Make a Fancy Ice Cream Sundae

Do you love an ice cream sundae as much as we do? One of the best things about a sundae is that you can customize it to make it all your own! From choosing your favorite sauces, toppings and even ice cream flavors, the options are truly endless (and delicious!).  

We put a spin on the classic ice cream sundae to make it, well, fancy! In this recipe, we used Madagascar Vanilla as the base—extra indulgent Madagascar vanilla ice cream with a hint of sea salt. This flavor pairs perfectly with the wonderfully sweet taste of strawberry sauce, layered throughout.    

To top things off, we added whipped cream (of course), sprinkles and a cherry. Brightly colored lollipops and a sparkler complete this creation, because there’s no such thing as a sundae that’s too overdressed.

Grab a clear, tall sundae dish that will show off the layers of your fancy ice cream sundae! Add about a tablespoon of strawberry topping to the bottom of your dish.  

Step 2: Time to layer 

Add a generous amount of Madagascar Vanilla ice cream and continue to layer ice cream and strawberry topping until your sundae glass is filled. Be sure to add a healthy scoop to the top of your glass (because the more ice cream, the better, right?).
