Gluten-Free Hot Fudge Brownie Sundaes

This simple and easy hot fudge brownie sundae recipe is gluten-free! It is made with the best homemade fudgy brownies, hot fudge, and vanilla ice cream!

I had a birthday over the summer. I turned 37, which seems like a big old nothing birthday because it's just in the middle of the thirties and no big deal at all. But anyway, Joe and the girls made one of my favorite desserts just for me, and so I enjoyed my special night.

They made me a big brownie sundae and of course it had smooth, rich hot fudge drizzled over top. Is there a dessert that screams “comfort food” more than that? I can't think of one.

Unfortunately, the hot gooey-ness of the hot fudge combined with the crisp freeze of the ice cream made my teeth scream out in pain.  It first started happening when I was a teen, and my dentist at the time recommended that I switch to Sensodyne®  toothpaste.

I did switch, and I have used Sensodyne®  twice daily ever since. (If you're a longtime reader, you might remember that I switched for a campaign a few years ago, but I quickly switched back.)

Thanks to Sensodyne® Repair & Protect, I can now enjoy this delicious dessert without the sensitivity twinge!

So in the spirit of my love for Sensodyne®, I have a recipe to share with you for my special birthday dessert, the hot fudge brownie sundae. The first step is to prepare the hot fudge.

You want it to be hot but not boiling hot, so make it first and let it cool off while you prepare the brownies.

Instructions
  1. Combine butter, cocoa, sugar, and evaporated milk in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Heat mixture until boiling. Continue to boil for 7 minutes.
  3. After 7 minutes, remove from heat and immediately stir in chocolate chips and vanilla. The chocolate chips should melt and the mixture should be smooth.
  4. If your hot fudge sauce is lumpy, you can put it in the blender for a couple of minutes, but I didn't find that to be necessary.

The next step is to make the brownies.

Gluten-Free Fudge Brownies Recipe
Servings
Ingredients
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour (Buckwheat is not related to wheat at all, and buckwheat is naturally gluten-free. However, this particular brand is not produced in a gluten-free facility and could irritate the strictest gluten-free diets. I don't have any trouble with it, but use caution if you are very strictly gluten-free.)
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder Hershey's Special Dark
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter unsalted, melted
  • 2 tablespoons butter unsalted, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 eggs large, room temperature
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips divided

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 eggs large, room temperature
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips divided
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper to make it easier to remove the brownies when they're finished.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
  4. In a larger mixing bowl, stir together the melted butter, sugar, and vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time and stir until just incorporated.
  5. The next step is important! Well really, all the steps are important, but make sure you are careful on this one. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir only until the flour is worked in. Don't overmix!
  6. Carefully and gently, fold in 3/4 cup of chocolate chips.
  7. Pour the batter into the 8x8 pan and sprinkle the last 1/4 cup of chocolate chips on top.
  8. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. A toothpick poked into the CENTER should come out WET, but a toothpick along the edge should not.

Let both the brownies and hot fudge cool for about an hour. Hot fudge brownie sundaes are wonderful with hot brownies, but if you take gluten-free brownies out of the pan too soon, they basically turn to mush. You need whole brownies for the sundae part to make sense.

So take the slightly warm brownie out of the pan and place it into a bowl. Cut it in half so that the ice cream can sink down in between the pieces.

Add a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream on top of the brownie, and drizzle generously with hot fudge sauce. If you're feeling extra fancy, add some whipped cream and a maraschino cherry on top.

That's it. You have a hot fudge brownie sundae, and it only took you half of the afternoon to make it.

I kid. It's not that involved.

Back to Sensodyne®.

Sensodyne® is the #1 dentist recommended brand for sensitive teeth. All Sensodyne® toothpaste formulations include a clinically proven ingredient that works to help relieve tooth pain due to sensitive teeth, when the product is used as directed*.

A lot of people seem to think that they only need to use Sensodyne® Repair & Protect when they have a sensitivity flare up, but that is really not the case.  It combines the ability to manage tooth sensitivity with the benefits of an everyday toothpaste. It's a win-win.  

If eating a hot fudge brownie sundae makes you cringe, you might want to try Sensodyne® Repair & Protect toothpaste and use it twice daily for effective and lasting relief for sensitive teeth*!

  1. I use Biotene toothpaste. A dentist recommended it because I tend to have a bit of dry mouth that has led to some dental problems. Since I stated using it things are so much better.

  2. I usually use Crest Pro Health, as long as its on sale. But I do have sensitive teeth and should consider switching to Sensodyne.

  3. I use a super expensive kind that I buy directly from my dentist that supposedly helps the enamel on my teeth. I haven’t had any cavities so it seems to be working!

  4. I like to use Crest or Colgate toothpaste. I like the ones that have a really minty flavor and make my teeth feel clean. It’s also really important to floss!

  5. Right now I’m using Crest 3D White toothpaste. I like the taste and it has brightened my teeth a bit. However, I’ve just started to notice some sensitivity in the back right of my teeth. The dentist said there was nothing there, they were just sensitive. I’ll have to give this a try for sure!

    Thanks!

  6. I actually use Sensodyne!! I have sensitive teeth myself and it’s helped me to be able to drink things I couldn’t before. I love ice cold water and before sensodyne it was never an option.

  7. Honestly, I use whatever is the cheapest right now! I am out of work…so ya know! haha I’m doing ok, but when I get a job, I plan on trying Sensodyne! It sounds like it works great! I need it so much. I am a little tired of closing my eyes and holding my breath if I take a bite of something cold! Happy New Year to everyone!

  8. I use kids crest sparkle fun. because my silly husband doesn’t like mint or cinnamon! That was a shocker on our honeymoon when he busted out kids toothpaste.

  9. My go to toothpaste is Crest 3D White Luxe. I have just started using this a few months ago, and it seems to be working pretty good.

  10. I use what is on sale that week…but I do have a sensitive tooth. I really need to switch and try this! I would love to have some relief!

  11. The kids use Crest toothpaste and we use Sensodyne. I have very sensitive teeth. I have been using it since I was a teenager.

  12. I regularly use AIM but I always have a tube of Sensodyne® in my bathroom for flare ups. I swear by it and I know it has saved me a few trips to the dentist! After reading this post, I may just start using it everyday, to prevent them from ever happening in the first place!

  13. When I was a little girl I spent a lot of time with my Grandparents. So now as an adult I use a lot of products that they used. It kind of reminds me of being home. One of those items that I use is Crest cavity protection tooth paste. I also keep sensodyne on hand for flare ups. It works really good and seems to help even if I don’t use it all the time.

  14. I alternate between Colgate and Sensodyne. I like the flavor and the lather of the Colgate better but when my teeth get sensitive, I have to use the sensodyne.

  15. I’m currently using Colgate Daily Repair but I’m almost finished and think I’ll give the Sensodyne Repair and Protect toothpaste a try.

  16. I normally use Crest. The kind varies. I haven’t been able to find a toothpaste I’m satisfied with, especially now while I’m pregnant!

  17. My dentist recommended Sensodyne and I highly agree that it is very effective!
    It helps me with hot and cold drinks, food and also sweets.
    It is also great for small aches and twinges.
