The beet ice cream sandwiches were by far the most “controversial” item we served at the party last night. The looks on people’s faces, when they saw the sandwiches!!!
I followed the recipe from Bravetart for the wafers. The one substitution I made was the use of a Starbucks Via packet rather than the instant espresso powder. This recipe came together very nicely, just as described, but the coffee flavor was overpowering… perhaps I made the coffee too strong and the Via was too strong.
I definitely suggest one change to the procedure. When putting the bottom layer into the brownie pan, use the parchment sling to lower the cookie into the pan. I didn’t do this, and instead made a big freaking mess.
One other suggestion: make a template of the brownie pan so that you can cut the cookie exactly to size.
The assembled sandwiches came out of the pan very easily:
The final product. I thought these were awesome, but I would definitely hold back on the coffee flavor if I were to make these again. Overall, this was a great “project”!!
