Just because it’s hot doesn’t mean you can’t still make a show-stopping dessert. Check out six delicious ice cream recipes that are worth of any restaurant’s menu.

Skillet Hot Fudge Cake

This delicious chocolate cake floats on a layer of hot fudge! Serve with vanilla ice cream for a show-stopping finale to a perfect meal!

Stephanie Izard's Football-Appropriate Sundae

Chef Stephanie Izard tops her sundae with a beer and orange peel-infused toffee, a homemade peanut butter brittle, and a pretzel whipped cream! Yum!

Big Gay Ice Cream's Salty Pimp Sundae

This decadent dessert from NYC’s Big Gay Ice Cream elevates a basic hot fudge sundae to a mind-blowingly tasty treat. The dish features “awesomesauce,” a richly layered chocolate sauce with hints of cinnamon, chipotle chili, cayenne and sea salt.

Michael Schlow's Bananas Foster

Michael Schlow's throwback recipe is from his early career when he would prepare Bananas Foster tableside. For a spin on the classic ice cream and banana recipe, Michael adds deliciously salty Marcona almonds as a garnish.

Pineapple'd Foster

Flambe pineapples with butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and rum, then serve over vanilla ice cream with a sprinkling of toasted coconut.

Manhattan-Style Cherries Jubilee

For this super-easy but impressive recipe, sautee cherries with butter, brown sugar, orange zest and salt, then add bourbon and (carefully) light it on fire! Serve over vanilla ice cream.
