Gooey and Good!

If you are going to have a bunch of kids over, let them help you make a fun dessert. Kids love brownies and they love sundaes. This is a fun dessert without the ice cream. And again, it helps get kids to eat some fruit because they have prepared this dessert themselves. Make sure to serve this nice and cold and you will surely think there is ice cream in the mix of ingredients. I have brought this to a backyard picnic before. We kept it refrigerated until just before serving and when we brought it out, it was gone very quickly.

Here are a few other ideas for this dessert:

  • Add toffee chips instead of walnuts

  • Add some mini chocolate chips or peanut butter chips

  • Add butterscotch chips and drizzle with butterscotch ice cream topping Use blonde brownies

  • Adults only versions: Sprinkle brownies with Kahlua before layering.

  • Sprinkle brownies with Chamborde and use raspberries for the fruit

  • Sprinkle brownies with Grand Marnier and use mandarin oranges for the fruit

Brownie Sundae

Prepare brownies. When cool, cut into 1-inch squares.

In a large bowl, start to layer:

Brownies first.

Next a layer of fruit such as strawberries, bananas, or blueberries, etc

Sprinkle with chopped walnuts

Next add a layer of Cool Whip

Continue to layer with last layer as Cool Whip.

Chill until ready to serve.

Drizzle some Hershey's chocolate syrup on top of the Cool Whip and sprinkle with chopped walnuts just before serving.

You can even toss a few marachino cherries on top!

So let your imagination be your guide. This is fun and easy and oh so gooey!


  1. Oh wow - I am desperately craving chocolate tonight! That would be so good right now! Just one spoonful!


  2. I wish I could eat one of these for breakfast! This is a great idea that I will use for the kids next time.

  3. You are making me hungry what a great idea. I can't wait to try yours looks so yummy.
