Ice Cream Sundae Treats In National Ice Cream Month

My last ice cream blog post focused on National Ice Cream Month and trying your hand at making ice cream sorbets. Well, here's another idea before the month is out .... try a making a special ice cream sundae. Here is my favorite .... the Knickerbocker Glory.

Ingredients for the Knickerbocker Glory in the photo above ....
(I know because I made it and my husband photographed it!)

Slices/pieces of fresh fruit of your choice to go in the bottom of the ice cream glass - I chose strawberry, melon and black grape

2 scoops of vanilla ice cream

1 scoop of strawberry ice cream

Fruit sauce to pour over - I chose strawberry sauce though melba sauce is just as nice

Whipped or squirter cream to top off the sundae

Glace cherry put on last (strawberry is a popular alternative)

NOTE: You can use homemade ice cream or bought-in ice cream (though homemade I find is always best if you have time).

See the Wikihow page on the Knickerbocker Glory for extra hints and tips.
