One of the joys of a childhood summer are sparklers. My boys look forward to that time of day when the sun has set and they can light the world on fire... figuratively speaking, of course! Influenced heavily by a few images I had saved onto to my Pinterest board, I thought it would be fun to add some sparkle to my kids' dessert. What could make a warm brownie a la mode even sweeter? The magic and glow of a sparkler, of course! Sparklers truly make those spectacular summer nights even more memorable.
To make your Sparkling Warm Brownie a la Mode you will need:
1 brownies cut into a circle shape to fit the bottom of the glass
2-4 scoops of vanilla (or your favorite) ice cream placed on top of the warm brownie
Optional: Hot fudge, caramel or butterscotch sauce drizzled over ice cream
2 sparklers placed into the center of the ice cream, anchored by the brownie
Serves 2 - Double recipe if needed
