For the hot fudge sauce:

  1. Bring the heavy cream to a low simmer in a small sauce pan over low heat. Once the heavy cream is simmer slightly, but not boiling, whisk the chocolate chips into the heavy cream until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
  2. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly prior to serving.

For the salted caramel sauce:

  1. In a small sauce pan, heat the sugar over low-medium heat until it starts to melt. Using either a rubber spatula or a whisk, keep the sugar moving consistently to avoid it from burning on the bottom of the pan.  Whisk/stir until the sugar is completely melted and turning a caramel color.
  2. Reduce the heat to low and whisk in the butter. It will sizzle up and this is normal. Once the butter is incorporated, do the same with the heavy cream and salt until the caramel is smooth.
  3. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly prior to serving.

To build your sundae:

  1. Layer the vanilla ice cream with the hot fudge sauce, salted caramel sauce and pecan halves as desired. Enjoy!
