Taking an ice cream and making it into a Sundae is one of my favorite treats. In this case, I’ve taken CherryMan Maraschino Cherries, Date Lady Caramel Sauce, Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss Vanilla Island and a luscious cherry brownie and turned them into a fantastic brownie sundae.
What’s cool about the ingredients in this sundae is that they’re all-natural and non-GMO! The Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss ice cream is dairy-free, soy-free and gluten-free as well as USDA-certified organic and Non-GMO verified. Usually maraschinos are a franken-fruit, if you will, but CherryMan’s Farm to Market cherries are a great alternative to the ones of your childhood.
The warm brownie pairs perfectly with the cold ice cream and the caramel sauce is rich with flavors; it’ll be hard to share this with others, but if you do you’ll be making all sorts of friends! A bonus: Date Lady’s Caramel Sauce is super versatile and not too thick, so you don’t have to warm it up to get your caramel on.
You see why this sundae is so spectacular? I sure hope so! Bet you won’t believe me when I say that the best has yet to come.
