Sundae of the Week-No Way Jose-Disney copycat

So I am a few days behind in posting this...it's almost time for ANOTHER sundae of the week. But, I couldn't let this one pass me by. It was just TOO good. This week, we did a recreation of the No Way Jose from Disney's Beaches & Cream soda Shoppe at the Beach Club Resort. We were inspired by the Disney Food blog to give this one a go in our home kitchen, and I gotta say, this was one of the BEST ice cream sundaes I have ever had.



The original No Way Jose from Beaches & Cream

We had all the ingredients for the sundae in our pantry other than peanut butter chips and some hot fudge ice cream topping.


Here is the full ingredient list for sundae and AMAZING PEANUT BUTTER SAUCE TOPPING:

  • Vanilla ice cream (We have been buying the big gallon tubs lately because it lasts longer)

  • hot fudge topping

  • evaporated milk

  • vanilla extract

  • smooth peanut butter (NOT natural)

  • peanut butter cups

  • mini chocolate chips

  • Whipped cream, cherries, and Nutter Butter cookies for garnish

The secret of this sundae was the homemade peanut butter sauce topping. IT WAS HEAVEN. I researched a bunch of peanut butter sauce recipes online and decided on this one because it used evaporated milk. MADE IT SO SMOOTH AND DELISH. You can find it on crazyforcrust.com, but I will list it here too:



The peanut butter magic begins

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 C sweetened condensed milk

  • 1/2 C creamy peanut butter

  • 5 TBSP water

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

1. Place sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until smooth. Add water and stir until incorporated. Remove from heat then stir in vanilla.



2. Transfer sauce to a jar to cool. It will thicken as it cools. To make it pour-able, just heat it in the microwave for a few seconds, then stir and drizzle or pour over your favorite ice cream. Store covered at room temp.


SO good!!!

After the sauce was done, we assembled the sundaes. I looked at the original picture and noticed how they layered the sauce and hot fudge on the bottom. So, we followed suit and created the layers in our sundaes. I poured more on the top and used spoon to fill crevices. After topping with whipped cream, a cherry, and a Nutter Butter cookie, we were ready to dig in. Everyone LOVED the sundae! I would say it was a smashing success. Next week, we will be trying the doughnut sundae from the Plaza Ice Cream parlor at Disney's Magic Kingdom. Can't wait!
