I had a birthday over the summer. I turned 37, which seems like a big old nothing birthday because it's just in the middle of the thirties and no big deal at all. But anyway, Joe and the girls made one of my favorite desserts just for me, and so I enjoyed my special night.
They made me a big brownie sundae and of course it had smooth, rich hot fudge drizzled over top. Is there a dessert that screams “comfort food” more than that? I can't think of one.
Unfortunately, the hot gooey-ness of the hot fudge combined with the crisp freeze of the ice cream made my teeth scream out in pain. It first started happening when I was a teen, and my dentist at the time recommended that I switch to Sensodyne® toothpaste.
I did switch, and I have used Sensodyne® twice daily ever since. (If you're a longtime reader, you might remember that I switched for a campaign a few years ago, but I quickly switched back.)
Thanks to Sensodyne® Repair & Protect, I can now enjoy this delicious dessert without the sensitivity twinge!
So in the spirit of my love for Sensodyne®, I have a recipe to share with you for my special birthday dessert, the hot fudge brownie sundae. The first step is to prepare the hot fudge.
You want it to be hot but not boiling hot, so make it first and let it cool off while you prepare the brownies.
The next step is to make the brownies.
So take the slightly warm brownie out of the pan and place it into a bowl. Cut it in half so that the ice cream can sink down in between the pieces.
Add a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream on top of the brownie, and drizzle generously with hot fudge sauce. If you're feeling extra fancy, add some whipped cream and a maraschino cherry on top.
That's it. You have a hot fudge brownie sundae, and it only took you half of the afternoon to make it.
I kid. It's not that involved.
Back to Sensodyne®.
Sensodyne® is the #1 dentist recommended brand for sensitive teeth. All Sensodyne® toothpaste formulations include a clinically proven ingredient that works to help relieve tooth pain due to sensitive teeth, when the product is used as directed*.
A lot of people seem to think that they only need to use Sensodyne® Repair & Protect when they have a sensitivity flare up, but that is really not the case. It combines the ability to manage tooth sensitivity with the benefits of an everyday toothpaste. It's a win-win.
If eating a hot fudge brownie sundae makes you cringe, you might want to try Sensodyne® Repair & Protect toothpaste and use it twice daily for effective and lasting relief for sensitive teeth*!
