Brownie waffles with homemade vanilla custard ice cream.

I placed the brownie batter in the waffle iron to try to make dessert quickly. This might work if you only needed 1 or 2, but I think 6 took just as long as baking them.

Vanilla custard ice cream

1 cup half-and-half cream
2/3 cup sugar
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a heavy saucepan, combine first three ingredients. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Cool. Pour into chilled ice cube trays without dividers or a shallow pan. Freeze to a mush (do not freeze hard). Whip cream; add vanilla and salt. Fold into partially frozen mixture. Return to trays or pan and freeze.

*I skipped the whole ice cube try part and just added the whipped cream to the custard mixture after it had cooled. Then I used my ice cream maker.
