1 egg
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Chocolate Sauce Ingredients

1 cup water
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/4 cup granulated (white) sugar

In a large bowl, beat egg, brown sugar, vanilla and salt until blended. Stir in chocolate mixture. Gradually add flour until well blended. Spread batter evenly into pan (batter will be thin).

Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire cooling rack. Cover and chill until firm.

Using a 3 1/2 x 3-1/2-inch heart pattern or cookie cutter, mark four hearts on surface of brownies; cut with a knife. Spread ice cream on two hearts; top each with a second heart. Wrap in plastic wrap; freeze in a single layer overnight.

For chocolate sauce, in a small saucepan, combine the water, cocoa and sugar; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer for 2 to 3 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in butter until melted.

To serve, dust brownie hearts with confectioners' sugar and drizzle with warm chocolate sauce.
