Decided to get my Martha Stewart on and make a sundae from scratch.  Really I just made homemade ice cream and then went, wellllll I can't put homemade ice cream in a store bowl, and if that I can't use spray can whipped cream.... you probably could use store sprinkles, but I even went homemade sprinkles.  That wasn't a whim though, I had those in the cupboard lol. Just wish I had homemade cherries to put on top!  Guess that's the next project.

I used a waffle bowl maker (I was going to link it and then it was $70!  Don't pay $70 for waffle bowls---I buy all my makers at the second hand shop) and ice cream maker for this dessert, so if you don't have those your mileage may vary.  But if you do, yum yum for you!

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Old Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream

3/4 cup sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1 3/4 whole milk
2 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla extract

In heavy saucepan, combine sugar, salt, and milk.  Cook over medium heat stirring occasionally until mixture is steaming.  Reduce heat to low.  
In medium bowl, slightly beat eggs.  Slowly whisk half of the hot mixture into the eggs and pour back into saucepan.  Cook over medium-low heat until slightly thick, about 3 minutes.  Remove from heat and strain mixture with a mesh strainer into a container.  Refrigerate until chilled or overnight.
When ready to freeze, stir in heavy cream and vanilla into the chilled custard mixture.  Stir ice cream maker and pour mixture through hole in the lid.  Freeze until desired consistency.

Chocolate Syrup

1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix the cocoa powder and the water in a saucepan. Heat and stir to dissolve the cocoa. Add the sugar, and stir to dissolve.
Boil for 3 minutes over medium heat. Be very careful not to let it get too hot and boil over! It is surprising how quickly it will boil up in these three minutes.
Remove from heat. Add the vanilla. Let cool. Pour into a clean glass jar, and store in the refrigerator.
~This recipe yields two cups. It will last for several months in the refrigerator.

Waffle Cone Bowls

2 whole eggs
2 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat your waffle cone maker according to manufacturers instructions.
Mix together egg, egg white and salt until well blended. Beat in the sugar until the egg has lightened in color, about 1 minute. Add the flour and mix until blended and smooth. Add the melted butter and vanilla and mix until smooth.
Pour 1-2 TBSP batter in the center of the iron bowls. Close the lid and cook for 1 minute before lifting the lid to check for doneness. Continue cooking until the desired color is reached.
Quickly remove the waffles from the iron onto a wire rack to cool.

Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Put cream, vanilla, and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and beat until soft peaks begin to form. Cover and refrigerate until serving.

Homemade Sprinkles

Now go make all, or go make one.  And hey, that chocolate syrup is great for those chocolate milk cravings if not just for ice cream.

I am impressed by your work, and grateful that you posted recipes.  I can't wait to try the chocolate syrup, it seems like it could be versatile when making vegan and gluten free desserts for guests with dietary restrictions!  Thank you!
