Dusty Miller Sundae

Dusty Miller Sundae from Lemony Thyme

It all boils down to this.  When I was 11 I would collect change until I saved up $1.25.  Then it was out the back door, over the stone wall, past the corn fields to Silver Ranch.  I would step up to the window and order a Dusty Miller Sundae.

Inside Out Dusty Miller Sundae

I first wrote about my Dusty Miller crush two summers ago when I decided to turn it inside out and serve it on a stick.  Fabulous (and sometimes Outrageous) Fair Food Style. That was quite fun and worth checking out here.

My urge to recreate the original Dusty Miller Sundae began yesterday when this container of malted milk powder practically jumped out of the pantry.  Which subsequently led to making Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce.  Which by the way is unbelievably easy and fudgy.

From there the natural progression was to make Whipped Cream and Vanilla Ice Cream.  Both of which are a cinch to do at home and no special equipment is required.  Check and check.

Top with a healthy spoonful(s) of Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce.  Good laawwd.

Malted Milk Powder

And now for the signature ingredient…. Malted Milk Powder.  Go ahead and add an extra spoonful of this deliciousness.

Homemade Whipped Cream

Add a dollop of Homemade Whipped Cream with a cherry on top (or if you’re allergic to cherries put a strawberry on top) and dig in to the best ice cream sundae EVER.
