Dusty road

Place three scoops of vanilla ice cream in a dish and drizzle with caramel sauce, fudge sauce and marshmallow fluff. Sprinkle dry malted milk powder over all three scoops and top each with a spoonful of whipped cream. Top with a cherry or a few favorite seasonal berries.

Apple and spice

Scoop a generous portion of vanilla bean ice cream into a dish and top with a heaping spoonful of canned apple pie filling. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the top and garnish with a fresh apple slice and a dollop of whipped cream topped with nuts.

Mocha madness

Pour a small amount of mocha chocolate sauce in the bottom of a tulip-shaped dish and top with a scoop of chocolate ice cream. Alternate sauce and ice cream for two layers, then generously pour on caramel topping. Sprinkle on a dusting of cocoa powder and garnish with peanuts, walnuts or cashews.

Choco peppermint sundae

Crush 24 peppermint hard candies and set aside. Begin layering the sundae in a tall dish, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream sprinkled with crushed candy and a pour of fudge sauce. Repeat the layers and garnish with whipped cream and a final dusting of candy pieces.

Candyland toffee sundae

Crush a large Heath candy bar into small pieces. Alternate layers of vanilla ice cream, candy pieces and nuts as you build the layers. Top it all with caramel or butterscotch syrup.

Inventive sundaes are easy to make with jarred dessert sauces that store right in your pantry and are ready when you are. It’s always the right time for an ice cream sundae!
