Swiss Chocolate Almond Sundae Recipe


Today I am posting the recipe for Swiss Chocolate Almond Sundae Recipe from my How To Throw A Dinner Party post.

This is a really great and easy recipe, and my husband's favorite sundae.  He grew up in Connecticut and they have ice cream parlors there called Friendly's, and he used to get these there as a kid.  When we go and visit his mom, we hit Friendly's at least two times so that he can get his Swiss Chocolate Almond Sundae fix.  His cousins even bought him some for him to take home for his birthday when we were there in September.

A few years ago I came up with a recipe for Swiss Chocolate Sauce and it is really close to what we get when we eat at Friendly's.  My husband can now get his sundae fix in Denver, and because I am such a good wife, I try to help out as often as possible.

So here is a great recipe for

Swiss Chocolate Almond Sundaes.



Ingredients:

Swiss Chocolate Sauce
1 pt chocolate ice cream
1 pt vanilla ice cream
1 pt coffee ice cream
sliced almonds
whipped cream
maraschino cherry

Directions:

Put one scoop of each ice cream flavor in a bowl or sundae cup.
Put Swiss Chocolate Sauce over the ice cream
Top with almonds, whipped cream, and a cherry.

Swiss Chocolate Sauce

1 jar hot fudge sauce ( heated to make it softer and stirable)
1/2 container marshmallow cream

Mix hot fudge and marshmallow cream together until mixed well.

Now wasn't that easy.  These were so cute at the party.  I served them in mason jars.  I was able to make them the day before, and I put them in the freezer in the mason jars.  I also made 1/2 of them with caramel cone crunch ice cream and 1/2 with the coffee ice cream.  I let everyone put the whipped cream, almonds, and cherries on their sundaes themselves.

This turned out to be a really fun dessert for everyone, and they looked so pretty.  Let me know what you think.  I always love hearing from you.

Enjoy!!!

  5. Hi Debbie, Thank you for posting your Swiss Chocolate sauce recipe.. Many, many years ago I had my first Friendly's Swiss almond sundae. I loved the sauce. I was very disappointed that it was removed from the menu. Some years ago it was on the menu as a limited edition special and was off the menu before you knew it. Last week on our way to the Cape we stopped off at a Friendly's and low and behold Swiss chocolate was listed as one of their many toppings- Unfortunately, I didn't try it-but I will definitely make your version of it.. I have seen a few recipes for Swiss chocolate sauce but could tell that the finished product would not be close to the Friendly sauce. My friend and I both concurred that there was some marshmallow in the original sauce. Looking forward to trying your recipe . Thank you, Linda

  6. Hey Linda,
    I would have responded by email, but you're a no reply comment blogger. I actually got the recipe from an employee at Friendly's. The person told us that this is how they make it when they run out. I hope that you like it. Have a great weekend.
