If you’re looking for a simple but scrumptious crowd-pleasing dessert, this ice cream sundae cake is for you! It comes together quickly but is full of flavor. The base is a basic chocolate cake, which you can either make from scratch or use a box mix. Both work equally well! The addition of a few classic ice cream sundae toppings take this to a new decadent level!
To start, you can either bake your favorite chocolate cake from scratch or use any chocolate boxed cake mix. I used my go-to chocolate cake recipe, which is the one I’ll share below. Once it cools a bit, poke holes throughout the entire cake with a toothpick.
Then comes the fun part – adding the toppings! The sweetened condensed milk goes on first, followed by the hot fudge, and caramel. Heath bar / toffee bits are added and finally whipped cream tops it all off. I throw on more toffee bits to jazz up the look and add extra crunch.
