Author Notes: This is not so much a recipe as it is assembling ingredients. What better way to get to dessert? Summertime staples in our house include IBC black cherry soda, Blue Bell vanilla ice cream and our Great Aunt Chris' soda fountain chocolate sauce. (Aunt Chris made this sauce every day at the drug store soda fountain where she worked in 1934.) Putting it all together was my oldest son's brilliant idea; he's our smart one, for sure. Incidentally, those are also our wintertime staples if you were wondering about the Christmas lights in the background. We make sure to have our tree down before Memorial Day. - ourlastsupper
