Sundae Supreme Recipe

Make a cookie cup out of store bought cookie dough or make the following cookie dough recipe. You can use any type of cookie recipe you would like. Here is our favorite.

ice cream sundae

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup mini milk chocolate chips
Work together as a team and assign different tasks to each child so everyone has a turn adding or stirring. In mixing bowl cream together butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. Have kids take turns adding ingredients. Mix in a mixer or stir using a wooden spoon. Add in baking powder, baking soda, and flour giving each child the opportunity to add and stir. With a wooden spoon stir in chocolate chips. Grease each hole of a muffin pan. Press a small ball of dough into each muffin cup. Press cookie dough up along sides making a well in the middle. Bake at 350 degrees for 7-10 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool.

While cookie cups are baking prepare the table with sundae toppings, chocolate syrup, strawberry syrup, caramel syrup, ice cream scoop, crushed cookies, chopped nuts, plastic bowls and plastic spoons.

When cookies are done, press down the middle of the cookie with a back of a spoon or ice cream scoop while they are still warm. Allow to cool and give each child a sundae cup and a scoop of ice cream. Let them put their own toppings on.
