An ice cream craving can hit at any time, even when it's chilly outside. But how do you satisfy your needs when you're already wrapped up in a blanket? Easily.
Regardless of the season, ice cream is produced year-round. In fact, nearly 9% of U.S. dairy milk is made into ice cream. Seasonal favorites like pumpkin spice and peppermint fly off the shelves, but ice cream on its own isn't always as enticing when it's snowing outside.
Ice cream pairs well with a number of hot beverages and warm toppings that will play nicely together to create a balance between hot and cold. Here are five recipes for you to try out this fall and winter.
Try an affogato!
Affogato means "drowned" in Italian, and this dessert is literally drowned in espresso. Scoop a cup of your favorite gelato and pour a shot of hot espresso over it. If you're feeling fancy, try it with some shavings of dark chocolate or hazelnuts.
If coffee isn't your thing, make an affogato with hot chocolate
Play with seasonal flavors like pumpkin spice, white chocolate, or even peppermint when the snow starts to fall.
Maybe a mulled wine ice cream sundae?
How about a caramel apple cider float?
With the change of the seasons, many ice cream vendors shut down shop. But there's no need when there are plenty of options for seasonal treats! Order ice cream cups, containers, spoons, and more from Frozen Dessert Supplies to keep your customers coming well through the winter.
