Mr. Food: Family Sized Sundae

By  | 

We're always time-pressed, always busy, so an ice cream sundae break sure can be a tasty time-out, but why make 'em one by one? Here's the easy make-ahead way that'll have our "gotta have it right away" sundae ready any day of the week!

Using any brands, we prepare a brownie mix according to the package directions, and crumble half of the brownies over the bottom of a large bowl or trifle dish.

We scoop half of a 1/2 gallon of vanilla ice cream over that then layer on a sliced banana.
Top that off with 1/2 cup warmed hot fudge sauce.

Over that, a layer of half a 12-ounce container of thawed, frozen whipped topping.
Sprinkle on 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts and a few maraschino cherries.

Repeat the layers, cover and freeze until ready to serve! And when it comes to ice cream sundaes, anything goes, like if you want a different flavor ice cream or maybe mix and match flavors, warm caramel sauce instead of hot fudge or along with the hot fudge… sure! Want to add a few sprinkles to the mix? Go ahead – it's your sundae!

If you’d like the recipe, just send a self-addressed, stamped envelope, marked “Family-Sized Sundae,” to me, Mr. Food, here at the station, or this crowd-pleaser is online to get you started right away! 'Cause when it comes to ice cream sundaes, the scoop is big or small, any day of the week, and the reaction's always the same: "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!®"
