Disney copycat "kitchen sink sundae"

During quarantine, we are busy being creative with how to make all this time at home fun. I have been LOVING perusing so many food and baking blogs for new inspo. One of my ALL time favorites, The Disney Food Blog (one of THE best Disney blogs out there) has been posting many fun ideas to trying parks food at home. Our family loves Disney. Our family loves ice cream. In fact, we love it so much we have instated a new tradition during quarantine called "Sundaes on Sunday." From here on, we will be trying a new SUNDAE on Sunday! This week, we decided to try our hand at Disney's famous "kitchen sink sundae" from Disney's Beach Club Resort. On property there, they have an ice cream shoppe called Beaches & Cream.


actual beaches and cream sundae-FAMILY size and served in a real sink!

I got a list of ingredients from Disney food blog, but tweaked to our family's taste. Again, BE FRUGAL! Use what you have and what your family likes. I ended up with the following for our sundae...a lot we had on hand..I bought some fun new things too!



So we had the following items in our sundae:

  • ice cream-Our family of 5 CAN EAT and we take ice cream seriously. You might not need THIS much :) We got banana split, vanilla, and neopolitan.

  • Toppings-chocolate syrup, strawberry syrup, caramel syrup, whipped cream (reportedly takes a whole CAN when you eat the real thing!), cherries, strawberries, sprinkles, nuts, bananas, and pineapple

  • candies-M&M's, gummy bears, mini chocolate chips

  • YUMMY garnishes-snack cake brownies, snack cake strawberry rolls, and Oreo cookies




I got all our ingredients set up and then decided what MASSIVE bowl I would use for our "sink." We talked about a metal one we had, but I decided on this white ceramic one I had in the cabinet. It was a better size and still looked sink like.


To actually BUILD our sundae we all stood around the kitchen table. Everyone took turns building his/her section that had its own unique theme. We went kinda fast so things wouldn't melt but it wasn't an overly hot day and the ice cream was REALLY frozen from being in our deep freeze so we didn't have to rush too much. It was really fun seeing what everyone chose.


I went with a strawberries and chocolate theme...Neapolitan ice cream, chocolate syrup, strawberries, mini chocolate chips, strawberries, strawberry syrup, and brownies


We also had a tropical section with pineapple, banana, and caramel syrup...a cookies and cream section, and a candy filled section! SO FUN!!!!





ALL hands on deck for the kitchen sink!

Everyone was so creative! I would say it took us about 8-10 minutes to build our sundae.



Drum roll please....the FINISHED product!


YUM

Everything was so delicious and this activity gave us our Disney fix! We are so excited to try a new sundae next week.
