  • 1 recipe of your favorite brownies prepared as you usually do (see notes for addition of Kahlua)
  • 1 pint Coffee Ice Cream
  • 1 large box Chocolate Mousse
  • 3 cups of milk
  • Whipped Topping
  • Chocolate Shavings
For the ganache:
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • ⅔ cup heavy cream less 2 tbsp for Kahlua, see notes
  • 1 tbsp butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees .
  2. In a large bowl combine the brownie ingredients. Oil, water, Kahlua, egg and brownie mix. (see notes)
  3. Pour the batter into an 8 inch sprayed baking pan and bake for 40 minutes.
  4. When the brownie comes out poke all over with a toothpick and pour 1 tbsp over top to soak in. This is optional.
  5. Prepare the ganache by placing all the ingredients in a sauce pan over low heat. Whisk until smooth then cool to room temperature.
  6. Prepare mousse according to package directions.
  7. Layer your glass with 1 scoop ice cream, top with brownie and let sit in the freezer for 10 minutes at a 45* angle.
  8. Remove and top with ganache, return to freezer at the angle for another 10 minutes.
  9. Remove and add 2 tbsp chocolate mousse.  Top with whipped cream and garnish with shaved chocolate curls.
  1. My brownie mix is Ghirardelli. It calls for ⅓ cup water, ⅓ cup oil and 1 egg. Instead of using all ⅓ water I placed 2 tbsp of Kahlua in the ⅓ measuring cup and then topped it off with water.
  2. You can also poke holes in the brownie with a toothpick when it comes out of the oven and pour another 1 tbsp of Kahlua over top to soak in.
