Describe your favorite Ice Cream Sundae

Here's my perfect ice cream sundae:

*Three scoops, one each of the following flavors: French Vanilla Bean, Rocky Road, Pistachio Nut

*Chocolate Syrup over the Vanilla Bean

*Caramel over the Rocky Road

*Hot Fudge over the Pistachio Nut

*Flanked by a banana, halved, and placed on each side of the ice cream with 2 large sheets of peanut brittle wedged in between the banana halves and the ice cream

*Topped with crushed roasted Macadamia nuts and walnuts and garnished with 3 maraschino cherries

*No whipped cream

And you?

  1. 1 large scoop of coffee ice cream with coffee syrup and lots of whipped cream--my favorite

    1. my second favorite but right up there--1 large cold scoop of coffee ice cream with hot butterscotch sauce and whipped cream....

      1. Mocha Chip or chocolate ice cream, depending on my mood, with macerated strawberries and warm marshmallow topping. No whipped cream and never, ever , any nuts.

        1. jeez how many calories would that be?

            My philosophy is, if you are going to have an ice cream sundae there really isn't any point in counting calories ... :-)

                My father-in-law grew up in New Vienna, Ohio, and they called those "New Vienna Nuts" at the ice cream stand (no longer serving New Vienna Nuts). My husband still talks about them & tries to replicate them at home.

                And of course, DQ calls them Peanut Buster Parfaits. :)

                They ARE good!!
