Summary
July 25 is the day that’s been set aside to honor the dessert that’s been a staple of the American menu for over a century.

Thick, rich hot fudge sauce turns ordinary vanilla ice cream into something magical when the cold ice cream starts to melt with the heat from the hot fudge and is topped with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Sunday Blue Law restrictions in a handful of states included a ban on selling soda water on Sundays - which nixed the ability to buy ice cream sodas on the Sabbath day.

That led to a Los Angeles ice cream parlor owner, Clarence Clifton Brown, to create the hot fudge sundae in 1906. It is said that Brown experimented for two months before hitting on just the right recipe.

Using fluted glasses that allowed the melted ice cream and hot fudge to drip down the sides, Brown created the first hot fudge sundae and it was a big hit with customers.

Did you Know?

The most expensive hot fudge sundae can be ordered at Serendipity3 in New York City. The sundae is covered in 23-karat gold leaf and must be ordered 24-hours in advance. It sells for a cool $1,000.
