Ice Cream Sundae Bark
Ice cream sundae bark is the perfect sweet treat! It combines elements of an ice cream sundae and puts them into an easy to eat, easy to make treat that can be customized to your liking!
Ice Cream Sundae Bark
Hi friends! Do you love ice cream sundaes as much as I do? I love them, especially in the summer time. It’s not even because of the coldness of the ice cream on a hot day. It’s because I love to load mine with tons of different toppings and see which ones I like best (hint: its all of them).
Sometimes making a whole ice cream sundae proves to be too much work, which is why I thought “Hey! Everyone likes bark!” It doesn’t take long to make, it is totally customizable to virtually anything you would put on a regular ice cream sundae and you can keep the extras in an air tight container, so the next day you can have another piece or two!
I also love this bark because it is a great thing to make with the kiddoes! This bark is supposed to look “messy” so there is no need to worry when your kids start throwing toppings on the melted almond bark. It is also great to make individual bark pieces. Your kids can throw whatever they like on their own piece! Cool huh?
How to make this bark
The almond bark: You can use vanilla or chocolate flavored almond bark. It’s all about if you like vanilla or chocolate flavored ice cream as your sundae base.
The toppings: You can use virtually any toppings you would like that will stay hard or crunchy on top of the melted almond bark. Think nuts, toffee, cookies, caramel candies (not the syrup), skittles, white chocolate chips, etc. I would recommend using about ¾ cup to 1 cup of toppings, not including the crushed waffle cone pieces.
Cooling time: Once all the toppings are on, the bark will need to cool for about an hour on the counter. You can also cool it in the refrigerator (as long as it’s on the parchment paper, on a cookie sheet for easy transfer to the refrigerator). I usually let it cool at room temperature so that some of my toppings don’t get soft (like cookies or the waffle cone pieces).
- 1 (24 ounce) package vanilla almond bark
- 1 pre-made waffle bowl, or two pre-made waffle cones crushed into small pieces
- ½ cup mini chocolate chips, divided
- ¼ cup mini m&m’s
- ¼ cup crushed pieces of brownie brittle
- In the microwave or double boiler, melt the whole package of almond bark until smooth.
- Spread the melted almond bark evenly onto a large piece of parchment paper on the counter, making sure the almond bark doesn’t get to close to the edges. You can also place a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet then pour the almond bark onto the parchment paper and spread out evenly. The bark will be thinner if you spread it out on the parchment paper on the counter, and thicker if you use the cookie sheet.
- Microwave ¼ cup of chocolate chips until smooth and drizzle over the melted almond bark.
- Evenly sprinkle your toppings onto the melted almond bark, using as many sprinkles as you desire.
- Once all the toppings are on, let it cool on the counter for about an hour, or until hardened.
- Break into pieces (as big or small as you want) and store in an air tight container.
