13 Awesome Ice Cream Sundaes Slideshow

Magic at Molly’s

"Molly's Favorite Sundae is made with one scoop each of our Salted Caramel and Melted Chocolate ice creams and topped with hot fudge, candied hazelnuts, whipped cream, and a Chukar cherry. It's pretty awesome! Our Salted Caramel is extra salty and Melted Chocolate is super chocolaty and the two flavors are magic together." — Emilia Arnold, project manager, Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream, Seattle

Sticky Rice, Please!

"One of the Salt & Straw favorite sundaes, especially for summer, is the Sticky Rice Sundae. It contains rum caramel bananas on a bed of sweet sticky rice, vanilla ice cream, and house-made cinnamon croutons. Andy Ricker of Pok Pok taught [us] his secrets on making sticky rice for the sundae." — Salt & Straw, Portland, Ore.

Patriotic Scoop

"A popular sundae featured in July is the 'Red, White and Blue Sundae,' [with] vanilla ice cream, blueberries, [and] more vanilla ice cream topped with strawberries, whipped cream, and a flag." — Paul Endres, Sundae School, Cape Cod, Mass.

Seriously? Holy Cow

"A Wholey Cow is a very large sundae, designed to share with others. It includes 10 scoops of ice cream, any topping the customers want, candies, hot fudge, caramel, nuts, bananas, brownies, etc… and an entire can of whipped cream. It’s by far our most outrageous sundae here at Moomers!" — Becky Plummer-Mead, owner, Moomers Homemade Ice Cream, Traverse City, Mich.

Classic Never Hurt Anyone

"Our most beloved and popular sundae is three scoops of salted butterscotch ice cream, topped with homemade hot fudge and whipped cream, nuts, Sweet Action sprinkles (blue, yellow, green, white), and a cherry. It's a classic hot fudge sundae." — Sam Kopicko, owner, Sweet Action Ice Cream, Denver

All About the Ice Cream

"Our minimalist sundae is two scoops (your choice of flavor combo), Ghirardelli dark chocolate syrup, real whipped cream, and a couple of maraschino cherries. [Add] nuts if you want 'em — we have peanuts, piñons, and pecans. It may not be the most outrageous, but for us, it's about the ice cream." — Jamie Leeson, Owner, Eat Taos Cow, Arroyo Seco, N.M.

The colors celebrate the color of the Knicks when he was on the team." — Chinatown Ice Cream Factory, New York City

3’s All Around

"Three Twins offers the world's most expensive ice cream sundae ($3,333.33) at all of their scoop shops. The sundae consists of a banana split made with syrups from a trio of rare dessert wines: a 1960s vintage port, a Chateau D'Yquem, and a German Trockenbeerenauslese. The sundae is served with an ice cream spoon from the 1850s. Not to be outdone by other overly priced foods, one-third of the purchase price from this sundae will be donated to a local land trust. If you plan order a day ahead, Three Twins will have a cellist perform while you enjoy your decadent dessert." — Three Twins Ice Cream, San Francisco
