Chocolate Sundaes!

Yep, I remember having hot fudge sundaes every time we went to Dairy Queen years ago on Sundays.

Back then, it typically consists of a scoop of ice cream topped with sauce or syrup, and in some cases other toppings including chopped nuts, sprinkles, whipped cream, or maraschino cherries. Not any more!

Check them out!


Praline-Peach Brownie Sundaes


1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

2 tablespoons butter

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 medium peaches, peeled and sliced or 1 cup frozen unsweetened peach slices, thawed and patted dry

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

6 prepared brownies

3 cups vanilla ice cream

Additional peach slices, optional


In a large saucepan, whisk the brown sugar, cream, butter and cinnamon until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 6-7 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in the peaches, pecans and vanilla. Cool for 10 minutes.

Place brownies in dessert dishes; top with ice cream and peach sauce. Garnish with additional peach slices if desired.

Yield: 6 servings.



Brownie Sundae with OREO®


12 each OREO brownie, warmed

1-1/2 qt. vanilla ice cream

1-1/2 cup strawberry syrup

3 cups Prepared DREAM WHIP whipped topping

12 each OREO Cookies

12 each maraschino cherries


For each serving: Place 1 brownie on dessert plate or in sundae dish. Top with one #8 scoop of ice cream (1/2 cup), 2 Tbsp. strawberry syrup and 1/4 cup whipped topping.

Garnish with cookie and cherry. Serve immediately.

Tip: Substitute fresh strawberries for cherries.



Oreo Brownie Sundae Cake

Dark chocolate brownie baked in 2 round cake pans. Flour and grease the pans well. Allow to cool completely.

Place 1 of the brownie cakes on a plate.

Pipe cream cheese icing around the edge to form a barrier.

Stand whole Oreos upright by placing them in the icing barrier.

Fill approx. 3/4" of the way to the top of the Oreo barrier with softened cookies and cream ice cream.

Top with 10-12 crushed Oreos.

Drizzle with Hershey's syrup.

Top all of that with the other brownie.

Ice the top brownie with cream cheese icing, allowing the upright Oreos around the side to remain showing.

Drizzle again with Hershey's syrup.

Pipe whipped cream around top and bottom.

Decorate with more whipped cream and Oreo halves.



Chocolate Sundae


1 package pre-packaged brownie squares-about 20 2-inch cubes

1 gallon of vanilla ice cream

1 cup chopped walnuts

½ cup brown sugar

½ cup heavy cream

½ cup dark chocolate, chopped

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 teaspoon chili powder


Preheat oven to 350. Start by melting 4 tablespoons butter and brown sugar in a small saucepot on medium low heat. Whisk the mixture until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture starts to bubble. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in ¼ cup of cream and the chili powder. Fold in the chopped walnuts and pour onto a baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes, remove and cool the walnuts. They should be pliable and separate fairly easily.

Heat a medium size sauce pot with a quarter of water. Bring to a low boil. In a metal bowl toss in the chocolate and 2 tablespoons butter. Set the bowl on top of the pot of boiling water; temper the chocolate by gradually whisking the mixture until the butter and chocolate is incorporated. Remove from heat and pour in ¼ cup of cream. Whisk together the mix and keep at room temperature.

Microwave the brownies in a bowl of your choice, scoop on the ice cream, drizzle with the melted chocolate, sprinkle on the candied walnuts.

Pig out! Enjoy.

8 (1/2-inch-thick) slices pound cake

1 cup double chocolate flavor sundae syrup

1 pint Hannaford vanilla ice cream

1 cup Blue Diamond roasted salted almonds, coarsely chopped
