Check out these five ice cream desserts, perfect for satisfying that sweet tooth on hot summer days.
Brown Butter-Pecan-Bourbon Ice CreamThis rich, decadent, grown-ups-only ice cream is absolutely divine. Why? The custard features the usual suspects–cream, egg yolks, sugar, and milk–with rich, browned butter, nutty toasted pecans, and warm bourbon. There's no need for an old-fashioned ice cream churn, since this recipe can be prepared with the ice cream attachment on your trusty stand mixer.
Strawberry Smoothie Ice-Cream PieThis frozen pie is a true flavor explosion featuring fresh strawberries, blueberries, bananas, and vanilla ice cream. Process each fruit with powdered sugar, combine with ice cream, and layer on top of a pie crust made from crunchy crushed waffle cones.
Ice Cream TrufflesIf you're searching for the perfect bite-sized ice cream treat–look no further. These little gems are super easy to make and combine the best of all worlds: candy bars, melted chocolate, and vanilla ice cream. Simply scoop vanilla ice cream to form 1-inch balls, then roll or dip each one in the topping of your choice, freeze again, and serve.
Hot Fudge Sundae ShakeForget the drive-thru—there's no need to leave home when you can create a hot fudge sundae shake in your own kitchen in just 10 minutes. First, mix perfectly sweet vanilla ice cream in a blender until it's a thick, irresistible consistency. Then, layer in a glass with ooey-gooey hot fudge and caramel. Top with whipped cream and crumbled up brownies as an added treat.
