My Guilty Pleasure #4: Popcorn and Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream Sundae

Just to let you know, this post was written before I started the paleo diet to help ease my psoriasis. Nowadays I eat a more allergy-friendly diet, but leave these older, non-paleo posts up in case they are useful to readers, as I know not everyone eats the same as I do. Thanks for your understanding. 

Here it is... one of my guilty pleasures. Looks good, doesn't it?

I've been known to get down to TGI Friday's with the pretence of fancying a burger just to have their version of this for pudding afterwards. But that became a bit too expensive (and time and calorie-consuming) and now I skip the burger completely (and the trip) and make it at home.

All you do is just cut up a few chocolate brownie squares into bite-sized pieces (extra points given if the brownie is home-made and still warm), top that with a scoop of really good vanilla ice cream and scatter over some crisp, toffee-coated popcorn. Then you just drizzle over some (shop-bought) toffee sauce and some squirty cream. Yes, it's dirty. But sometimes that's what you need.

 What's your favourite 'guilty pleasure' dessert?


  1. So this is actually your own version? Ahhh!
    It looks so good.
    I was very jealous, as I went to TGI's and had the popcorn sundae and was disapointed as it didn't look like this, it was rather a let down, so was jealous of your amazing looking one. And yet its home made! Well, I suppose that makes me even more jealous at your dessert making skills! :) I shall be trying this out now. Thanks x
