Can you have a decadent dessert made in about 10 minutes -- or less? You bet you can. The key is to combine freshness with something unexpected (but still simple) and something easy. This sundae follows those rules to a T.
You start by making a special sauce. Seriously, this sauce is something. Heavy cream plus white chocolate equals magic... pure magic. Heat the heavy cream and add the chocolate, stirring to combine. Now, you have a to-die-for white chocolate sauce.
It's time to assemble the sundaes: Start by getting everything ready, including the bowls, utensils and ingredients. This will make assembling these blueberry sundaes a breeze.
Spoon out the ice cream into four bowls -- and don't skimp. You'll want a fair amount of ice cream. Now, drizzle on that white chocolate sauce. Watch as it creates channels through the ice cream, flowing down the sides. That's going to be good.
Now, pull out those blueberries that you picked last weekend. Rinse them, shaking gently to remove as much water as you can. Sprinkle onto the ice cream... all over.
Finally, if you want, you can finish off the sundae with a squirt (or dollop) of whipped cream.
Now, eat! Or better yet, be the hero mom and call your kids to come enjoy the sundaes with you. Cuz, hey, there's something pretty awesome about a mom who surprises her kids with sundaes -- even ones with fruit on them.
Blueberry white chocolate sundaes
- 4 cups vanilla bean ice cream, divided

- Whipped cream (optional)
- Divide the ice cream into four bowls (1 cup per bowl -- adjust amount as desired). Drizzle each with 1/4 of the white chocolate sauce, pouring it all over. Sprinkle the sundae with blueberries. You can use more, if desired. Finish with a dollop of whipped cream.
White chocolate sauce

- Remove the pan from the burner and stir in the chocolate. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Stir again until it is smooth.
