salted-chocolate hot fudge sundaes

Since I can’t saddle up to the sundae bar at Morgenstern’s right now, I’m bringing the sundae bar home with these Salted-Chocolate Hot Fudge Sundaes. Sure, you can make a sundae with just a scoop or two of ice cream and a glug of sauce on top, and I often do simply that, but why not put a little more care into it on a Friday night? This sundae has a scoop each of coffee and vanilla ice creams, toasted slivered almonds, chocolate bits sprinkled with smoked sea salt and a generous amount of homemade hot fudge sauce. A whipped cream squiggle and a cherry on top finish it off. Where’s my spoon?

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see all of our ice cream treats this week.

  1. This is just perfect Steph! ❤

  2. Loved this post…made me want to “saddle up to a sundae bar”! I love your plating…I didn’t have quite the right dinnerware or backdrop to look as professional as you!! I need to figure out how to do the white backdrop!

    • thanks! my backdrop is my laundry room folding counter, which is white, with a piece of white poster board propped against the wall behind it (in some lighting, including in this photo, you can see a kind of tone difference between the two whites, but what can i do?)

      • Oh! Good to know! I always love yours and I find I am always trying to deal with the shadows or backgrounds in my kitchen. I need to graduate to a more polished look like yours! It always looks so professional!!

      • wow, i’m blushing, thanks! xoxo

  3. Love the fresh cherry. This dessert was the best. A nice way to end the summer.

  4. I can take spoonfuls after spoonfuls of this sundae. It looks spectacular!

  5. Ok now that is a spectacular photo ! Yes, this was a fun one. It is a perfect time for simple pleasures at home. Well done you !

  6. Wow ! That photo is absolutely fabulous – and I know the sundae was too ! It’s the perfect time for simple pleasures at home and this one ticked all the boxes.

  7. I did everything but put the cherry on top. Next time my delicious sundae gets a cherry. Wasn’t this a fun recipe to create? Personally I don’t make “elaborate” sundaes at home. I usually order one as a special treat in a special shop. But when I can entertain again – post virus, will that every happen? – I will treat my dinner guests to my own version.
