A fall inspired twist on the classic ice cream float! Brown Butter Apple Cinnamon Ice Cream pairs perfectly with Cream Soda and Salted Honey Caramel for a delicious and buttery treat!
I feel like I should be wearing a big poodle skirt, sitting in a dinner sipping this dessert with my main squeeze!
Which reminds me, my 50’s get up, complete with slick pony tail on top of my head, ginormous red poodle skirt with a stenciled poodle on it, and my crisp, white Keds (if those don’t take you back, then I don’t know what will) was by far my preferred Halloween costume. With Minnie Mouse coming a close second. Which my three year old niece will be this Halloween! GAH! I can hardly contain myself to see how adorable she will be. Doesn’t take much but Minnie is going to take her over the top.
Please tell me you have Halloween plans that include handing out candy out to random children that approach your house, then stealing all the top notch candy from your kids stash? When I was younger, no matter how well I tried to guard my collection of sugary treats, my Dad and Uncle would find a way in to steal my Snickers and Reese’s. Honestly, take those. Just don’t touch my Heath!
Since there might be a lack of sugar today (oh kidding!), ice cream floats are just the answer. I have a thing for ice cream if you weren’t aware of yet. Which is a good problem to have. Unless you have cravings for it daily without the metabolism of my twelve year old self. Then its not a great problem. But that is here nor there.
The only issue is that we all need to enjoy in ice cream floats with brown butter. Those words are sorta magical these days. Sorta like how milkshakes bring all the boys to the yard, except its brown butter. When butter is browned it because caramel like and nutty, and 100% irresistible!
I used the Brown Butter Apple Cinnamon Ice Cream from last week. You thought I wouldn’t try to find another way to tell you all that you need that ice cream in your life? Well this is your sign! Then we add cream soda, which is the cream of the crop of soda if I have to say myself. The sweet vanilla flavor takes me back to the age of 5 while enjoying it at my Grandma’s house. Those were the days.
And to finish off our dessert, we drizzle homemade salted honey caramel which I would gladly take on its own. Notes of butterscotch and a touch of honey only help to make this dessert the sweetest part of today!
