Some desserts are worth melting for!
You forget how great a hot fudge sundae can be. This is anything but ordinary. When I saw Ice Queen sprinkles by Fancy Sprinkles, I knew I had to serve an ice cream sundae at my Frozen dinner party. I added slivered almonds and amaretto whipped cream as an homage to Norway’s most popular dessert, an almond cake, and topped the sundaes with a white chocolate snowflake for an extra burst of Disney magic.
The hot fudge sauce is simple to make. I made a jar days in advance and just heated it up at the party – so easy! I made the amaretto whipped cream and piped white chocolate snowflakes in the morning so everything was ready to assemble after dinner. The snowflakes were not difficult to do but just in case, I melted 4 oz white chocolate and made about 40 snowflakes even though I only needed 6. I was worried that they would break when I peeled off the wax paper but they were actually quite sturdy! If you’re worried, feel free to do the same. Better safe than sorry!
