#LoveMadeVisible: A Volcano Dessert, by Laura Marinakos

Vanilla, chocolate, strawberry
Pick any flavor you love!
In fact, pick two, or even three
No need to stop with one!
Grab a bowl
Make sure it’s large
Try not to make a mess!
Fill it up with melty cream
This stickiness is fun!
Hot fudge, caramel, butterscotch
Feel free to pour them all!
Watch the stream run down the sides
Look, a volcano dessert!
A burst of whipped cream
Is all that you need!
And a sprinkle of peanuts
You must!
One more step
You’re almost done
Add a cherry or two to the top!
