Here's a treat that I found in the Chicago Tribune Good Eating section a few years ago.

  1. Beat whipping cream and sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
  2. Set aside.
  3. Stir together milk and syrup in the bottom of a large glass.
  4. Add two-thirds of the ice cream, pushing it down into the milk mixture.
  5. Pour in club soda.
  6. Add one-half of the whipped cream, then the remaining ice cream, and then the remaining whipped cream.
  7. Top with the cherry and nuts, if desired.

What a lovely treat. it was excellent Hey Jude. I enjoyed it very much. Rich, thick, creamy, soda...yummy. I did substitute with coffee ice cream as I was out of chocolate. Thanks for sharing your decadent treat. I will be enjoying this again. Can't wait to try it with chocolate ice cream...Made for the Summer 09 - Comfort Cafe.

YUMMO!!!! I made this as directed and its great with the homemade whipping cream but for a quick fix from now on I will use the whipping cream in a can....Chocoalte sodas are the first thing I always order when we go to the ice cream parlor and this is a great clone! Thanks JJ for posting!!!
