July 25th is National Hot Fudge Sundae Day (November 11th is National Sundae Day).
How to celebrate? With a DIY hot fudge sundae bar!
Every ice cream flavor works well with fudge sauce, so you can stick with vanilla or offer as many flavors as you like.
You don’t need sundae dishes, although anything glass shows off the dessert better than ceramic bowls.
If you don’t have enough bowls, see if you can borrow some. The bowls can be mixed designs; in fact, trendy restaurants often use mis-matched plates, bowls and glasses.
If you don’t have pretty bowls, consider wine glasses. The easiest option is 9-ounce hard plastic party cups.
1. SET out the ingredients plus scoops, spoons, napkins and service plates (to catch drips).
2. SET the fudge sauce over a tea candle or other burner to keep warm and pourable.
3. GET ready to Instagram!

YOU CAN DO THE SAME THING WITH A WAFFLE BAR
Buy Belgian waffles and set them out on the buffet. Guests can build their sundaes atop a waffle…or add waffle chunks to their sundae bowls.
