A Little Soda Fountain Inspiration


Yesterday I shared with you a wonderful book all about old fashioned soda fountains and incredibly delicious recipes that will make your sweet tooth happy for days.

Today I will like to share with you my little rendition of The Sundae of Broken Dreams. Well, actually, thanks to my husband I was able to taste it and try it out. He loves putting things together more than I do, so many thanks to him!

Recipe for The Sundae of Broken Dreams:

1/2 cup broken salted pretzel bits, in no longer than 1 inch
6 tablespoons Caramel Sauce
2 (4 ounce) scoops vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup Whipped Cream

It looks a little messy but it was a really, really humid day (hello the horror of my hair!), but in the end it was the taste that mattered. The caramel sauce, ice cream, and whipped cream created layers of sweetness which I loved. What really made it all pop in my mouth was the salted pretzel with all that sweetness, just divine. I love it so much this is going to be my "go-to" sundae when I am at home.

  3. Seriously yummy looking!!! I adore salty and sweet on the same spoon and know that this would be a big hit at our house, too. I'd be tempted to add a little chocolate sauce into the mix, too, but would first try (a GF version of) it as is. Thank you for the tasty share!
