The most-climbed peak in North America, New Hampshire’s Mount Monadnock, serves as the inspiration for this mammoth sundae at Ava Marie Handmade Chocolates in the nearby town of Peterborough. Here, with help from creator Ava Marie Mazzone, we embark on a step-by-step ascent from base camp to the summit of this mountainous dessert. avamariechocolates.com
Roaming among the clouds: a milk chocolate moose.
The summit disappears in a cloud of whipped cream.
The Mount Monadnock holds about 35 scoops, with up to five flavors as the recommended combo. Any morethan that, and you’ve got a flavor avalanche.
Surrounding and filling in around the edges, candy-coated chocolate rocks provide textural contrast (and something to nibble on).
Trails of warm syrup melt meandering paths on all sides. Choose two from a lineup that includes hot fudge,caramel, peanut butter, and marshmallow.
