    ok - so below I will post the version of the recipe that I have. But it doesn't tell me HOW MUCH ice cream to use? Can anyone help me? I wanted to make this recipe this afternoon and I can't find the Recipe Search on the US website (I am a CDN Consultant).

    Molten Chocolate Skillet Brownie

    1 package (19-21 ounces) fudge brownie mix (plus ingredients to make cake-like brownies)
    1 bar (4 ounces) fine-quality bittersweet chocolate
    2 cups water
    1 jar (12 ounces) chocolate fudge ice cream topping
    1/2 teaspoon Pantry Double Strength Vanilla
    1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted and coarsely chopped
    Powdered sugar
    Vanilla ice cream or thawed, frozen whipped topping (optional)
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray bottom of Family (12-in.) Skillet with nonstick cooking spray. In Classic Batter Bowl, prepare brownie mix according to package directions for cake-like brownies. Spread batter over bottom of skillet. Cut chocolate into small pieces. Sprinkle chocolate evenly over batter.

    Combine water and ice cream topping in Large Micro-Cooker(R); whisk until well blended. Microwave, covered, on HIGH 5-6 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil. Whisk until blended; stir in vanilla. (Mixture will be thin.) Carefully pour ice cream topping mixture over brownie batter in a circular pattern.

    Bake, uncovered, 35-40 minutes or until sauce is bubbling around edges. (Top of brownie will appear very saucy, but will thicken as it cools.) Carefully remove skillet from oven to Cooling Rack.

    Coarsely chop almonds using Food Chopper; sprinkle evenly over brownie. Lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar using Flour/Sugar Shaker. Spoon brownie into Simple Additions(R) Small Bowls using Nylon Spoon and serve warm with ice cream or whipped topping, if desired.

    Yield: 16 servings

    Cook's Tip: To toast almonds in the microwave oven, place almonds in Small Oval Baker; microwave on HIGH 5-7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring after each 30-second interval. Cool completely.
    If desired, 1 teaspoon vanilla can be substituted for the Double Strength Vanilla.
    If desired, 4 squares (1 ounce each) bittersweet baking chocolate or 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels can be substituted for the bittersweet chocolate bar

    The vanilla ice cream is just an optional addition.
