For the Fudge Sauce

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup or corn syrup
  • 2 oz semisweet chocolate chopped, or about 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

For the Ice Cream Cake Sundae Party

  • one CarvelĀ® Ice Cream Cake from I Love Ice Cream Cakes
  • your favorite ice cream sundae toppings - caramel sauce sprinkles, chocolate chips, chopped nuts, whipped cream, maraschino cherries, etc.


For the Easy Fudge Sauce:

  • Whisk together the heavy cream, cocoa powder, and brown rice or corn syrup in a small pot until smooth.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 3-5 minutes, until thickened slightly.
  • Remove from the heat and add the chocolate. Stir until smooth.
  • Cool slightly and use immediately, or store in the refrigerator. It will be thick once chilled, so if you want it pourable, you may need to warm it slightly.

For the Ice Cream Cake Sundae Party:

  • Set out bowls and dishes of Easy Fudge Sauce and your favorite ice cream sundae toppings.
  • Serve slices of your favorite cake from I Love Ice Cream Cakes and let everyone choose their toppings to make their own sundaes.
