If you ask me, ice cream does not have a “season”. You can eat it all year long. I don’t care if it’s winter, I’m still gonna eat it. It’s even better when it is homemade. I love a decadent sundae the best. And with all the fixings. I like the hot fudge and nuts and sprinkles and cherry and whipped cream. Some people prefer butterscotch sauce, but I dislike it. I do like caramel sauce, though. However, I only like it when it has chocolate fudge with it. Any ice cream flavor will do, but mint chocolate chip is my favorite.
Chocolate Whipped Cream Sundae
1 half gallon of your favorite ice cream
jar of chocolate fudge
1 cup of nuts
chocolate whipped cream (recipe below)
four maraschino cherries
Put two to three scoops of ice cream into four bowls. Heat the chocolate fudge for about thirty seconds in the microwave and drizzle a couple spoonfuls over each bowl of ice cream. If you want to add caramel or butterscotch as well, by all means do. Chop the nuts and sprinkle between the bowls evenly. Divide the whipped cream between the bowls evenly as well. Sprinkle as much of the sprinkles as preferred over all of them and top with a cherry.
Chocolate Whipped Cream
1/2 pint heavy cream
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup sugar
Chill a large metal bowl for at least 30 minutes. Then pour in heavy cream. Add in cocoa powder and sugar. Whip it until it is stiff. (This will be a great arm workout.) Be careful not to whip it too much because it will churn and turn into butter. Chocolate butter does not taste good. You can tell it does this when it starts to get lightly lumpy. You only want to whip to the point that when you lift the whisk out of the bowl the whipped cream pulls to a peak out of it and stays as a peak.
