On July 25th, National Hot Fudge Sundae Day takes a turn representing National Ice Cream Month in delicous style!! Feast on this tasty ice cream dessert that combines hot and cold with a cherry on top. This dessert has been served since 1906. Given that the hot fudge sundae is a variation of the classic sundae, making one is a cinch. Simply put a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream in a dish. Add hot fudge sauce, top it with a dollop of whipped cream and some nuts. Finally, add a single, bright-red, sweet, marashino cherry.
Ithaca's claimed to the ice cream sundae takes place at Platt & Colt Pharmacy in 1892 where Reverend John M. Scott stops to order a bowl of ice cream. When Chester Platt, began preparing the ice cream for his customer, he didn't stop at just a couple of scoops of vanilla. Platt drzzled cherry syrup over the ice cream and topped with a bright red cherry. The dessert looked and tasted so good it required it own name. Since the day was Sunday, it was named Cherry Sunday.
