Shot Glass Brownie Sundaes

by jerseygirl on June 8, 2011 · 25 comments


I started off the day eating these brownie sundaes for breakfast. I am not kidding. It was such a sunny day out and I had to be at work at 10am. So in order to get pictures during daylight, a blogger has to do what a blogger has to do. So today I ate ice cream at 9AM. It was so hot out, that ice cream was the perfect thing to eat anyway.

You’ve probably noticed that in every restaurant, shot glass desserts are the latest craze. So why not do sundaes in shot glasses? These sundaes are perfect party fare and you can mix and match ingredients. I used cut up brownies and mint chocolate chip ice cream in half and cookie dough ice cream in the others. The possibilities are endless. You could also use chocolate chip cookies, bananas, pound cake or chopped candy bars. Just make sure you cut the brownies, cookies, bananas or whatever you use into small pieces. My other advice is to spoon the ice cream with a small cookie scoop. This will give you nice small scoops which fit perfectly in the shot glass. If you’re making these for a party, you can make them in advance and keep them in the freezer. Just wait until the last minute to top them with whipped cream and the cherry. My last advice is to make sure you eat more than one!

LOL! Yes, a blogger has to do what a blogger has to do! Love that they are small portions, so you can indulge at any hour of the day!

Sadly I have not had a shot glass dessert yet! I need to get out more.

These look delicious – even at 9am. 🙂

Ice cream at 9 am sounds good…..

Except for the fact that my evil washing machine and dryer shrunk my jeans again. Now because of the demented appliances in my laundry room – I am being FORCED to think about that 4 letter word I hate so much. D-I-E-T. Woe is me.

Love this idea. But my shot glasses are so small, they'd give you such a teensy portion. I am in search of bigger shot glasses – and ice cream for breakfast.

sundaes for breakfast sounds fine – I mean, it has milk in it, right?

I think this is an awesome idea, and I'm glad I'm not the only one who eats strange things for breakfast because of their blog!

ANy excuse to have ice cream for breakfast is good by me. They look delicious, shot glasses lead a certain elegance to it all, ironically!

These look awesome! I have yet to make my own in a shot glass like this, but my friend made some cute brownie bite ones over the holidays to bring to a party. Yum!
