walnut brownie sundae ingredient list

  • your favorite boxed brownie mix. Our favorite is the King Arthur brownie mix. You will also need the ingredients to make the brownies as you normally would (typically an egg, water, and oil).
  • chopped walnuts
  • dairy free vanilla ice cream. So Delicious and Nada Moo! are excellent brands for this recipe.
  • Ah!Laska chocolate syrup. This lasts for months once opened and refrigerated.
  • a cherry or two for the top
  • an 8" oven safe skillet or cast iron pan. A 9 x 9 baking dish will work well too. If you're interested in purchasing a cast iron skillet, I would recommend this one here from Lodge. We use it when camping and for several other blog recipes.

Isn't that the easiest homemade dessert ingredient list? And, to emphasize, everyone will love this skillet flavor combo. You won't believe it's gluten and dairy free.
