Ice cream sundaes are a classic dessert that nearly everyone can enjoy. Sundaes are fun and easy to put together too. To make a great sundae, all you need is ice cream, your favorite toppings, and some creativity. The following five steps will help you make the perfect ice cream sundaes any day of the week.
Choose your serving bowls
Your ice cream sundae will be enjoyable in whatever container you choose. Usually, ice cream sundaes are served in round dishes, plastic cups, or tulip sundae glasses. If you want to make a banana split, consider using a long, oval shaped container. Whatever the case, have fun with your serving ware and don’t be afraid to get creative.
Create a sundae base
Put two to three scoops of an ice cream of your choice on the bottom of your dish. Vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry flavors are tasty classics choices for a sundae. Although these favorite flavors are traditionally used for this dessert, don’t be afraid to try something new. After your base has been placed, your sundae will be ready for sauce and toppings.
Drizzle your sauce
A classic ice cream sundae is bound to include melted hot fudge, caramel, or strawberry drizzle. It is best to warm these sauces before you put them onto your treat because they will come out easily when warm. Use a spoon to scoop sauce or buy a sauce that comes in a squeezable container to make this step easier.
Add some toppings
There are dozens of topping options to choose from. You can use just about anything your heart desires. Common toppings include chopped nuts, sprinkles, candies, marshmallows, and shredded coconut. Whatever you have around the house will likely work, such as chocolate chips, sliced fruit, or gummy bears. You may consider crushing up some of your favorite candy and adding it to your sundae as well.
A traditional ice cream sundae would not be complete without some whipped cream added to the top. Spray the whipped cream into a nice spiral on top of your treat. After you place your whipped cream, add a maraschino cherry on top as a finishing touch.
