How to Make an Ice Cream Sundae Like a Champion

It is no secret that Americans love their ice cream. In fact, in any given two-week period, 40% of Americans will eat ice cream. And what is the kind of all frozen desserts? The ice cream sundae.

But, what many ice cream aficionados don't understand is that there is a special recipe that makes all ice cream sundaes magical. Want to know the details? We've listed them out for you.

The first ingredient: the bowl
An ice cream sundae is only as good as its bowl.  Dessert cups are often overlooked, but one thing is for certain: they must be sturdy to hold all the toppings your heart desires! Our tip for you? Get a nice deep bowl with a thick lip around the edge that will catch any drips.

The base: the ice cream
While gelato and frozen yogurt sundaes can be all the rage, we understand that sometimes you just have a hankering for creamy ice cream. When choosing your ice cream, go ahead and get creative -- want chocolate and mint? Or how about peanut butter and strawberry? Cheesecake and red velvet? The extraordinary combination of flavors of your ice cream sundae starts here, so pack as many flavors in your bowl as you'd like.

The best part: the toppings
Here is really where you can get wild. There is no such thing as too many toppings for your ice cream sundae, so go with whatever your heart tells you. Want gummy bears AND sprinkles? Treat yourself. How about brownies and nuts? Even better. Peanut butter cups and Oreos? Watch out, here comes a flavor explosion!

The fourth step: getting saucy with it
Your topping extravaganza doesn't end with the candy toppings. After all, you can't forget the luscious hot fudge, caramel sauce, or melted peanut butter. Think of these as only enhancing your flavor experience.

The final step: finish off with a squirt of whipped cream
After all, what is a dessert without a cherry on top? A disgrace.

With these tips in mind, you are set to make the best ice cream sundae of your life. And don't worry, we won't tell your secrets.
