  • 1
    2 pints Vanilla Ice Cream
    Caramel Sauce
    Candied Pecans
    Chocolate Ganache
    Brûlée'd Bananas
    To Make the Sundae: Scoop Vanilla Ice Cream in sundae glasses or bowls, and drizzle with Caramel Sauce, Candied Pecans, Chocolate Ganache, and Brûlée'd Bananas as desired.
  • 2
    1 cup Granulated Sugar
    For the Salted Caramel Sauce: Heat Sugar on moderately high heat in a heavy-bottomed 3-quart saucepan.  As soon as the sugar begins to melt, stir vigorously with a whisk or wooden spoon.  As soon as the Sugar comes to a boil, stop stirring.
  • 3
    6 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
    As soon as the Sugar crystals have melted (and the Sugar is dark amber in color), immediately add the Butter to the pan.  Whisk until the Butter has melted, then remove from heat.
  • 4
    1/2 cup Sour Cream
    2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
    Slowly add the Sour Cream and continue to whisk to incorporate.  Add the Salt. Whisk until the Caramel is smooth. Let cool in pan for a couple of minutes before pouring it into a mason jar.  Let cool to room temperature.  Store in fridge for up to 2 weeks.  Warm before serving.
  • 5
    2 Egg Whites
    1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
    1/4 cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
    pinch Salt
    2 cups Pecan Halves
    For the Candied Pecans: Preheat oven to 300°F. Beat the Egg Whites to stiff peaks in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients together except for the Pecans. Whisk the spice mixture into the Whites, and whip slightly, until evenly distributed. Add the Pecans and fold until coated.

    Spread the nuts on a parchment lined sheet pan in an even layer, and bake until golden brown, about 35-40 minutes, stirring frequently.

  • 8
    1 cup Chopped Dark Chocolate
    1 cup Heavy Cream
    For the Chocolate Ganache: Place the chopped Chocolate in a large bowl. Bring the Cream to just under a boil, pour over the Chocolate, and then whisk together.
  • 9
    2 Bananas (sliced)
    1/4 cup Turbinado Sugar
    For the Brûlée'd Bananas: Arrange the Bananas on a sheet pan. Sprinkle the Sugar over the Banana slices. Using a torch, carefully brûlée the Sugar until golden brown.
