587-2

The first thing I did was whip up some double chocolate brownie dough balls in the food processor.

Double chocolaty.

Crunchy.

Nutty.

Chewy.

Sweet & salty.

What’s not to love?

Double Chocolate Brownie Dough ‘Blizzard’

  • Banana Soft Serve or your favourite ice cream
  • Cocoa powder & peanut butter, to taste
  • Brownie dough balls (from above)
  • Toasted coconut, for garnish

 

1. In a food processor, process your desired amount of frozen bananas until a creamy soft serve forms. We use 3 large bananas for 2 people. OR, simply grab your favourite ice cream and scoop it into the processor.

2. Add cocoa powder and peanut butter, to taste and process until combined.

3. Crumble 2-3 brownie dough balls into the processor and pulse until just combined.

4. Scoop into bowls or glass and crumble another ball on top with toasted coconut, for garnish. Enjoy on a hot summer day!

I think this flavour would work better without banana soft serve. The banana was just a bit too pronounced in this combo. Next time, I might use Chocolate Coconut Bliss and do without the banana flavour coming through.

Otherwise it was fantastic!

I had to be quick with the photoshoot under the hot sun because I was making a huge mess, as usual!

Though, we clean up pretty well. ;)

Have a great Friday!

And congrats to you for making the world a better place by creating Double Chocolate Brownie Dough Balls. Wow. Angela they look awesome!

I grew up eating DQ Blizzards and Heath Bar was my fave. But after seeing this, I dont miss Heath Bar blizzards for a second. I just need to make this….omg it looks soooo good!

Oh my, you’ve done it again! I think I might eat all the dough balls before I have a chance to get them into the blizzard!!

Zestful Lou July 15, 2011 at 8:36 am

That’s one question I had about these blizzards: Does the banana flavor come through a lot? For example, did the peanut butter chocolate crunch blizzard have a pronounced banana flavor??

Reply

Amanda July 15, 2011 at 8:36 am

I just have to ask, how the heck to do eat your overflowing goodies without making a sticky mess?? :)

Reply

Shelly July 15, 2011 at 8:37 am

Angela you are an evil genius. (Minus the evil part!) :) I made a batch of your original cookie dough while waiting for my bananas to get ripe enough to freeze and I think I’m going to be out of dough before the bananas are ready to eat!
I have two ideas/suggestions. The first is that the cookie dough balls would make AMAZING cookies for ice cream sandwhiches if you flattened them out. I think you might need to fill them with coconut bliss ice cream rather than banana soft serve to get the proper texture, but I think it could be amazing. :) I’ll try it out with my next batch.
The second idea come from the fact that I found almond meal at Trader Joes- I’d love to figure out how to make an almond joy cookie ball- maybe almond meal, shredded coconut, and almond chunks with choc chips…. Maybe you could do that for your next blizzard flavor! :)

Faith @ For the Health of It July 15, 2011 at 8:40 am

I seriously lived off of the brownie blizzards in college – my roomie and I had struck the perfect deal; she would buy, I would go pick them up. Such a fun tradition, I miss it…but I don’t miss the awful feeling after eating the huge thing! I’m thinking this would leave me feeling way better!

Tell Eric congrats, by the way!

Suzanne July 15, 2011 at 8:51 am

Congrats to Eric! What a lot of work that was —and a 3.5 hour commute – oh my! That alone would be enough to push me over the edge!
I made the banana soft serve – came out good – but I agree – we do not always want the banana flavor. I wish there was a way to do vanilla. Do you know if you can make vanilla ice cream with almond milk? I thought of trying that but figured it would be on the market if it really worked!

Where do you get the dates? (regular grocery store or specialty/dry shelf or produce?) I really want to try them as I see them in a few of your recipes. I actually think they had them for us at a hotel we went to last weekend – they gave us a few plates of snacks in our room and I tried these things – very sweet! Deeeelicious :-)

Reply

Julie @ Shining From Within July 15, 2011 at 8:53 am

I bet you could freeze almond milk into cubes and then process into “ice cream”. Chocolate almond milk or other non dairy milk frozen and then processed would be awesome too!

Reply

Zestful Lou July 15, 2011 at 9:41 am

I’ve seen recipes around the blog world that use a combination of soy creamer and almond milk to make some delicious-looking vegan ice creams. Search “almond milk ice cream” and something is bound to come up!

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 15, 2011 at 9:47 am

mm that sounds good, I havent tried it myself!
I buy my dates in bulk from Ontario Natural Food Coop.

Suzanne July 15, 2011 at 6:15 pm

Thanks for the ideas – I will search it and try. I will have to make a trip to the coop near here (It is phenomenal but 1.5 hrs away) – I am sure they have the dates too.

Chocolate-Covered Katie has the easiest, simplest recipe I’ve found for vanilla ice cream, but I’m not sure about etiquette when it comes to linking to other blogs on somebody else’s blog (if you see what I mean! Just trying to do the right thing!), so I can only suggest you Google “chocolate covered katie voluminous ice cream” – it should be the first link to come up :)

I studied harder for that than I’ve ever studied my whole life and cried in the parking lot after the test because I was so happy I passed!! Maybe I’ll make this Blizzard for myself and call it the PMP Blizzard! :)

Big congrats to Eric!! In my field, PMP is often expected (though I doubt that PMP determines an individual’s ability to manage a projecte effectively), and studying for the test takes a lot of time. My husband avoided it for a year, but will have to start studying this year, probably, due to pressure from work. Maybe I’ll encourage him with some of these tasty delights. ;)

I’ve been so excited you are doing the blizzard BSS! Especially chocolate brownie because I’m a total chocoholic.
I have a chronic illness and one of my meds needs potassium to supplement it. Daily bananas is one of the simplest ways.biggest problem I HATE BANANAS and have my whole life but I manage to choke them down daily.
Anyways I recently found out that I have a dairy allergy and although feel better dairy free I really miss ice cream. BSS has been such a thrill for me. I love adding things to it and playing around :) my favorite has been adding cocoa powder & peanut butter.
The other day I wanted to see what’d happen if I made bunch & refroze it. Guess what??? Letting the cocoa & pb sit it covered up the banana flavor!!! You could try that with the brownie balls.
When you refreeze you do have to let it sit for like 10 minutes when you take it out though. After I tried it refrozen for the first time I just wanted to keep smiling. I can feel like I’m eating rEal chocolate ice cream!

You’re a genius!!! My non-vegan boyfriend goes to DQ all the time and gets that exact blizzard…I already made your cookie dough balls for him with the banana soft serve and he loved it…so I know this will be a big hit! Thank you Angela :)

Your Blizzards look amazing! I’d be vegan, but I can’t give up the ice cream/yogurt/honey quite yet…maybe some day :P

Oh my gosh… i am pregnant and have been wanting icecream for so long..but have YET to get it yet this pregnancy and im already 32 weeks!! I always knew it would make me feel terrible since I don’t handle dairy and sugar well, so i didn’t bother ever buying it. THANK GOD for your recipe! LOL. I just made this with frozen bananas and oh my gosh…it is even better then icecream! Thank you so much!! :) I love that you show ways to eat healthy without sacrificing taste! :) its just awesome!

Yuuuum!!! I love how chocolate and banana taste together so I definitely wouldn’t mind the strong banana flavor! :) Also, congrats to Eric!!

You’re right…the bananas don’t work. I love bananas but this was just not the right thing…I’m amazed to find I do not like BSS. The brownie dough balls are great, though, and I will try again with some Coconut Bliss or maybe So Delicious.

Thank you so much for sharing your recipes and stories. I am newly vegan and struggling to find foods that I really like. I am giving myself time tho, since i have been eating meat for 40 something years before i chose vegan for health reasons.
i LOVE the brownie bites. They taste like milk duds to me, and since my hubby still likes a blizzard now and again… I can enjoy something similar.
Your web site is so beautiful. I was so excited to see all the yummy pictures. I tried the blueberry muffins, and have many more to try too! Thank you again!!

Hi ! After trying the Peanut Butter blizzard last night, which was amazing, I think this one will be next on my list to try. I agree with someone, Heath blizzards are the best and definitely one that needs a healthy recipe made for it! Or mint cookie. Or coffee :)

PS- I’m confused… I thought all your recipes were vegan, but I’ve seen some that call for dark chocolate chips. Is it just assumed that you buy vegan dark chocolate chips? Because dark c.c. have milk in them, and I haven’t seen a vegan version, but if there is I’ll keep looking!
