Ice Cream-Sundae Dark Chocolate Brownies

According to About.com (Inventors) this is what they had to say about the “History of the Ice Cream Sundae”, “In the mid-western parts of the  United States, laws were once passed that prohibited the selling of soda water on a Sunday. The town of Evanston, Illinois was one of the first town to pass such a law around the year 1890. As an alternative on Sundays, local soda fountains started selling ice cream sodas minus the soda, which left only the ice cream and syrup. That became the recipe of what was to become know known as the “ice cream sundae.”

It is written in the history books that ice cream can be traced back to at least the 4th century B.C. The Roman emperor Nero ( AD 37-68) ordered ice to be brought from the mountains and to be combined with fruit toppings.

The first ice cream maker was invented by Nancy Johnson in 1846. She patented her hand cranked freezer that established the basic method of making ice cream still used today.

Wikipedia says the first baked brownies came out of the oven in 1904. This is the earliest a brownie recipe, and appeared in a cook book, called “Home Cookery.

Since those inventions appeared on the scene,we now have an ice cream sundae brownies. Much like peanut butter and chocolate that came together back in the last half of the 20th century as Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
