Hot Fudge Sundae
The classic hot fudge sundae is a variation on the classic and is often a creation of vanilla ice cream, sprinkles, hot chocolate sauce (hence the "hot fudge"), whipped cream, nuts, and a single bright-red maraschino cherry on top.

Occasionally peanut butter or other products replace the hot fudge.
