DIY: Ice Cream Gift Kit



We made this DIY ice cream sundae kit for friends.  We thought it would be super fun for them to take to their cottage.  All they need to supply is the ice cream, and they will be set for some sundae making fun.




I picked up some waffle cone bowls, sugar cones and assorted candies and repackaged everything in clear cello bags with colourful labels and bakers twine. I then made some homemade chocolate sauce, jarred it, and packaged everything together in a little gift box.  It was so simple to put together and the recipients were thrilled, which was the whole point.


Easy Chocolate Sauce

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoon of butter
  • 3 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 6 oz chocolate chips

Combine cream, butter and corn syrup in a small saucepan and heat until the butter had melted and the sauce is almost boiling.

Remove from the heat and add the chocolate, stirring until melted. Cool to lukewarm and spoon into glass jars.  Cover with a tight fitting lid and store in the fridge.

To use, remove from the fridge and let it sit out at room temperature for 1 hour prior to serving, or heat for 15 seconds in the microwave.
