Holiday Simple: 1-Minute Peppermint Stick Sundaes

‘Tis the season for pure chaos, isn’t it?  Put your hands up if you’ve run more errands, visited more stores, dressed for more parties than Paris Hilton does in a month and I’ll give you two snaps up and a chocolate sundae.  Of course, this chocolate sundae isn’t one of those meticulous holiday recipes that sucks hours from your already hectic day.

No, these pretty little sundaes, complete with a Warm Chocolate-Peppermint Sauce can be made in less than 60-seconds.  Which will allow you a few minutes to kick back, relax, and spoon into a bite of pure indulgence.  A warm, chocolatey, pepperminty indulgence that will have you saying “yummmm. yummmm” as if you were a real-live yoga master.  Paris Hilton, yoga breathing, and chocolate?   Now, that is what I call a happy holiday. 

Peppermint Stick Sundaes

  • 1 pint vanilla bean or peppermint ice cream
  • 3-5 mini peppermint balls or mini candy canes
  • 1/2 cup 50-Second Peppermint Hot Fudge

Spoon ice cream into a small bowl.  Top with peppermint hot fudge, candy sprinkles, and a peppermint ball or candy cane.   Serve immediately or freeze individual portions until ready to serve.

50-Second Peppermint Hot Fudge

  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract

In a small bowl, add chocolate chips and whipping cream.  Microwave for 35-50 seconds.  Remove from microwave and stir peppermint extract into the mixture. Continue stirring until smooth.  Microwave an additional 15-30 seconds, if needed, to completely melt the chocolate chips.  Spoon over ice cream, and enjoy!
