Santa Sundae

HO! HO! HO! and Merry Christmas from my itsy bitsy foodies family to yours.

My older son just turned three years old and this is the first year that he has really keyed into Santa Claus.  He is intrigued, obsessed, curious and excited.  Every knock on the door leads to whoops and hollers: is it Santa Claus?!  So, I thought it would be fun to make him a Santa Claus ice cream sundae.

This is a quick, easy and festive dessert that can also become a fun art project for your older kids.  I decided to keep the design simple, with a Santa Claus hat ice cream cone and a paper belt adorning the red paper cup.  Use the ice cream of your choice.  Happy Holidays!
