F&W's Grace Parisi reimagines the flavors of a German chocolate cake into this decadent sundae.

How can anyone not love ice cream sundaes? And the same goes for German chocolate cake. It just "goggles the mind" as a friend of mine says. For those who fall into the above category, skip ahead to tomorrow's post about tofu and millet. But for those of you who do love cake and ice cream, I urge you to try this deconstructed German chocolate cake sundae. A good sundae has three crucial components: ice cream, a gooey sauce and a crunchy topping. This one has coconut ice cream, a pecan-coconut caramel sauce (like the classic cake filling) and crumbled chocolate wafers. Feel free to try different ice creams and nuts—it's a template waiting to be played with. SEE RECIPE »
