How to build a DIY Sundae Bar just like Teri with scoops of decadent ice cream piled high with ice cream toppings like hot fudge, candy bars, nuts, and sprinkles!


  •   1 cup assorted nuts
  •   2 cups assorted cookies
  •   6 assorted candy bars
  •   Assorted candies
  •   1 to 2 cups chocolate sauce
  •   Ice
  •   6 pints of assorted ice cream, 2 to 3 flavors
  •   Sprinkles
  •   Whipped cream can
  •   Maraschino cherries


  1.   One by one, chop or sliver your nuts, cookies, candy bars, and candies into small pieces, keeping them in separate prep bowls.
  2.   In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, heat your chocolate sauce slightly to loosen it up. Once the chocolate sauce is warm and loose, remove it from the heat.
  3.   Add ice to one of your serving bowls and nestle the other one on top. If your serving bowls are not the same size, add ice to your larger serving bowl and place the smaller one on top.
  4.   Take one of your ice creams out of the freezer and begin to scoop the ice cream onto the serving bowl, moving swiftly. Repeat with your other ice cream flavors. You should have 3-5 scoops of each ice cream flavor.
  5.   Drizzle the chocolate sauce over the ice cream and sprinkle the assorted chopped toppings over the top and finally add the sprinkles. Add swirls of whipped cream in a few different areas and dot the whipped cream with maraschino cherries.
