Everyone has a version of Chinese Sundaes.  Many of you might call them Hawaiian Haystacks. This dish is fun to fix and serve. I love all the combinations of the different flavors, especially the crunchy noodles and pineapple!

Maybe you want your kids to start cooking more.   A bonus with Chinese Sundaes it can be made just the way you like it.  Each person can customize there dish!  It can be made meatless with extra veggies! I like it sweet with lots of coconut and pineapple! You can find this recipe in my first book under Tradition!
