Is your Instagram feed blowing up with people showing off their many scoops of ice cream? Don’t get jealous; get active! While eating ice cream straight from the pint is nice, and getting a swirly cone from a truck feels nostalgic, I urge you to go all out this summer and master the sundae.

The Tenth Commandment: Thou Shalt Master the Ice Cream Sundae

A sundae always has the following things: ice cream, some kind of sauce or syrup, and maybe extra toppings like nuts or cherries. This summer you can go the traditional route with hot fudge and a cherry, but there’s so many other options to explore. Try topping your sundae with buttery popcorn and caramel, or maybe go with something boozy like a rum and white chocolate number.

When you’ve found the perfect combination, let us know in the comments. Only then will you have mastered the sundae.
