Recipes A to Z....."I" is for Ice Cream Sundae Toppings

My Favorite Ice Cream and Topping

My favorite ice cream sundae is pistachio ice cream with hot fudge sauce. If you have never tried it, please do. It's heavenly!

Ice cream sundaes are the easiest dessert to make for company. It is a no-brainer! Buy some vanilla ice cream and set out several toppings and let guests make their own sundaes. Include whipped cream, chocolate sprinkles and nuts. It's fun!

As soon as we loose a few pounds we'll be trying the hot fudge sauce. Actually, maybe we'll try the sauce and then get back to the diet.
