My mother told me a story about a time when she was a youngster and her older sister, Grace,  took her to the ice cream parlor.  “Would you like an ice cream sundae?” her sister asked.  “No,” she replied, “I want one now!”  That always makes me smile and I think of it when I make anything with ice cream.


1/4 gallon chocolate ice cream
12 ounces cherry vanilla soda (prefer natural)
1/4 cup chopped malted milk balls
4 maraschino cherries



  1. In 4 medium size glasses, place two to three scoops of chocolate ice cream into each.
  2. Slowly pour cherry vanilla soda over ice cream and top with chopped malted milk balls and a maraschino cherry.
  3. Serve with long spoons and a straw.
