Ingredients

Heaping 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

1/4 cup heavy cream 

Red food coloring, for the ganache

Blue food coloring, for the ganache

1 large scoop store-bought orange sherbet 

1 large scoop store-bought strawberry ice cream 

4 Rainbow Crispy Treats, recipe follows

2 tablespoons marshmallow cream 

1 tablespoon mini gummy bears 

4 tablespoons store-bought whipped cream 

1 tablespoon pearl sprinkles 

1 1/2 teaspoons small gold and silver dragee 

1 maraschino cherry 

Rainbow Crispy Treats:

4 tablespoons salted butter, plus more for the cake pan

One 10-ounce bag regular marshmallows 

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 

4 cups fruit-flavored cereal, such as Fruity Pebbles

2 cups rice cereal 

One 10-ounce bag mini rainbow marshmallows 

1/4 cup rainbow sprinkles 

4 ounces white chocolate

Directions

  1. Add the white chocolate chips to a heatsafe bowl. Heat the cream in a saucepan until warm and bubbles begin to form around the edges. Pour the warmed cream over the chocolate chips in the bowl and allow it to sit for 2 minutes.
  2. Stir the mixture until smooth and divide between 2 small bowls. Color one bowl with a drop of red food coloring to turn the ganache red. Color the other bowl with a drop of blue food coloring to turn the ganache blue. Set the ganache aside while you make the sundae.
  3. Place the orange sherbet scoop in a glass ice cream dish or bowl followed the strawberry ice cream scoop. Add 2 Rainbow Crispy Treats on top. In the center of the bowl, use 2 spoons to dollop the marshmallow cream onto the ice cream. Nestle in 2 more Rainbow Crispy Treats.
  4. Spoon the gummy bears onto the marshmallow cream followed by the whipped cream. Top the whipped cream with the pearl sprinkles and the gold and silver dragee. Using a spoon, drizzle the red ganache over the whipped cream followed by the blue ganache. Top the sundae with a cherry!

Rainbow Crispy Treats:

Yield: 36 treats
  1. Thoroughly grease a straight-sided 9-inch square cake pan with butter.
  2. Melt the butter in a large, heavy-bottomed pot set over medium heat. Cook, swirling the butter around in the pot, until it foams and turns a medium golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the regular marshmallows and stir until they're completely melted. Add the salt and give it another stir.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat and pour in the cereal. Gently fold it into the marshmallow until well combined. Next, add the mini rainbow marshmallows and fold them into the mix. Some will melt, but some will remain whole; that is the way you want it.
  4. Turn the mixture into the buttered cake pan and press flat using a wooden spoon or spatula. Sprinkle with the rainbow sprinkles over the top while it is still warm. Let cool completely, about 20 minutes.
  5. When the crispy treats are cool, place the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over boiling water. Heat, stirring, until the chocolate is melted and completely smooth. Set aside for a minute to cool.
  6. Drizzle the white chocolate over the cooled crispy treats and let the chocolate set for 5 minutes. Cut into 1 1/2-inch squares.
