“When I was a little girl my gramma used to make us donut sundaes with lefover donuts and ice cream, this is my version for when you have leftover donuts! I am posting this with all the variations we like, but for example 1 quart of ice cream will fill 6 donuts nicely. For one person this is a great snack but they do keep frozen, if you can keep the kids away from them! The possibilities are endless...enough to put any kid in a sugar high!!!”
