Sundae Bar Recipe

Come Party With Me: Annabelle's Birthday — Desserts

To celebrate her fourth birthday, FabSugar and her Frenchie, Annabelle, are going to make dog-friendly cupcakes. Annabelle loves to cook, so they'll be using Francesca and Sharkey's (Martha Stewart's Frenchies) recipe. The cupcakes are a mixture of ground, dried dog food, carrots, and peas. For the people in attendance, Fab's mom is taking a tip from Giada de Laurentiis and will be putting together a gelato bar!

She'll make a simple chocolate sauce and freshly whipped cream. Then she'll set out an assortment of toppings like chopped nuts, peanut butter chips, and rainbow sprinkles. The guests can make a sundae to their liking. Sound fun? Get the recipe.

Ingredients

  1. Milk Chocolate Sauce:
  2. 1/2 cup whipping cream
  3. 1/3 cup honey
  4. 1 (11.5-ounce) bag milk chocolate chips
  5. Whipped Cream:
  6. 1 1/2 cups whipping cream, chilled
  7. 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  8. Sundaes:
  9. 1 (1/2-gallon) vanilla, mint chip, or coffee gelato
  10. 1 (1/2-gallon) Neapolitan ice cream
  11. Assorted toppings (coarsely crumbled chocolate sandwich cookies, almond biscotti, amaretti cookies, chopped toasted almonds, sliced fresh strawberries, rainbow decors, chocolate sprinkles, mini candy-coated chocolates, and maraschino cherries)

Directions

  1. To make the milk chocolate sauce: Combine the cream and honey in a small heavy saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate. Let stand until the chocolate melts, about 2 minutes, then whisk to combine. Cool the sauce slightly, then pour into a clear glass serving bowl or small pitcher. (The sauce can be made 1 week ahead. Cool completely, then cover and refrigerate.) Re-warm the sauce in the microwave, if necessary.
  2. To make the whipped cream: Using an electric mixer, beat the cream and sugar in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Transfer the whipped cream to a serving bowl. (The whipped cream can be made 2 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
  3. For the sundaes: Place each topping in a separate serving bowl. Scoop the gelato or ice cream into dessert bowls and drizzle with the milk chocolate sauce. Allow guests to sprinkle their desired toppings over their sundaes. Top with the whipped cream and cherries, if desired.
