Set Up A Junk ‘n’ Rubbish Sundae Bar

  • Create a centrepiece for your Home Alone sundae bar by scooping ice cream into a large serving bowl. This can be pre-scooped and refrozen before serving.
  • Place smaller bowls on the side.
  • Fill medium-serving bowls with toppings.

Step 1: Gather Your Sundae Essentials: Choose a variety of flavors to cater to different tastes – classic vanilla, rich chocolate, then throw in some fun festive options, like peppermint swirl.

Step 2: Display Toppings: Add the basics like M&Ms (but serve Christmas colors!), mini marshmallows and chocolate chips. Crushed nuts (consider food allergies though!), cookie crumbs, and bottles of caramel syrup are other options. Don’t forget the whipped cream and chocolate syrup! Then have fun and display some other tasty creative Christmas toppings!

Don’t Forget!

Step 4: Set Up Your Sundae Station: Create a space to easily scoop up your epic sundaes! Arrange bowls, spoons, and napkins. Label each topping to help everyone create their own personalized sundae before you all settle down for your movie night!
