The Best Homemade Sundae Toppings
Homemade Hot Fudge
If you are a chocolate lover, you would not even consider any homemade sundae toppings without Homemade Hot Fudge. Did you know that it is surprisingly easy to make? It’s just 4, simple ingredients! Plus, it doesn’t have any preservatives or artificial colors other store-bought fudges may have. Imagine that chocolatey sauce dripping down your ice cream. Yum!
Think cookies and cream ice cream, but better. When you add cookies to your own ice cream, you get to decide your cookie to ice cream ratio. I personally love lots of cookies! Mix them in or sprinkle them on top. My personal favorite is to warm up the cookie before adding the ice cream. Hot cookie and cold ice cream go perfectly together! For this, I love classic Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Candy Your Own Nuts
Why buy candied nuts when you can make them even better yourself? This recipe for Candied Walnuts will leave your mouth watering. Make a big batch to have on hand! But be careful; they’re so delicious, they won’t last long!
Adding fruits to my ice cream is one of my favorite homemade sundae toppings. You can leave fresh fruits as-is, or you can sweeten them up a bit. Sometimes, I let sliced strawberries soak in a bit of sugar before adding them to vanilla ice cream with a bit of whipped cream. You can even take a recipe for pie filling like this Apple Pie Filling and cook it down over the stove before putting it on top of your sundae!
Make Some Caramel
Did you know that you can make caramel in the comfort of your own home? This homemade caramel recipe is for making individually wrapped candies, but you can also use it to pour the delicious, hot caramel over your ice cream. Sprinkle a little sea salt to bring it to the next level!
