The Upside Down isn’t anyplace you want to go. But this Stranger Things Upside Down Sundae is definitely something you want in your life for your Stranger Things 3 watch party!

Upside Down Sundae Stranger Things 3

We’re gearing up for an epic day of Stranger Things binging since I got talked into watching this one! And no, I don’t do a lot of recipes on this site. You are correct. 

But when you’re planning an event like we are you go ahead and share with the fandom!

That’s right: our big 4th of July plans revolve around eating a bunch of 80s era foods and topping it all off with these Upside Down Sundaes inspired by Stranger Things. 

As easy to make as you think- which, if you know me, is the way I “cook.”

Thankfully- not THAT Upside Down.

This one is a whole lot sweeter!

How To Make An Upside Down Sundae

Start from the top and work your way up!

Drop a cherry into the bottom of your bowl or glass. 

Stranger Things Upside Down Sundae Starts With the Cherry

Fill a few inches of the glass with whipped cream. 

And it’s way ok to be generous with it!

It’s probably a good idea to add more than you think- the weight of the nuts and ice cream is going to flatten the whipped cream anyway.

Top with your favorite chopped nuts. 

Again- generosity is the name of the game here! We had chopped walnuts in ours, but you could use just about any nut that works for your family!

Now add the layers of whatever you want: fudge, caramel, hot chocolate, strawberry sauce. 

We went with caramel and fudge. Why choose when you can have both?

Finally, top with ice cream and put the cone on top!

We had vanilla, so vanilla it was. 

But I think Eleven eats strawberry ice cream so that might be fun to try!

If ice cream isn’t your jam, we also made Joyce’s Alphabet Lights Brownies. And they are delicious (and also super easy to make). 

And don’t forget to come back and fangirl with us when we recap Stranger Things 3 soon.
