Ice Cream Sundae Cake Recipe

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.

Enjoy your ice cream sundae cake! Share in the comments if you’ve made something similar or have any other topping suggestions!
