Fresh Fruit and Smucker’s Sundaes

In my last post, I shared all of the delicious ice cream sundae supplies I picked up at Walmart for our family’s Sundae Night–which was actually on Monday at our house, but with Smucker’s® ice cream toppings, it’s easy to make any day a Sundae!


My kid’s favorite sundae of the evening was hands-down the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Sundae made with Smucker’s Chocolate Fudge Magic Shell. They loved how the chocolate hardened on their ice cream, and with the addition of fresh strawberries, it really made it seem like we were eating chocolate covered strawberries with our ice cream!


Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Chocolate Covered Strawberry Sundaes:

  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Smucker’s Chocolate Fudge Magic Shell
  • Fresh sliced strawberries
  • Mini chocolate chips


You could really use any of the Smucker’s chocolate ice cream toppings for this sundae, but the Magic Shell was so much fun! Strawberry or chocolate ice cream would also be delicious in place of the vanilla.

My favorite sundae of the evening (they were seriously all amazing and it’s so hard to choose a favorite) was the Blackberry Salted Caramel Gingersnap Sundae.


To make this sundae you’ll need:

  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Smucker’s Simple Delights Salted Caramel Sauce
  • Fresh Blackberries
  • Crushed gingersnap cookies

Some toasted pecans would also be a great addition to this sundae. And I’m planning to enjoy it again very soon with some homemade blackberry ice cream.


If I had to choose my favorite ice cream topping of all-time, it would have to be hot fudge, and Smucker’s has several varieties of hot fudge to choose from. Their Simple Delights Hot Fudge Topping was perfect paired with fresh raspberries and vanilla ice cream.


For this Raspberry Hot Fudge Almond Sundae you’ll need:

  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Smucker’s Simple Delights Hot Fudge Topping
  • Fresh raspberries
  • Chopped toasted almonds

Taking a few extra minutes to toast your nuts really does make a big difference in flavor, so I definitely recommend it! This sundae would be delicious with any kind of berry, or even a combination of your favorite berries.


We love grilling fruit like peaches and pineapple during the summer. They’re both fabulous served with vanilla ice cream, and when you combine grilled peaches with ice cream, toffee, nuts and Smucker’s Butterscotch Sundae topping, it’s pretty much a match made in heaven.

Obviously there are so many more possibilities for combining fresh, seasonal fruit with Smucker’s ice cream toppings–these are just a few of our favorites. I’d love to hear about your ideas for using Smucker’s ice cream toppings to turn an ordinary bowl of ice cream into a fun occasion!
