Margot's Special Recipes: Super Simple Ice-cream Sundae

There are 3 main components to a sundae: 
-The ice-cream
-The sauce
-The garnish
The ice cream can be any flavour, the sauce can be whatever you want from caramel, to chocolate, to strawberry. The garnish can be strawberries, marshmallows, nuts, shaved coconut, chocolate...The sky is the limit, really.
The recipe I am showing you is something ANYONE can make, it's so easy (and so delicious) and you can find these ingredients already made at the supermarket.
What you will need:
-Any ice-cream (I am using French vanilla)
-Some dessert sauce (I am using pre-made chocolate sauce)
-Garnish of your choice (I am using a strawberry)
-Martini or Cocktail glass
Side note: 
You can make your own dessert sauce, which I can assure would be more delicious than the store-bought sauce. To make a chocolate sauce, melt some block chocolate in a heat-proof bowl over a saucepan filled with boiling water. Add 2 tablespoons of cream and mix slowly but efficiently. To make a strawberry sauce combine 2 cups of strawberries, 1 cup of caster or cane sugar and the juice of half a lime and blend in a blender on high and then moving down to medium. Blend until smooth and the sauce is ready.
