These ice cream sundae recipes are beyond creative

Ice cream sundaes are a classic sweet treat for good reason. Not only are they delicious and infinitely customizable, they’re also generally quicker to throw together than a baked dessert. If you have a sweet tooth and are craving an ice cream sundae, head over to TikTok for some sweet inspiration! Here are five of the most delicious and creative ice cream sundaes on TikTok.

1. Supersized ice cream sundae with giant sprinkles and cherries

This over-the-top ice cream sundae isn’t just big, it actually uses custom-made supersized sprinkles and cherries! First, make the giant “cherries” by blending up a jar of maraschino cherries, pouring the puree into spherical molds and placing them in the freezer. Then, to make your giant sprinkles, combine cornstarch, water, corn syrup, vanilla, powdered sugar and food coloring. Pipe the mixture onto parchment paper and let dry. Finally, build your sundae! Start by scooping a generous serving of ice cream into a bowl. Then top with your giant sprinkles and cherries. 

2. Low-carb vanilla ice cream sundae with chocolate leaves

This keto-friendly vanilla ice cream sundae is both delicious and beautiful. Start by making your chocolate leaves by coating real leaves in melted chocolate. Once the chocolate dries, carefully separate it from the leaves. Then compile your sundae. Scoop low-carb vanilla ice cream into a bowl, and top with strawberries, nuts, chocolate sauce and, of course, your chocolate leaves.

3. Ice cream sundae in a caramel bowl

A homemade bowl made of caramel makes this ice cream sundae particularly special. To make the caramel bowl, simply melt caramel candies in a pan for three to five minutes until they fully melt. Then pour the caramel evenly over a greased bowl, and refrigerate it for an hour until it hardens. Remove the caramel from the bowl, and fill it with ice cream and crushed nuts. Then top with more caramel sauce.

4. Strawberry shortcake ice cream sundae

Love strawberry shortcake? This strawberry shortcake-inspired ice cream sundae is for you. To make it, start by crushing or blending strawberries. Then add them to the bottom of a tall sundae glass. On top of the strawberries, add a layer of vanilla ice cream, then a layer of crumbled shortbread cookies. Add one final layer of each ingredient, and top with whipped cream and a whole strawberry.

5. Cinnamon roll ice cream sundae

This cinnamon roll ice cream sundae is so decadent! Start by shaping store-bought cinnamon roll dough over the bottom of a muffin tin. Bake the cinnamon roll dough, then remove it from the muffin tin. The cooked dough should retain the shape of a bowl. Fill each cinnamon roll bowl with the ice cream of your choice, chocolate syrup and sprinkles!
