Celebrating Family With Ice Cream Sundae Fun!


This post has been compensated by the J.M. Smucker Company. All opinions are my own.

We have a very unique family situation. My father lives in Thailand. Because of the distance, he usually comes to visit only once a year. When he comes, the kids love to celebrate to make him feel special. This year, we created an ice cream sundae bar so we could all make ice cream sundaes together.



We had a ton of Smucker’s® Ice Cream Toppings flavors we found at Walmart a few weeks ago. Then we shopped for some other toppings like candy, nuts and chocolate. We figured the grownups would opt for the nut, caramel and chocolate side of the sundae bar and the kids would go for the candy side. I asked my kids and Grandpa to create their own signature sundaes. Here’s what they came up with.

My father LOVES nuts, chocolate, and caramel. He created a sundae he named the Thailand Nutty Delight. Here is his recipe:

  • Layer of mixed nuts
  • Vanilla bean ice cream
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Chocolate cookie crumbles
  • Spoonful of Smucker’s® Hot Fudge Topping
  • Another layer of vanilla ice cream
  • More chips and cookie crumbles
  • Topped with a few nuts and a drizzle of caramel flavored Smucker’s® Sundae Syrup


Next, my daughter could not wait to make a creation. She had a strawberry and marshmallow theme. She called her sundae Strawmallow Dream. She topped a few scoops of strawberry ice cream with Smucker’s® Marshmallow and Strawberry toppings.

My son decided to make a creation over an Italian ice using the Smucker’s® Funfetti Vanilla Cake, candy balls and a gummy bear to serve as “King of Sundae Mountain!”

We love celebrating family with ice cream sundaes. We create a #Sundaefundae! Grandpa does not have ice cream very often in Thailand so this was a special treat for him. I bet we’ll make a few more sundaes while he’s here.


How do you celebrate family? What are your favorite ice cream toppings? Don’t forget to look for Smucker’s® Ice Cream Toppings at Walmart.

  1. Thanks so much for the Fantastic review on Celebrating Family With Ice Cream Sundae Fun! This is really a terrific idea! We have sundaes, however, we just go into the kitchen and find what’s there and use it! This is so much better! To have a “sundae bar” where everything is right in front of you is a wonderful idea! I really love this! What a wonderful way to spend time with loved ones! Thanks so much for sharing your fantastic review, all the terrific pictures, and your personal and professional opinions on Celebrating Family With Ice Cream Sundae Fun with all of us! I truly do appreciate it! Thanks again! Michele 🙂

  4. Why am I grinning that you used Sweetworks candy in this creation of your son’s? Looks like a fun time where everyone created the Smucker’s delight of their dreams.

    I will definitely look for Smucker’s® Ice Cream Toppings the next time I go shopping. My favorite topping is the hot fudge. I know that Smucker’s® has a dark chocolate topping and I am looking forward to trying it.

  6. Oh wow what a great selection of toppings. My husband would love this.

  7. Between your post and Patty’s I am drooling at my desk currently. And I remember your dad lives in Thailand – glad that you could make his visit special with Smuckers!

  8. Patty says:

    Oh my heavens you had some fun, didn’t you? I’m sure it’s hard to have your dad so far away. I have a very guilty secret – I will eat Smucker’s caramel sauce straight from the jar.
