An Ice Cream Sundae can make any Celebration Cool

My son enjoying his ice cream celebration
My son and I had an end-of-school ice cream celebration to remember...

As I have mentioned more than a few times this week, my son graduated from elementary school last week.  But what I did not tell you is that he graduated with perfect attendance for 7 years and a 4.0 GPA (can you see me doing the happy dance).  We have had more than a few celebration events over the past week, but the last one was the coolest one of all - because it involved ice cream.

My son loves ice cream so I decided that a Ice Cream Sundae Bar would be a great way to celebrate his last day of elementary school.

I stopped at Walmart on my way home from work to pick up all the items for the sundae bar.  Now, my son and I have different tastes when it comes to ice cream.  He loves vanilla ice cream so I picked him up some Edy's French Vanilla Rich & Creamy Grand Ice Cream. I knew he would love this ice cream because it is soft and creamy and very vanilla in taste. I love chocolate so I bought me some Haagen-Dazs Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream (can you see me licking my lips as I write this).

We both love Chocolate Chip Cookies so I also bought a package of Nestle Toll House Ultimates Chocolate Chip Lovers Raw Cookie Dough.  This cookie dough contains semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips and chocolate chunks.  I thought about buying some sprinkles, but decided instead to get a Nestle Crunch Candy Bar so I could break it into pieces and sprinkle it on top of the sundae.

When I got home, I baked the cookies and they made my home smell wonderful and chocolaty.  Next I topped the cookies with two scoops of ice cream and broken pieces of the chocolate candy bar and topped the whole thing with chocolate sauce drizzled on the ice cream and on the plate. The ice cream was smooth and delicious and all the different chocolate flavors combined into a rich experience.

Both my son and I totally enjoyed this ice cream sundae celebration. And there is enough ice cream, cookie dough and candy leftover to celebrate a few more times this week :)
