Sundaes with Senior Citizens: At-Home Ice Cream Parlor

Root beer float, hot fudge sundae, banana split with a cherry on top.  Spark nostalgia for old-fashioned ice cream parlors by creating your own Sundaes with Senior Citizens. There’s nothing quite like cold ice cream on a hot summer’s day to bring back those happy childhood memories. 

How do you make your own ice cream bar?

Arrange cups, bowls, or cones on one end of a table. Next, set up tubs of ice cream, each with its own scoop in a cup of warm water. Lay out the topping choices in bowls or muffin tins. Make sure each topping has its own serving spoon. Place napkins and utensils at the end.  Enjoy!

Sundaes with Senior Citizens

Ice cream socials are a great way for Seniors to keep cool and socialize. When planning your sundae social, stick to the primary flavors—vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry are crowd-pleasers. Let the ice cream sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes before serving. This makes it easier to scoop. Then, arrange the toppings with spoons so guests can choose what they want.

Toppings Galore 

You can set out little bowls for an ice cream sundae party or use a muffin tin with different toppings in each bowl or tin. There’s no limit when it comes to toppings—here are a few topping ideas to get you started:

  • Whipped cream 
  • Bananas
  • Cherries
  • Crushed pineapple 
  • Chopped nuts
  • Chocolate chips
  • M&Ms
  • Crushed Oreos 
  • Sprinkles
  • Mini Marshmallows 
  • Hot fudge
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Caramel syrup
