You might think of ice cream sundaes as a summertime treat, but with the array of limited-edition holiday-themed ice cream flavors, a sundae bar is a great way to get to sample them all. Bundle up, turn on the heat, and let guests make their own sundaes with ice cream you’ve allowed to soften a bit for easy scooping. Holiday-friendly flavors might include peppermint stick, eggnog, and butter rum, but old favorites like Rocky Road and Cookies and Cream are welcome, too.
Provide toppings such as candies, sprinkles, sliced fruit, cookie crumbs, whipped cream, nuts, and plenty of ice cream sauces (hot fudge, caramel, butterscotch, raspberry, etc.). Fresh bananas allow folks to turn their sundaes into splits if they desire. You can include cones if you’re not too worried about neatness, but bowls will ensure your carpet doesn’t suffer too much if there are a lot of children to feed.
