Insanely Delicious Sundaes You Need To Eat

If there’s ever a time to take dessert-making over the top, it’s with ice cream sundaes. The beauty is that you can make an insanely decadent dessert with no baking involved. These seven recipes all use store-bought ingredients, so the most you have to do is heat up Nutella, and even that’s totally optional.

A pint glass or even a mason jar is perfect for creating stratified layers, so every bite is well-balanced. As you build your ~dream sundae~, don’t worry about specific quantities — just go where your heart and stomach take you.


Chocolate Caramel Turtle Sundae

An ample amount of caramel and fudge sauce is key to this turtle-themed sundae. Spoon both between scoops of caramel ice cream, and add chopped Snickers and pecans to each layer. We used salted caramel ice cream, but you will #win if you can find a tub of Breyers’ Snickers flavor. You can also swap the Snickers for actual chocolate and caramel turtles.


Cookie Lover’s Sundae

Cookie butter is one of God’s most beautiful gifts to humans. Melt it in the microwave, drizzle it generously between layers of cookie dough ice cream, warmed fudge sauce, and crumbled Oreos. Not an Oreo fan? This sundae would also be amazing with Chips Ahoy or Famous Amos. And, if you manage to have extra cookie butter, try swirling it into brownies.


S’mores Sundae

Before you start building the sundae, drizzle the glass with fudge sauce warmed up in the microwave. Then stack alternating layers of vanilla ice cream, marshmallow fluff, crumbled graham crackers, mini marshmallows, and of course more fudge sauce. If you have a kitchen torch, toast a few big marshmallows to take this to the next level.


Nutella Deluxe Sundae

To get well-balanced bites throughout the entire glass, layer small scoops of ice cream with crumbled brownies, chopped hazelnuts, and a drizzle of warmed-up Nutella.
