There are special times in our life when it's time for a celebration. Making some simple and easy ice cream sundaes may be just the ticket for one of those times. It doesn't have to be complicated or expensive - most of your condiments can be purchased at the grocery store or local dollar store.

Last Sunday one of our Sunday School teachers decided to reward the kids for good behavior by giving them an ice cream sundae party. I got the idea to do this after seeing how organized, simple and put together she made it just by using certain toppings and using a universal ice cream that all kids like.

Ingredients

  • 5 gallon tub Neapolitan ice cream, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry
  • 1 package nuts of your choice, almonds, peanuts or pecans
  • 1 package gummy worms, Dots, sour gummies and/or candy worms
  • 1 can whipped cream, any kind will do
  • I package Oreo cookies, chopped into about 6 pieces
  • 1 bottle syrup (squeeze bottle), chocolate, strawberry and/or caramel
  • 1 or 2 aluminum cupcake tins
  • 4-8 Teaspoons for toppings
  • 1 bottle sprinkle dots, in any color

Instructions for making easy ice cream sundaes

  1. Buy the big container of Neapolitan ice cream so the kids (or adults) can choose what kind of ice cream they want (or maybe all of them!) Get an ice cream scooper or better yet a big serving spoon.
  2. Open your condiments and toppings and fill up your muffin tins with the toppings of your choice. Ours included gummy worms, M&M's, slivered almonds and Oreo cookies broken into pieces.
  3. Bring out your whipped cream and syrup bottles and it's time for the party to begin! (and of course you will need bowls for the ice cream sundaes, napkins and teaspoons)

Additional ice cream sundae toppings

I have to say this was one of the easiest ways I have seen to make ice cream sundaes. Here are a few more toppings that would be fun to add, Some would require a bit more work but if you have time go for it!

Additional toppings you could add:

  • strawberries
  • cherries
  • bananas
  • granola
  • coconut
  • chocolate chips
  • marshmallow topping (yum!)

  • Womens retreats (or even men's retreats!)
  • Sleep-overs
