dessert supplies

It is time to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall. Gone are the hot, sweltering days of the summer months, and in come the chilly days and the crisp fall air. But one thing that won't change with the changing of the seasons are the delicious fall treats that are now available! Think you can't enjoy an ice cream cone in the days before Halloween? Think again! The average American will consume ice cream 28.5 times each year, and that's not just during summer, either!

Here are some delicious seasonal treats you need to try this fall. Get your dessert supplies ready!

Apple everything

Did you know that apples only get picked once a year, and then are flash frozen and distributed throughout the rest of the year? So take advantage of the delicious flavors you have available right now and get to baking! The opportunities are endless when it comes to apples -- apple crisp with some peanut butter ice cream, apple pie topped with chocolate gelato, apple turnovers with vanilla ice cream, or an ice cream sundae with caramel and stewed apples.

Pumpkin

This little orange vegetable is not just for Thanksgiving! While pumpkin pies are great when topped with some ice cream and whipped cream, try something different this year and grab some pumpkin soft serve. Nothing tastes more fall festive than a pumpkin waffle cone, we insist!

Caramel

The cooler weather means it's time for richer, more indulgent desserts. Chocolate and caramel have always gone great together, and fall is no exception. Indulge your sweet tooth by loading up a spoon with some caramel and chocolate cake topped with an ice cream of your choice. Pro tip: salted caramel sea salt is especially popular at this time of year, and it goes great with chocolate everything.

Breads

Take all those fun fall breads that are popular at this time of year and give them a twist-- stuff them with ice cream. A fun alternative to ice cream cookie sandwiches, this method works exceptionally great with pumpkin chocolate chip bread, banana walnut, and even slices of apple cake!
