So I did.
This is what I did:
1 box brownie mix - follow box directions to make brownies, or make your own from scratch - let cool.
On a large plate, scoop up lots of vanilla ice cream into the centre of the plate. Slice your brownies length-wise and form a pyramid over the ice cream. Spray whipped cream 'lava' down each of the brownie sides. Drizzle more 'lava' in the form of chocolate and caramel sauce (heated if possible). Stick a sparkler in the top, light it and call out "Vooooolllllccaaaannnnoooo!" as you carry it out to the guest of honour. Bring lots of forks, this is a lot of dessert, a must share (and then plenty left over).
BTW - my oldest boy thought this was fabulous and loved making it for his dad. My DH thought it was ingenious.
*I don't know why it looks like there were 2 sparklers in the picture above, there really was just one.
This is me being goofy just outside the Rainforest Cafe. I'm supposed to be looking scared of the big snake in the tree, but it looks like I'm being scared of the silly frog instead.
