Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease and flour the underside of a muffin pan.
  2. Combine cake mix and flour in large bowl. Stir in oil, eggs and water with wooden spoon until blended. Dough will be stiff.
  3. Roll dough out 1/8 to ¼-inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Cut out dough using a 5-inch round cookie cutter or small bowl. Arrange on underside of prepared pan, creating a bowl shape. (Muffin pan sizes may be different, adjust size of cookie cutter according to your muffin pan.)
  4. Bake 11 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on pan. (Thicker dough will result in sturdier cookie bowls.)
  5. Combine contents of small pouch, 1/3 cup water and melted butter in medium bowl.
  6. Place a scoop of ice cream into each Cookie Bowl. Add a spoonful of the small pouch mixture and a spoonful of Cherry Fruit Topper.
  7. Baking Tip: Substitute cocoa powder for flour when greasing the pan.

Tap them smooth

Tap them smooth

Once you have spread your brownie batter in the pan it is a good idea to tap the brownie pan on the counter a few times. it releases the air bubbles and spreads the batter out evenly. brownies cook more evenly.

Heavy Cream

Heavy Cream

When whipping heavy cream for any recipe, I chill the bowl I am going to use and the beaters in the refrigerator for at least an hour. This will help to firm up the heavy cream.
