Chocolate Sundae

Summer is right around the corner and the mercury is shooting up. Schools are out and the kids are enjoying their new found down time. The afternoons are so hot, everyone is looking for something to cool down with. Ice cream fits the bill perfectly. It is even better if the ice cream is decorated with chocolate sauce and whipped cream. That brings me to this sundae. It is easy to put together. You can make your own chocolate sauce like I did or use store bought sauce. You can whip up the whipped cream or buy it at the store. A few crushed nuts on the top add a nice crunch.


The other day I asked my husband to get a small tub of ice cream to make some ice cream soda. He bought two large tubs. He had a pretty good reason for buying so much ice cream but I cannot remember what it was. You cannot return ice cream so I had to use up the two tubs. As a treat my family got to eat some new and old favorites with ice cream. Watch this space for more.

You will need
2 scoops vanilla ice cream
1 tbsp. or more chocolate sauce
whipped cream as needed or whip heavy whipping cream
chopped peanuts
maraschino cherry (optional)

To assemble: If using heavy whipping cream whip it until light and fluffy just before using it. Scoop the ice cream in a bowl. Add the whipped cream. Pour chocolate sauce. Garnish with nuts and a cherry.


Enjoy!
