6 FALL DESSERTS WE’RE FALLING IN LOVE WITH
Fall is the perfect time to enjoy the sweeter things in life! So, we put together a list of our favorite fall desserts in hopes of inspiring you to create some delicious memories to share with family and friends this year. So get to baking! After all, Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we could all use a little more practice (wink!).
CARAMEL APPLE ICE CREAM CUPS
This one is great for parties because it’s easy to make, delicious and, with a little practice, will make you look like the Martha Stewart of your group of friends. Scoop out the center of an apple and scoop in some of our classic Butter Pecan ice cream. Presentation is everything with this one, so drizzle caramel over the dessert and surrounding dish, top with candied pecans and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
APPLE CIDER FLOATS
There are so many ways to enjoy apple cider—hot, chilled, frozen—or our new personal favorite…with ice cream! So, the next time you go to the cider mill (or the store), remember to grab an extra gallon so you can make an apple cider float of your own to enjoy at home.
Simply chill a mug in the freezer and pour some apple cider over our award-winning French Vanilla ice cream. We suggest using sparkling cider for some extra frothy goodness with each sip. Take your float to the next level by garnishing it with a fresh apple slice, whipped cream, caramel sauce and cinnamon for an over-the-top treat that rivals any pumpkin spice latte.
PUMPKIN PIE MILKSHAKE
Speaking of pumpkin spice lattes, you’ve gotta try this fun twist on the classic PSL! Get out your blender and shake things up by adding a 1/2 cup of pumpkin pie puree, 1 cup of milk and a few scoops of our Creamery Blend Vanilla ice cream with a few dashes of pumpkin pie spice, all spice and nutmeg to your taste. Pour everything into a mason jar, add some whipped cream and sprinkle some cinnamon on top for a trendy treat that will have all your friends asking you for the recipe.
CINNAMON SUGAR DONUT ICE CREAM SANDWICH
Cinnamon sugar donuts and ice cream sandwiches! Boom. Mic drop. We know. It really is as easy to make as you would think. Warm up a cinnamon sugar donut, cut it down the middle and smush each half together with our Vanilla Bean ice cream in the middle. Feeling extra fancy? Drizzle some caramel on top or roll the edges in sprinkles, candied nuts or mini chocolate chips. Just don’t forget to share some with us!
ICE CREAM DONUT HOLES
This fall dessert might be a little more involved, but like they say, all good things are worth waiting for! Just don’t wait too long because these desserts are meant to be enjoyed right off the pan. To start, get yourself some biscuit dough and cut each biscuit in half. Delicately fold the biscuit halves around one-inch scoops of your favorite Hudsonville Ice Cream and freeze. While you’re waiting, finish decorating for Halloween, take our pumpkin decorating challenge or watch some Hocus Pocus. After about an hour, flash fry the dough in canola oil and coat each morsel with cinnamon sugar or a powdered sugar glaze. Then treat yourself as a sweet reward for all your hard work.
PUMPKIN PIE A LA MODE
Take a piece of pumpkin pie (warm or chilled) and put a generous scoop of our Creamery Blend Vanilla ice cream on top. While it may be simple, this dessert is so good there’s a reason it’s a classic.
