PARTY: Hot Fudge Sundae Bar (Or Party With Any & All Sundaes)

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 mismatched plates, bowls and glasses.

If you don’t have pretty bowls, consider wine glasses. The easiest option is 9-ounce hard plastic party cups.
The difference between hot fudge and chocolate sauce:

  • Hot fudge is thicker, richer, and solid, much like actual fudge at room temperature. You need to warm it to pour it; hence, “hot” fudge
  • Chocolate sauce is thinner and pourable at room temperature.

    Garnishes Of Choice

  • Bananas
  • Berries
  • Brownies and/or blondies (cubed)
  • Candies: Andes Mints, crushed toffee or brittle, mini peanut butter cups, sprinkles, etc.
  • Chocolate chips or other flavors (butterscotch, mint, peanut, etc.)
  • Cookies or cookie crumbs
  • Nuts

    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!

    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.
