Today marks Veteran’s Day (in the U.S.) and Remembrance Day (in Canada). However, on November 11 in addition to showing gratitude to those who have served and are currently serving to protect the freedoms and fortunes we enjoy in both great countries, you can be extra thankful if one of those freedoms you enjoy comes in two scoops of ice-cream topped with whipped cream, hot fudge, and a cherry on top…because today is also National Sundae Day!

National Sundae Day is celebrated on November 11 across the United States. With four U.S. cities staking claim to be the birthplace of the sundae—Ithaca, New York; Two Rivers, Wisconsin; Plainfield, Illinois, and Evanston, Illinois—the proof is, how do you say, still as sticky as caramel sauce, with the true origin still unknown. However, you can show thanks today by throwing an ice cream social for your neighborhood veterans because nothing says gratitude like an array of sweet ice cream flavors topped with delectables like these…

1. Caramel Apple Sundae

Tall sundae bowls overflowing with warm, caramelized, cinnamon-spiced apples as the mixture slowly melts into two gracious scoops of cinnamon-flavored ice cream topped with a mouth-watering pecan-oat crumble. Top with whipped cream and a cherry if you so desire…but of course you do!

5. The Ultimate Brownie Sundae

This sinful fudge brownie-based sundae might be meant for sharing, but believe me, you will want to keep this bowl all to yourself. Plunge your spoon into 3 scoops of vanilla, chocolate, and coffee-infused ice creams drizzled in 3 unforgettable sauces—marshmallow, warm chocolate fudge, and red berry—atop a warm ultimate fudge brownie. I’m not judging, I’d do the same thing.
