F is for Fathers Day Sundaes

The way to my hubby's heart is through ice cream - even in winter! We don't eat a lot of desserts but when we do indulge a good ice cream is essential.  So what better for Bear and Bee to make for their dad on Father's Day than Ice Cream Sundaes.

Ice Cream Sundaes a classic dish that most school aged children can make by themselves and depending on the toppings you choose, even younger children could make them with a little supervision.

Now what to put in our sundaes?  Strawberries are at their most delicious here right now so we had to include them.  Plus one of hubby's favourites chocolates - maltesers.  You could however use other fruit in season, such as bananas, any other favourite chocolates or lollies such as marshmallows.

Add to this list chocolate sauce and I thought is was all planned.  That was until I saw this post on Buzz Feed - 40 ways to make an amazing ice cream sundae.  Wow what a list.  So many possibilities.  What to choose?  Without a doubt it had to be Number 24 - doughnut chips.  Though I will be trying many of these suggestions, including the popcorn ones, when summer comes around.

3. Cut the doughnuts in half horizontally and press cut side into combined cinnamon and sugar.
4. Line sandwich press with non stick baking paper and place doughnut halves in between layers.
5. Cook doughnut halves for 1-2 minutes or until sugar has started to melt.  Older children should be able to work the sandwich press under adult supervision, however this step I did while Bear and Bee watched.
6. Place doughnut chips on a plate to cool slightly.
