Ice Cream Toppings


Making the Ice Cream

  • On a sturdy cutting board chop the M&M's into smaller pieces using a long bladed knife. It's easier to do this in small batches.
  • In a large mixing bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer, add the cold whipping cream and beat it on medium to medium hight speed until it forms stiff peaks.
  • Fold the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla into the whipped cream to combine. It's best to use a rubber spatula and slowly rotate the bowl while folding until all the ingredients are combined.
  • Pour ½ of the ice cream mixture into a loaf pans. Sprinkle with half of the chopped M&M's. Repeat again. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 6 hours, or overnight.

Making the Red, White & Blue Ice Cream Sundaes

  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl whip the cold whipping cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. You can also use your stand mixer.
  • Add a small amount of fudge to the bottom of each bowl. 1 - 2 tablespoons is good.
  • Scoop two large balls of ice cream and add to each bowl.
  • Top the ice cream with fudge, whipped cream, M&M's and a cherry.


If you like, add some other mix-ins to this ice cream to snazzy it up even more.
  • Chopped Nuts
  • Coconut
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Cacao nibs
  • Small pieces of fruit
  • Mini marshmallows
Of course, any color of M & M's will work for this recipe, that way you can make these sundaes for any occasion.
The candy coating from the M&M's will melt in the ice cream as you mix it in. This is normal.
