For caramel sauce
Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Light corn syrup 2 Tablespoon
Water 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Heavy cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Vanilla ice cream 1 Quart
Vanilla wafers 18
Walnut halves 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Heavy cream 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , whipped



1. In a small, heavy skillet, make Caramel Sauce by combining together sugar, corn syrup and 1/4 cup water.

2. Place the pan on heat and stir constantly, just until sugar dissolves.

3. Further, cook over very low heat (mixture should just barely bubble), uncovered, 30 to 40 minutes or until a light-amber color. Do not stir. Syrup should not be dark.

4. Remove the pan from heat.

5. Allow the syrup to cool slightly-€”about 5 minutes.

6. In syrup add 1 cup cream, slowly, stirring constantly until syrup is smooth. Let the mixture cool.

7. In each 6 chilled sherbet glasses, place a scoop of ice cream to make sundaes.

8. Cut wafers in half. Insert 6 halves into each scoop of ice cream.

9. Place walnut halves between wafers.

10. Top each sundae with 1 or 2 tablespoons Caramel Sauce.


11. Sprinkle whipped cream and walnut half on top.


12. Serve caramel walnut sundae chilled, passed with remaining sauce.
