It's probably no surprise that during the summer and on the weekends, the focus shifts to spending more time as a family. Just on Saturday and Sunday alone families spend four times more time together than they do during the weekdays. With my kids out of school, summer gives me even more of a chance to slow down and spend more time together.
We enjoyed celebrating our family togetherness this summer with sweet treats like #SundaySundaes using Hershey's Syrups. Our most recent creation is this Blondie Sundae topped with Pan Fried Bananas, Walnuts and warm Hershey's Caramel Syrup.
The rich and smooth Hershey's Syrup comes in a variety of flavors including chocolate, special dark chocolate, strawberry and caramel to make each sundae unique. Hershey's Syrup is good mixed into milk too. My kids drink strawberry milk made with Hershey's Strawberry Syrup practically every morning around here. But let's get back to this delicious #HersheysSummer Blondie Sundae recipe!
Start with your favorite blondies (homemade or store bought). Slice some bananas and pan fry them on medium in a small pan drizzled with a little bit of Hershey's Caramel Syrup, turning once, until the bananas have softened and are slightly browned. These caramelized bananas are yummy on their own and I was tempted to eat the whole batch right then and there.
Once your bananas are fried how you like them, add in more Hershey's Caramel Syrup to the pan. I didn't measure mine, just kinda eyeballed it for how many sundaes we were making. Maybe about 1/3 cup of Hershey's Syrup would be enough for a few sundaes. That's one of the bonuses about sundaes, make it how you like it and throw measurements out the window and just have fun with it. Add in some walnuts to your caramel syrup and warm the Hershey's Caramel Syrup mixture on low heat until slightly warm, not boiling.

Now it's time to plate your sundae. First put the blondie, then add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and top with your Hershey's Caramel Syrup mixture. I sprinkled the top of my sundae with a pinch of coarse sea salt and a few more walnut pieces for even more dimension. Hershey's Caramel Syrup is delicious on ice cream and even more delicious used in this blondie sundae recipe.
