Old-Fashioned Dusty Miller Sundaes

When I was a little girl, my grandparents owned property at a local lake and I would remember visiting on the weekends throughout the summer.  On our way home, my grandpa would stop at a local ice cream shop and we would get Dusty Miller Sundaes!  I wanted to create something for my kids since I LOVED them as a child.  My grandpa is no longer with us and so this treat is extra special for me to share with my kids.

With a few simple ingredients, you can make your own Dusty Miller!  Having this as a special movie night or holiday treat can be the perfect new tradition in your family!

All it takes is FOUR ingredients!

  • Vanilla Ice Cream (vanilla bean is our favorite)
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Smuckers Marshmallow Ice Cream Topping – I’ve used several difference varieties and brands and this is the best.
  • Malt (if you can’t find it in stores, you can use malted milk)

Here’s how to make your own Dusty Millers:

I’m gonna tell you it doesn’t get much easier – you just need to layer the ingredients into a fancy parfait glass!

I used roughly a tablespoon of Smucker’s marshmallow ice cream topping and malt.

You’re going to want to create two layers depending on the size of the parfait glass you are using.

That’s it!!  Super easy and SUPER DELICIOUS!

This would be fun to set up as a ice cream bar for the kids to invite friends over and and make a movie or game night!  It doesn’t need to be fancy to be amazing!

Enjoy the little moments and enjoy your new Dusty Miller’s!

Have you ever a Dusty Miller Parfait?  The malt in it is my FAVORITE!  That’s what truly makes it an old-fashioned Dusty Miller!

I’d love to know what your favorite treat was as a child that had an amazing memory attached to it!
