  • Place ice cream in a chilled medium bowl. Working quickly, stir ice cream to soften; fold in coffee crystals. Spread ice cream evenly over brownie. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 8 hours or until very firm.

  • For raspberry sauce, in a small saucepan combine the thawed berries, sugar (if using) and cornstarch. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in sugar substitute, if using in replace of sugar. Cool, cover and chill until ready to use.

  • To serve, remove sides of the springform pan. Cut the ice cream-topped brownie into 12 wedges (see Tip). Top each wedge with raspberry sauce. If desired, drizzle with chocolate syrup and garnish with fresh raspberries.
