Cheesecake Ice Cream Sundae

Sharing is caring!

Do you need a new dessert idea? Today I’m sharing with you a recipe that looks and tastes elaborate, but it’s surprisingly simple and takes a short amount of time to make.




Because I have two teenagers, I have a rotating front door – kids are in and out constantly. I’m also constantly feeding all of them! I also have a husband with a HUGE sweet tooth.

Especially when it comes to desserts, time saving is key because I cook so much as it is and there’s never enough time in the day. However, I don’t want to sacrifice deliciousness.

I recently made this fantastic ice cream sundae that is both easy and a time saver. I used Sara Lee® frozen cheesecake and Hershey’s® chocolate syrup to make this rockstar dessert.


Because my husband is originally a New Yorker, I went with his favorite style of cheesecake – New York Style, obviously. I simply used 1/2 of the cheesecake and added it to my regular vanilla homemade ice cream recipe. I topped it with Hershey’s chocolate syrup, of course, some whipped cream, sprinkles and a cherry. 


It really doesn’t take much time at all. Sara Lee and Hershey’s both have multiple varieties, and easy to find at Publix (where I definitely spend a lot of my time).

    Wow, Shea! This is wonderful! I saw a can (yes, a can) of Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup at the store the other day. I was this close to buying it just to wax nostalgic. I’ll be picking up that Sara Lee New York-style Cheesecake and my free Hershey’s syrup tomorrow! And yes, I’ll be making this awesome recipe. Thank you!
