At my old high school, the snack bar served Dusty Millers, Vanilla ice cream, topped with malt powder and chocolate syrup. They were so popular that they were served as the dessert at our 20th reunion this past May.

Grand Marnier on vanilla ice cream....YUM!

My mon used to make a peanut butter hot fudge sauce than was fantastic but she's gone now and nobody can remember the recipe. What I wouldn't give to sit down with her and a big bowl of ice cream. Or even without the ice cream.

I haven't had any ice cream in years, but when I was younger -- lots younger -- I used to have a favorite sundae that had eight scoops of ice cream with hot fudge, strawberry and butterscotch syrup, chocolate shot, pignoli nuts, maraschino cherries and whipped cream. If I were to have it today I'd leave out the nuts.

Haven't done this in years, but a friend of mine used to put amaretto on a Wendy's Frosty! If a Wendy's trip was not possible, vanilla ice cream would do just fine.
My mom makes an awesome chocolate sauce that I can't seem to duplicate. I like it on cookie dough ice cream.

Right! But since I moved out west I haven't seen walnut/syrup topping in the markets so I have to make my own. I dump a package of walnut halves in a jar and pour in cane sugar syrup (or dark Karo--but cane syrup is better) to cover. They are better after sitting week or more in the refrigerator.

I have caramel, Hershey's syrup and hot fudge on hand, but seldom use them. The IC I buy, usually Blue Bell or Ben and Jerry's, usually has all the add-ins I want and doesn't need any topping.

I'm remembering however as a child when we used to make home-made ice cream frequently in the summer and would top it with home-made fig preserves - very chunky - made from the fruit of a tree in our back yard. Yummy!

In coated bars I like Nestle's Crunch or the ones with Heath Toffee coating. Or just dark chocolate.

One thing I don't particularly like on ice cream is whipped cream, particularly the stuff in a can.

My mom used to order ice cream sodas like that- chocolate with pineapple- she called it a "Hoboken".

I love choclate ice cream with marshmallow topping. Or Coffee ice cream with hot fudge. I dont really love whipped cream. Sometimes I like those wet walnuts. French vanilla ice cream with hot butterscotch or caramel isn't too bad either. I'm not too hard to please.

About 25 years ago, I found myself in a soda fountain in Lima, Peru. I asked for a coffee ice cream and, to my surprise, the soda jerk scooped out some vanilla, sprinkled a bunch of instant coffee, mashed it together, and set it in front of me. Best I ever had.
Nowadays, I like Kahlua on chocolate.

Just plain old hot fudge, with a little whipped cream. Nothing else needed.

Not the most exciting, but nothing beats Breyers Vanilla ice cream, topped with cocoa powder, unsweetened!

I absolutely ruined a bowlful of Ben and Jerry's natural vanilla by adding some maraschino cherries and juice on top.

Bleah.

[:P]Aside from agreeing with the "more ice cream!" crowd, I had almost forgoten about ice cream toppings. There is such a dazzling array of specialty ice cream flavors available in supermarkets, the "toppings" seem to be "built in" now, making it almost superfluous to add anything on top.
Growing up when the basic IC choices were chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry (or Neapolitan if you felt racy), toppings were much more prevalent; Hershey's chocolate syrup or butterscotch at home was a real treat, as was hot fudge if we were out.

I agree. It's delicious. And I also like some Kahlua in my ice cream. But only when the world has been mistreating me.

Ovaltine and a healthy blast of squirty cream.

Oh oh. Can't forget the maraschino cherry.

It depends on the ice cream.
If it's really good ice cream or already has "mix-ins"...more ice cream!
Otherwise...
Butterscotch sauce on coffee ice cream
Warm maple syrup on vanilla or coffee ice cream
Captain Crunch or Froot Loops cereal or granola, slightly crushed, on vanilla soft serve
Sprinkles (or jimmies, whatever) on soft serve. I like the sound of the words "Rainbow Sprinkles."

Vanilla ice cream isn't half bad with Chambord and some hot fudge either

At last year's Roadfood Crabcake get-together in Baltimore I won a bottle of "Elite Coffee Syrup" brought to the fest by Wandering Jew. The stuff is delicious on vanilla ice cream ! I like it so much I just bought a case of a half dozen bottles from the company in Rhode Island.

Cheers, John

I HATE Pitts in my ice cream.

But, I do like hot fudge and whipped cream, not to mention the occasional banana. Which I assume Route 11 thinks would also go well with Brad Pitt.

I have recently become addicted to Toad Sweat Lemon Vanilla sauce. It's a sweet and spicy dessert sauce with habanero chile. It is fabulous on vanilla ice cream.

If I am doing soft serve in a restaurant I like to do Hot Fudge or chocolate syrup, coconut, chopped nuts and sometimes whipped cream. If they don't have coconut I will use sprinkles..occasionally I like butterscotch topping.

Steak n Shake makes an absolutely yummy Strawberry Sundae with vanilla ice cream, fresh strawberries, whipped cream and sliced almonds...with a cherry on top.

At home I will do a premium vanilla ice cream in a waffle bowl with Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate syrup.
Also good...fresh made double chocolate waffles (they are chocolate waffles with mini chocolate chips) with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
In season I will slice fresh strawberries on a bowl of vanilla ice cream.

Banana split with hot fudge on the side, lots of whipped cream, and chopped Brazil nuts on top.
