Coffee Ice Cream Sundae with Mexican Hot Fudge
This is a sponsored post.
It’s National Ice Cream Month and we’re celebrating by featuring different recipes made with Dreyer’s Ice Cream or Frozen Custard. This week’s recipe is a Dreyer’s Coffee Ice Cream Sundae with Mexican Hot Fudge and Gluten Free Brownie pieces. I wanted to make a sundae because one of my favorite memories as a kid was having homemade hot fudge sundaes as a treat on special occasions.
I added the gluten-free brownies pieces because I wanted the sundae to be extra decadent (and my Celiac husband never gets to have anything like this in a restaurant). The brownies I used here were from a quick recipe from a box, but you can also try my homemade gluten free brownie recipe or buy brownies at the store.
The hot fudge was surprisingly easy to make with only a few ingredients. Here’s the recipe:
Mexican Hot Fudge
1 cup good quality semi-sweet chocolate chips
½ cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons corn syrup
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon vanilla
Combine the ingredients in a small saucepan.
Stir gently over a low heat until the chocolate has melted. Once the sauce is smooth, remove from heat.
To make the Sundae:
Place 2 scoops of Dreyer’s Coffee Ice Cream in a small bowl (or coffee cup). Break one brownie into small pieces and drop over ice cream. Drizzle the Mexican hot fudge over the ice cream and brownie and serve immediately. Refrigerate leftover chocolate fudge sauce in a sealed container.
We eat a lot of ice cream and frozen custard, but we rarely have sundaes. It was such a special treat for my boys to have this after a family dinner. The creamy coffee flavor of the ice cream made this the perfect dessert.
I froze the brownies so we can have them with ice cream another time (maybe after a long day of hiking or biking) and we’ll be eating the hot fudge as long as it’s around, which I don’t think will be very long. The Mexican Hot Fudge sauce came out beautifully – just the right texture and combination of flavors.
Come back next week for another Dreyer’s Frozen Custard or Ice Cream Recipe. And check out last week’s recipe for S’mores Chocolate Malt Frozen Custard Sandwiches.
