The warm temperatures of summer are a perfect excuse to enjoy a nice, cold, refreshing treat at any time of day! Ice Cream is one of our favorite summer treats - we have so many great little ice cream shops here in Southern Maine, but sometimes, building your own sundae at home is just as fun as going out!
There is no skimping when it comes to our sundaes. For a base, we always go with a premium ice cream, such as Gifford's Old Fashioned Vanilla. Next, we warm up a little chocolate sauce such as Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Sauce or Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce and drizzle it over the ice cream. Occasionally, we'll even add a drizzle of caramel sauce! A dollop of fresh whipped cream and a sprinkling of fresh fruit such as strawberries or a crunchy topping such as chopped nuts finish it off!
