Grab your fixings and get ready to celebrate because the third Sunday in July is Sundae Sunday, which falls on July 18th this year. The Sundae is an American icon that is well known for its indulgence and ingenuity. No dessert could be simpler, messier or more irresistible. It’s a scoop of ice cream, your choice of sweet topping, maybe a couple of extras, whipped cream and a cherry on top. The Swensen’s ice cream parlor in our town had the most amazing Sundae called the Chocolate Crunch that I would get (very) often as a kid. Ah, what sweet memories.
Make your house into a Swensen’s. Bring a group of friends and family together for a Sundae Sunday party. Here are some things you’ll want to have handy to make your Sundae party a sweet success:
- Bowls or cups
Scooper for the ice cream
- Ice cream – Chocolate, Rocky Road, Mint Chocolate Chip, Chocolate PB Cup
Sauce – Fudge, caramel, strawberry, chocolate
Candy toppings – Heath bar, M&Ms, Butterfinger
Fruit – Banana, pineapple
Chopped chocolate, nuts, coffee beans, nibs or coconut
Wafer cookies or cones
Build your Sundae
In a bowl or cup, place one scoop of ice cream (allow 1 scoop per serving). Drizzle with sauce of choice. Add one or several toppings, whipped cream and top with cherry. Enjoy!
Remember, there is no right or wrong way to make a Sundae so have a great time making your Sundae creation. My Sundae would definitely have brownie, ice cream…oh, this is too hard to decide! I’ll have to make a few small(ish) Sundaes to make it all work. Make sure to order your chocolate from Drexelius Chocolates to make your Sundae options complete. Happy Sundae!
