Date: Jul 02, 2015 By: Josefine Jiang

Need some inspiration for treats this 4th of July weekend? Look no further! The great thing about Greyston Brownies is that they’re perfectly sized for ice cream sundaes–big enough to share–or not.

Three brownies, three sundaes.

This weekend, celebrate independence and cool off with these 4th-of-July-inspired creations! Let us know your thoughts and share your creations with us!

A classic made with a classic. This is your tried and true hot fudge sundae but amped to another level with a Classic Fudge Brownie base!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 Greyston Classic Fudge Brownie
  • 1/2 cup Vanilla ice creme (or any ice creme of your choice)
  • 1 Overripe banana
  • Hot fudge
  • Whipped creme
  • Maraschino cherries

I used fat free ice creme here– my attempt to feel less guilty about eating three sundaes in one afternoon. Feel free to use any variety of ice creme!

CF 1

Place the Classic Fudge brownie on a plate and microwave for 15 seconds. This step is optional but warm brownies in sundaes are amazing!

A more adventurous take: try freezing the brownie. But cut the brownie up before freezing unless you’re dying to challenge your jaws with a rock-hard brownie.

CF 2

I put a layer of banana between the brownie and the ice cream. Fat free ice cream tends to melt really quickly so that’s a great way to make sure your ice cream doesn’t turn to soup.

Pile on your ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, and of course, put a cherry on top

And voilà!

Note: The cherry discovered oh too late that gravity doesn’t agree with whipped creme mountains.

Inspired by the grand ‘ole flag, this sundae’s a great way to eat your colors!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 Greyston Brown Sugar Blondie
  • 1/2 cup Vanilla ice creme
  • 1/4 cup Fresh strawberry topping (I used the recipe here)
  • Blueberries


Note: Making your own strawberry topping is optional. There are tons of store-bought options out there. However, homemade topping doesn’t leave you with that strange, artificial aftertaste. And it’s delicious!


Again, microwave to get that Brown Sugar Blondie nice and toastie and those chocolate chips nice and melty. Then scoop on your ice cream, strawberry sauce, and top with blueberries.

Now that’s patriotism.

Coconuts are the fruits (nuts?) of the summer. This sundae takes coconut and layers with even more coconut!

Warning: For extreme coconut lovers only.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 Greyston Toasted Coconut Brownie
  • 1/2 cup Coconut ice creme
  • Sweetened condensed milk
  • Coconut flakes

Condensed milk is a popular topping on Asian frozen desserts. Why not put it on a sundae, I ask? It’s perfect to make up for the creaminess that coconut ice cream lacks while serving as a great binding agent to keep the coconut flakes in place.

TC 1

Microwave that Toasted Coconut! Scoop on the ice cream, drizzle with condensed milk, and sprinkle on a generous coconut flakes.

Coconut perfection.
