Everything But The Kitchen Sink Sundae


It's party time and this is a great
crowd pleaser 
A GINORMOUS
hot fudge brownie/chocolate chip/strawberry...sundae.

You remember my 
that we fed 50 with, well this is a huge, indoor
sundae that can feed 8-10, depending on how
hungry they are.

I was visiting in Texas and we had a birthday party
coming up.  I came up with this super-sized sundae
to celebrate Fred's big birthday.


We started with the largest shallow bowl my sister, Jean, had.
It was about 20-24 inches across.

We started with a ooey, gooey, layer of fudge and
topped it with 18, fresh, hot out of the oven chocolate
chip cookies.


Next, warm, oven-fresh brownies were layered on top.
Yes, we used the whole pan.


We layered on toasted pecans and fresh strawberries.

Oh, this is getting huge!


Three kinds of Blue Bell ice cream (we were in Texas,
so of course we had to use Blue Bell) were scooped
on top.


Finishing touches were, whipped cream, more strawberries and
toasted pecans, caramel sauce and more chocolate.


Then we handed out spoons and dug in.

For the germaphobes, you can offer a bowl
and let them scoop their portion out before
it disappears!


I probably shouldn't tell you this,
 but we had so much fun with this, 
and we had only used half of the ice cream,
so we made a second one while I was there.

Tons of fun for a party!!

This is one of those easy but memorable desserts
that you family will love.

(As I was working on my Dad's life story,
it reminded me of when Joni worked at
Bridgeman's Ice Cream Parlor and 
they had a giant sundae.
It was called the Lollapalooza Sundae.
This definitely is a Lollapalooza!)

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  3. This is BEYOND imagining! And simply gorgeous. We're having guests for a week in June, and though there are but seven of us, with one rather young, I guarantee a slightly-smaller version of this will be a fabulous hit.

    Of course, I'll be rushing to get those warm cookies on the plate, and Caro will be putting on the brownies, and we'll all be scooping and ladling and sprinkling before the warm melts the frozen, and won't it be absolutely SCRUMPTIOUS when it does?

    Yet another party goodie to thank you for!
