Just because the weather is getting cooler doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a great ice cream sundae this time of year. Justify your ice cream cravings by turning  your typical sundae into a unique seasonal treat!

Try some of these seasonal toppings to make your ice cream sundae autumn appropriate!

Candy Corn

Candy corn is a seasonal treat that almost feels wrong to eat any other time of year! Adding candy corn to your sundae is guaranteed to put you in the fall mood. For a more interesting mix try using different varieties of candy corn, like the kind that has little pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns included.


Chopped Apples with Caramel

Apples are an essential fall food! Pick up your favorite variety, the sweeter the better; dice them up in to small pieces and use as a tasty and healthy topping! If apples alone don’t quite satisfy your sweet tooth just add some caramel to create a candied apple effect.

Halloween Candy

You’re bound to have some leftover Halloween candy after the kids bring home their yearly sugar harvest! Grab a handful of assorted candies, crush them up, sprinkle over vanilla ice cream and enjoy the variety of sweet flavors.

Pumpkin Pie

Pie and ice cream are fantastic desserts on their own, why not just enjoy them together? Take a piece of pumpkin pie, cut it up into smaller bits and put it on your ice cream. Whipped cream is a great addition to this variation as well.


Seasonal Spices

Break out the nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice and really give your sundae the fall kick that it needs.

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds?

This may not be for everyone, but true sundae enthusiasts should give it a try. Toasted pumpkin seeds add a salty component to the already sweet ice cream making for an interesting combination.

Cranberry Jell-O

Change up your classic Thanksgiving dessert by adding Cranberry Jell-O to your ice cream.
