Ice Cream Sundae Kit
If you are looking for a quick easy gift to put together to give to someone for a holiday gift or to give away for a raffle prize, this easy Ice Cream Sundae Kit makes a great gift.
First you will need a basket to put everything in. I bought mine at the Dollar Store, they had a great selection of holiday baskets of different sizes and shapes, perfect for this project.
Next you will need to put together a variety of ice cream toppings. A great place to find inexpensive toppings is in the bulk food section of a grocery store like WinCo. I bought mini chocolate chips, gummy bears, multi-colored sprinkles, peanuts, and toasted coconut.
I put the toppings into snack sized ziploc bags and then decorated the top of each bag with a small piece of holiday scrapbook paper that I folded over the top of each bag and stapled in place.
You can also add jars of hot fudge sauce, caramel, etc., to the basket. Here is my recipe for homemade hot fudge sauce.
Last but not least you can add ice cream cones or waffle bowls to the basket. You could even add nice glass ice cream sundae bowls instead.
I put some shredded red paper in the bottom of my basket but everything just kind of sunk down into the basket so I wadded up some red tissue paper to put under the shredded paper and that seemed to do the trick.
I also made some pretty labels to put on the front of the baskets (the fancy labels I found in the wedding section at Michael's).
These baskets are great as last minute gifts or for people you don't know what to buy for. You could make them for holiday bazaars or give them away as raffle prizes at holiday brunches or parties.
