Tips for Creating the Perfect Brownie Sundae

As the summer slowly starts coming to a close, I wanted to share a great ice cream recipe that I've been making a lot for guests this summer.  It's been brutally hot here in New England lately and I can't think of a better way to beat the heat than with a fabulous brownie sundae!

To start with, you'll need a fabulous parfait glass to make your sundae in. I actually have a set of old parfait glasses that were purchased from an estate sale of someone who used to work at a soda shop in the 1950's.  I love that they're authentic and would have been done excellently for being used for ice cream sundaes at that time.

The key to a fabulous brownie sundae is layering.  In my opinion, you can't just have a ton of ice cream and then a brownie on top, it doesn't work like that.  You need to taste brownie in each and every bite to make it successful.

I like to put a couple brownie crumbs on the bottom of the glass before I put the first scoop of vanilla in.  I don't like to use any other ice cream flavor but vanilla.  I feel that it's best to keep it simple when making the sundaes, and vanilla is as simple and classic as it comes. Next, I put a thin layer of hot fudge and some brownie pieces inside the glass.  Another small scoop of vanilla comes next along with more brownie.  Go ahead and add more hot fudge too because who doesn't love it? Top it off with more vanilla ice cream, more brownie, and lots of colored sprinkles too! You can add whipped cream and a cherry if you'd like to complete the dessert.

You'll be left with the most decadent and delicious dessert ever.  Most people don't think to serve brownie sundaes at gatherings, but they really should.  Who can resist the creamy goodness of the cold ice cream paired with the heated fudge and chewy brownies? I know I can't.  

Why not make yourself a brownie sundae today? You'll love it!
