Earlier today we asked you about your favorite ice cream toppings. (Hot fudge and caramel are definitely the leaders!) Here now are our own favorites: 12 toppings, from peanut butter granola to boozy cherries, that dress up any ice cream into an indulgent sundae.

Here are a few past ice cream toppings from The Kitchn.

Our Favorites
1 Balsamic Vinegar – Yes, that’s right. A really, really good balsamic is amazing on top of ice cream.
2 DIY Magic Shell Sauce – Homemade version of a childhood favorite.
3 Whipped Cream – Cream on top of frozen cream. Oh yeah.
4 Salted Pistachio Brittle – Crack a few shards of this over some pistachio ice cream!
5 Honey Roasted Peanuts – Fancied-up peanuts. Great on chocolate ice cream.
6 Chocolate Curls – Great way to top a sundae.
7 Rhoda’s Peppermint Hot Fudge Sauce – Very yummy.
8 Boozy Cherries – Nora made these for her cocktails, but we’d love to try them on ice cream too.
9 Brown Sugar-Brandy Sauce – This boozy sauce is utterly delicious. Try it on ice cream!
10 Peanut Butter and Honey Granola – Why save granola just for breakfast?
11 Cherries in Red Wine – A rich, grownup topping.
12 Chunky Peach Pancake Topping – Not just for pancakes.
