(FOX19) - July is National Ice Cream Month and FOX19 hosted Amy Sandmann and Lisa Thatcher of Aglamesis Brothers Ice Cream and Candy to teach us how to make a "French Quarter Petite."

What you need for the dish:

  • 8 oz Marshmallow Sauce
  • 8 oz Bittersweet Sauce
  • 8 oz Caramel sauce
  • 1 pint of Freshly Whipped Cream
  • 8 oz cup of Crushed Walnuts
  • 8 oz cup of Chopped Pecans
  • 1 pint of Chocolate Ice Cream
  • 1 pint of Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
  • 1 pint of Strawberry Ice Cream
  • 1 pint of French Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 1 bunch of Bananas


  1. In a medium-size serving bowl, slice a peeled banana to cover the bottom.
  2. Dip 4 large scoops of French Vanilla, Chocolate, Fresh Strawberry and Chocolate Chip (or your favorite 4 flavors) in a pyramid shape on top of the banana slices.
  3. Slice a peeled banana lengthwise and then cut it in half to quarter it.  Place the 4 banana spears vertically around the sides between the ice cream and the bowl.
  4. Drizzle 2 oz of Marshmallow Sauce, followed by 2 oz of Bittersweet Sauce, and 2 oz of Caramel Sauce across the entire sundae.
  5. Top with 5 oz of freshly whipped cream.
  6. Garnish with 2 teaspoonfuls each of chopped pecans followed by crushed walnuts.

For a lighter version, use Italian Ices (aka Sorbets) which are dairy-free instead of ice cream and  substitute fresh berries for the sauces.
