For our Super Bowl party, we wanted a dessert that guests could put together on their own (so the host wouldn’t be pulled away from the game) yet would still fit into the Tex-Mex theme of the menu. We created a sundae inspired by flavors found in many Tex-Mex desserts. The Caramel Ice Cream is a bit salty, the chocolate sauce is slightly bittersweet, and the Cinnamon-Sugar Chips are a riff on the churros commonly seen in Mexican markets.
Game plan: For a slacker solution, you can use any good-quality, store-bought caramel or dulce de leche ice cream. You could also use good-quality store-bought chocolate sauce and, in place of the cinnamon-sugar chips, broken-up churros or snickerdoodle cookies.
For a party, set out the ice cream (on ice, of course), chocolate sauce, and chips, then have people help themselves.
