The ice cream sundae is a popular American dessert. Our ice cream sundae, with chocolate and caramel, is easy to make and looks amazing. A delicious, sweet treat of rich ice cream, swirled with sauce and nuts, served in an authentic glass sundae cup..
The main thing:
Making an ice cream sundae is not difficult at all. You can make all the elements yourself, or choose to use ready-made sauces and ice cream. You can whip your own cream, or use a can of squirty cream.
If you want to make your own vanilla ice cream, the sundae will be even tastier, although that's actually difficult to believe because this ice cream sundae is already mouthwateringly delicious!
Making chocolate sauce is really simple. Heat double/heavy cream in a small saucepan and add the same quantity of chocolate, broken into pieces. For example, 100 ml cream + 100 g (dark) chocolate. Just stir until it forms a smooth sauce; that's all there is to it.

Make your chocolate sauce and caramel sauce first, unless you are using ready-made, and let them both cool a little.
If you intend to whip your own cream, do that next and, if desired, sweeten the cream with a little (icing) sugar.
Make layers in 2 large sundae glasses of scoops of vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce and nougatine nuts.
Finish with a generous dollop of whipped cream and garnish with more nougatine nuts, sugar sprinkles, a cocktail cherry and a wafer curl. Enjoy!
