What could be better on a summer day than to sit at Florean Forescue's in Diagon Alley and eat free ice cream sundaes all day? Clearly Harry agrees:

"Harry didn't have to do his homework under the blankets by flashlight anymore; now he could sit in the bright sunshine outside Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlor, finishing all his essays with occasional help from Florean Fortescue himself, who, apart from knowing a great deal about medieval witch burnings, gave Harry free sundaes every half an hour" (Prisoner of Azkaban 50).

In The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook, Dinah Bucholz includes several ideas of sundae creations Mr. Fortescue might have served to Harry at his ice cream parlor. We'll try out two of them today.

For a Triple Strawberry Burst Sundae:
Place 1 scoop of strawberry ice cream in a dish/sundae glass. Cover with chopped fresh strawberries and strawberry syrup. Repeat layering once if desired.

For a Nuts About Sundaes Sundae:
Place a scoop of pistachio ice cream in your dish. Sprinkle a handful of chopped nuts, and squirt in some chocolate syrup. Repeat layering once if desired.

These are some very tasty frozen treats. Check out The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook for recipes for even more sundaes! Enjoy!
