Dark Chocolate Brownie Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream

The theme for February's Dessert Wars is hearts and dark chocolate. Valentine's Day is one of my favorite holidays so I was really excited for this theme. My hubby and I went to Disneyland on Valentine's Day so I made this dessert the night before. It was so delicious and we ate until our stomachs hurt.
I adapted the Barefoot Contessa's Outrageous Brownie recipe for the use of dark chocolate and then cut a heart into the middle of the cake and filled it with vanilla ice cream. so so yummy.
