We were up fishing on Lake Michigan in Wisconsin over Memorial Day weekend, and I had a turtle sundae so good that it made me want to go back for another after I was done with it. Any guesses as to where it was from? Culver’s. That’s right, a fast-food restaurant doing a turtle sundae so good that I wanted more. So, I was determined to get back home and make myself a homemade turtle sundae that would give Culver’s a run for their money (still love you though, Culver’s :)). And all-be-darn, these Homemade Turtle Sundaes are GOOD.
We’re talking loads of fresh, homemade hot fudge and salty, gooey caramel cascading down the sides of classic vanilla ice cream and then a sprinkling of crunchy pecans. You can’t get much better than this! I mean, you could always add brownies. Brownies are always a good idea. This little sundae will win hearts over. And then over again once more.
Don’t be afraid about making your own homemade hot fudge and caramel sauce. It’s such a breeze that you will be shocked that you haven’t been making your own! It doesn’t even come close to comparing to the jarred stuff that you can buy at the store. Make it once and you will be hooked!
You can serve the hot fudge and caramel sauce right away, or let them cool and cover them for a later time to be reheated. Works like a charm.Print
