I was recently asked by The J.M. Smucker Company to create a unique ice cream sundae for using their products and I wanted to share with you. #sundaefundae #ad
It’s SO hot – Summertime is definitely not over!
When it’s summer, we regularly go swimming, lay by the pool and have backyard cookouts. One of the things my kids have always loved in the summer after being in the sun all day is making ice cream sundaes (especially with homemade ice cream). Smuckers® has a full line of ice cream toppings, so the sundae possibilities are endless.
My daughter recently asked me to make a full-fledged sundae bar complete with my homemade Marshmallow ice cream. I have a very hard time saying “no” to anyone asking me to do something food related – It’s a severe weakness.
So, of course, I put one together – I don’t think we’ve actually made one before, surprisingly. She had a friend over that day, and after a full afternoon of being in the sun, they were ready for some ice cream to cool them off.
We were also hit with a typical Southern storm that afternoon, so what better excuse to come inside and make some sundaes??
The girls made sundaes with Smuckers® Chocolate Sundae Syrup, Strawberry Sundae Syrup as well as their Butterscotch Sundae Syrup.
They had lots of fun using their creativity. The toppings included mini chocolate candies, mini peanut butter chocolate candies, crushed pecans, crushed pretzels, sprinkles, maraschino cherries and whipped cream.
Needless to say, they had fun, and made some fantastic sundaes.
One of the syrups that stood out to me (and I knew I had to try) was the Chocolate and Pretzel Magic Shell Ice Cream Topping. I’m not the biggest dessert fan, but when I do eat sweets I love a good sweet and salty combination.
Isn’t she pretty??
This sundae consists of warm fudge brownies layered with homemade marshmallow ice cream, both chocolate pretzel and strawberry syrups, whipped cream, salted pretzels, sprinkles topped off with a cherry.
In a pretty jar.
Look for the #sundaefundae hashtag for more inspiration!
