It's Wednesday! But even though we're halfway through the work week, Adam recently found out that he is working even more required overtime this weekend. Boo! So we decided that we'd have some mid-week fun by inviting a few friends over to play some card games, and having a glorious ice cream sundae bar!



What a smörgåsbord! The spread for our sundae bar was bountiful and totally rad! 



I'd be lying if I didn't admit that Adam and I had a *cough* few ice cream treats. Our sundae bar was packed with some of our favorite treats from Safeway--Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia, Breyers All Natural Vanilla, Magnum Double Chocolate, and loads of yummy toppings including hot fudge, marshmallow, chocolate chips, sprinkles, caramel bites, whipped cream, and caramel drizzle. 



While Adam was cleaning up the house before everyone came over, I started making him a Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia sundae. I started off by coating a waffle bowl with hot fudge, and then layered the bottom with mini marshmallows. I added in a few small scoops of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia ice cream, and then topped it off with some caramel drizzle. 


After our friends came over, we invited everyone to make their own ice cream sundaes and dig right in! At the end of the night, after spending hours of playing card games and spending time together, I had realized that we were almost entirely out of ice cream!



My favorite ice cream of the day was putting my own spin on the Magnum Double Chocolate--I heated up a little bit of hot fudge, and then dipped the Magnum Double Chocolate into it; I knew I wanted to enjoy the last of the rainbow sprinkles, so I dipped my hot fudge covered Magnum into the sprinkles, and then threw it into the freezer for 5 minutes (so the fudge and sprinkles would stay put).

It was so good!


Next time I go grocery shopping at Safeway, I'll definitely be picking up another box of Magnum Double Chocolate! I am really excited for the upcoming Albertsons (and banner stores) anniversary sale--there will be lots of great deals on brands that I shop like these yummy ice creams, Hellmann's/Best Foods Mayo, Country Crock Margarine, and even Lipton Tea!


Do you shop at Albertsons or Safeway?



What's your favorite ice cream sundae combination?

  7. I want to find those waffle bowls. Our stores don't have any at all - I've asked and asked!

    1. Your Safeway doesn't have them? I'd ask your Safeway store manager if they have it, or if maybe there is a flagship store nearby that does or something. Sorry you've had issues finding them!
