Hot fudge ice cream bar

This ice cream dessert is made by pouring a smooth mix of chocolate syrup and peanut butter on a layer of ice cream sandwich. An ice cream sandwich is a dessert made up of ice cream between two wafers or cookies. Sprinkle with salted peanuts and add another ice cream sandwich to start a new layer. Create as many layers as you desire, although four is ideal, refrigerate until firm and dig in.

Chocolate-covered strawberries

Of all the desserts on this list, this is the easiest to make. First off, melt chunks of chocolate in a microwave until it’s a smooth paste. Dip half of the strawberries in the chocolate paste and leave open for the chocolate to set. For diversity, you can mix white chocolate with regular chocolate or create rings with the white chocolate around the chocolate-covered strawberry. An alternative for strawberries are cherries, which have almost the same effect.
