Happy National Ice Cream Day!

Posted on

I just can’t believe that only 1 day is dedicated to ice cream! Since it’s still marshmallow week, here’s recipe for marshmallow sundae topping. This was my favorite topping when I was young. Every place served it. There was an ice cream place called Butterick’s that had the best in town. It’s more of an east coast thing. I’ve never seen it out west. When combined with caramel topping, there’s nothing better on a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Bypass the jarred variety, and make it yourself. (This makes 16 servings. You might want to half it. The all recipes site has the calculator on the recipe.)

The recipe is from

Marshmallow Ice Cream Topping


  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 (16 ounce) package chopped marshmallows
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, butter and milk. Place over low heat, and stir until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil, then simmer 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in the top of a double boiler, melt the marshmallows with the water. When melted, stir into hot syrup mixture until no streaks remain. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla. (I’m sure that left overs will keep in the refrigerator for a day or two.)

Here’s another recipe from Bon Appetit. It’s where the above photo came from.
