10 DIY ice cream sundaes
Perf peanut butter cup – Leave chocolate ice cream out to soften. When it’s easy to work with, use a spoon to swirl in peanut butter. Scoop into a bowl, then top with crumbled Reese’s peanut butter cups.
Rad rainbow – Grab small scoops of a variety of different-colored sorbets. Toss in sliced strawberries, blueberries, raspberries—whatever fruit you like—for a refreshing treat.
Ice-cold s’mores – Pile vanilla bean ice cream high in a bowl. Top with steamy hot fudge, crumbled graham crackers and mini marshmallows.
Shirley Temple Twist – For a new take on a Shirley Temple, add a scoop of black cherry ice cream to a tall, empty glass. Pour sprite or ginger ale over the ice cream and top with cherries.
Mocha-chip madness – Add a scoop of coffee ice cream and a scoop of chocolate ice cream to a bowl. In a saucepan, heat store-bought hot fudge ice cream topping. Mix in 1/8 teaspoon of ground coffee per serving. Drizzle over ice cream and top with chocolate chunks.
Cookie monster – Bake or buy some giant chocolate chip cookies. Lay ‘em out on a plate, drop a scoop of softened cookies ‘n’ cream ice cream on one and push the two together. For a cutesy finish, roll the edges in rainbow sprinkles.
Piña colada cooler – Two scoops pineapple sorbet followed by a sprinkle of shaved coconut and a flashy paper umbrella.
Ultimate brownie sundae – Warm a homemade brownie in the microwave for 25 to 30 seconds. Top immediately with good vanilla ice cream and pipin’ hot fudge. A drizzle of caramel ice cream topping, a sprinkle of crushed nuts, a dollop of whipped cream and a cherry are all tasty, but optional.
Strawberry shortcake – Layer French vanilla ice cream, fresh strawberries, store-bought pound cake or angelfood cake, and whipped cream for a dainty, delicious parfait sundae.
Choconut bliss – Top several scoops of chocolate ice cream with warm Nutella hazelnut spread, heated in a saucepan over the stove or in the microwave in a heat-proof bowl. Sprinkle your favorite smashed nuts and mini chocolate chips over top, and dig in.
