How to Make an Ice Cream Sundae

A sweet frozen treat with a combination of your favorite ingredients.








Ice cream sundaes never get old. They are the perfect frozen treat for any time of the year, and you can make one yourself with a few quick, easy steps. The best part is you can personalize your ice cream sundae however you’d like! That’s right…no ice cream sundae is the same. Choose your favorite flavor of ice cream or feel free to combine them, add toppings of your choice, and share your creation with friends and family. This recipe is entirely dependent on what you’re in the mood for or what happens to be in your pantry, but here’s my favorite combination of ingredients. And, let me tell you, I think it is better than ANY ice cream parlor around.

Follow along with my guide to make the sweetest, most sumptuous sundaes…in less than 3 minutes! Are you ready?!

Ice cream sundaes don’t require a lot of supplies, and they are affordable.

Check out the steps below or take a look at my video here.

What You Will Need:

  • Bowl
  • Scoop
  • Spoon
  • Ice Cream (Flavor of your choice)
  • Chocolate Syrup
  • Whipped Cream
  • Sprinkles

Step One: After taking your ice cream out of the freezer, let it thaw for at least 4 minutes. This will make it easier to scoop. In the meantime, get your other ingredients out and ready. Remember, you will want to work fairly quickly. When the ice cream is softer and easier to serve, scoop it into your bowl. You can even combine flavors if you wish.

Step Two: Once you have your desired number of scoops in your bowl, add your whipped cream on top of your frozen treat.

Remember, use toppings of your choice. I love adding sprinkles because they taste as good as they look.

Step Three: Next, drizzle your chocolate syrup over everything. You may choose to heat it up in the microwave for about 25 seconds, however that is completely up to you.

Step Four: Finally, you’re ready to add the sprinkles for a pop of color and added sweetness. If you don’t like sprinkles, you may choose to add chocolate chips, nuts, or marshmallows to finish off your sundae. The creative freedom is in your hands.

Step Five: Eat your ice cream sundae fast before it melts, and don’t be afraid to share your sweet treat!


Okay, this project was really fun, and I am so glad we were able to end our individual projects on a non-stressful note. Looking back, I wish I added a little more variety to my shots. I am pleased with my sequencing, however, I could have added a few more wide and medium shots to add to the flow of the video. Additionally, while the video was short, I wish I could have showed a couple more steps in the process so it was a little longer and more interesting. With that being said, I am proud of my work, and I think this project shows my progress throughout the semester. I filmed my shots purposefully and with conviction, taking only 45 minutes with my camera in the kitchen. While producing my work, I loved having the creative freedom to use upbeat music, add fun, colorful fonts to my titles, and record engaging, light-hearted voiceovers throughout my story. I hope you enjoy my video AND recipe as much as I enjoyed putting it together!

    Hi Olivia!

    I loved this video! You had so many great shots. The close up shot of you scooping the ice cream was was my favorite- so much texture. I also loved the last shot of you eating the sundae, you could tell just how tasty it was! The narration was well written too. The music went perfectly with the video, as well. The only thing I noticed that could maybe be changed was the focus, in the first shot of you putting the whipped cream on the ice cream, was on your arm, rather than the ice cream. Overall this was a very well put together video. Awesome job, Olivia!
