  • Place the flour blend, xantham gum, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and granulated sugar in a bowl and begin to whisk.
  • Add the brown sugar and continue to whisk till there are no traces of lumps left.
  • Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the butter, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon of milk. Mix after adding each ingredient.
  • It's time to knead the dough. Do this with your hands and add more milk as much as you need for the dough to stick together without crumbling.
  • After this, break off small pieces of brownie dough and roll tightly into balls about 1/2-inch in diameter.

  • Pour the sweetened condensed milk, the cool chocolate syrup, vanilla, and salt into a bowl. Mix well.
  •  With the mixer on low speed, add the chocolate syrup mixture in a slow, steady stream.
  • Whip until the mixture forms a  uniform color.
  • Pour the ice cream into a 2-quart freezer-safe container with a lid.
  • Also, add the brownie dough chunks. After this, fold carefully to avoid delaying the ice cream.
  • Smoothen the top and cover tightly with the lid.
  • Place in the freezer to get frozen
  • After four 4 hours, you can serve directly from the freezer.
