Today was Day #12 of Chocolate and Brazil Theme Weeks.

When the weather gets hot, I start thinking about ice cream. What would a Brazilian-inspired acai ice cream, or a Brazilian ice cream sundae taste like? I wondered. Since it was Sunday, I made the latter.

The "Brazil" sundae had layers of coconut granola and chopped Brazil nuts, chocolate coconut ice cream, caramel rum tres leches ice cream, and coffee liqueur from Latin America. It was topped with a light drizzle of American-made Fox's U-Bet chocolate syrup.*

*H. Fox and Co., Inc. (Brooklyn, NY) is a century-old company that makes ice cream syrups and several other items. I had picked up a plastic squeeze bottle of Fox's U-Bet Original Chocolate Flavor Syrup during a deli visit in Berkeley, CA. U-Bet chocolate syrup is also famous for being a key ingredient in chocolate egg cream sodas.
