Idea from Pinterest: Sundae Toppings

This afternoon we are invited to an Last Day of School/Summer Kickoff ice cream party. We were going to a neighbors house and I wanted to bring Nathan's toppings with me so he could make his own Sundae.  I think the best part of a Sundae is putting on your own toppings (other then eating it). While browsing on Pinterest I  saw an idea of putting different toppings in a each compartment of an ice tray. That is 12 different compartments and I don't have 12 different toppings, so I decided to use a 6 count muffin pan and cupcake liners.

 Top Left to Right: Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips, Nonpareils, Chocolate Sprinkles
Bottom Left: to Right:  Marshmallows, crushed K-Toos (like Oreros), Rainbow Sprinkles

This way I knew I could keep Nathan safe without cross contamination and let him enjoy a Sundae. I think he actually had more fun making it then eating it.

Here are the items I added to his bowl before we went to the party.

Vanilla ice cream, Soy Whip and Chocolate Syrup.

We used to use that soy whip, but FYI it now has a may contain dairy warning on it. Gordon Food Service (GFS) sells Rich's whipped topping in the carton (the one in the tub still has dairy) that is dairy free.

have you ever had issues with the k-toos? my son also has egg, dairy, wheat and peanut allergies, all of them pretty severe, and i was wondering how he would do with those, given the cross-contamination warnings...
