Sundae Ice Cream Party Recipes Sundae Recipes To Die For! My family always look forward to summer when we make a sundae on those hot afternoons or better still lots sundaes. Summertime just wouldn’t be the same without this frosty treat. So, Why not try something a little different this year and throw an ice cream party. The essential ingredients for a sundae are ice cream, dessert syrups and different flavored sauces with whipped cream and maraschino cherry toppings. Or you can try gourmet sundaes using ingredients like, maple cream, hot fudge or caramel sauce, semi-sweet or dark chocolate, with different types of ice cream served with wafers and topped off with pistachio nuts and sprinkles to taste. Wow your guests with these recipes for classic or traditional French Sundaes. The original sundae has vanilla ice cream topped with a flavored sauce or syrup, whipped cream, and a maraschino cherry. These classic sundaes are named after the flavored syrup employed in the recipe for example chocolate sundae, strawberry sundae, raspberry sundae. The sundae is traditionally served in a tulip-shaped, footed glass vase. This style of serving dish is generally now known as a sundae glass because of the long association between the shape of the glass and the dessert. Sliced or chopped fruit that has been pre-sugared and allowed to stand for a few hours to form sweet syrup is often substituted for the flavoured sauce or syrup of these classic sundae. These variations such as the strawberry, peach, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, and mixed fruit sundae are very popular and generally served during the summer months. The popular combination of vanilla ice cream, hot fudge and hot caramel sauces, and toasted pecans is known as a turtle sundae after a popular candy called a turtle, consisting of pecans covered with caramel chocolate. The classic banana split has chocolate ice cream topped with crushed pineapple, strawberry ice cream topped with chocolate syrup, and vanilla ice cream topped with strawberry syrup. Each scoop is should be garnished with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry. Heated sauce sundaes are those where the flavored sauce or syrup is heated up and then poured over the ice cream. The hot fudge sundae is a creation of vanilla ice cream, sprinkles, hot chocolate sauce (hence the “hot fudge”), whipped cream, nuts, and a single bright-red maraschino cherry on top. Yummy!! French ice cream sundaes might include any combination of flavors, syrups, nuts and even alcohol. There are no limits. If you visit an ice cream parlor (glacier) in France you are quite likely to find some of these on the menu
