5 Bold Ice Cream Ideas to Beat the Heat

I’m always looking for ways to sneak my favorite flavors into new treats. Ice cream is no exception. I love the classics too. Nothing beats a good vanilla or chocolate in a sundae.
If you are looking for something a bit different then these flavors might tickle your taste buds.

This cookie sandwich teases your taste buds with tangy dried blueberries, vanilla cookie and cold, creamy ice cream.

Root Beer is a great flavor to enjoy as a cold ice cream treat. Crush a few root beer barrels and mix in and sprinkle on top for even more root beer goodness!

Everyone loves the flavor of cinnamon with apples. A graham cracker crust cradles apple ice cream. Sweet apple butter enhances the flavor.

Boozy Bacon Cherry Crumble #SundaySupper

Boozy Bacon Cherry Crumble

Boozy Bacon Cherry Crumble with dark sweet cherries, bourbon maple syrup, oats and BACON! Head down the road to Delicioustown!

I know people that salivate at the word, “Bacon”. They drool like puppies at the smell of sizzling hickory-smoked strips of meaty goodness.

Okay, maybe the “they” is me. But I’m not alone.
Lehigh Valley was the home to A&B meats, a leading producer of processed pork products.
Our minor league baseball team is the Iron Pigs. Of course one of their mascots resembles a pig and another a strip of bacon.

I’ve been known to sneak bacon into recipes before like Cinnamon Bacon Donuts, Waffles, Potato Hash, Pretzels, Hot Bacon Dressing and Biscuits.

For today’s recipe I pulled out all the stops. Dark sweet cherries, maple sugar, bourbon maple syrup, oats and a double shot of bacon. You’ll get bacon every scoop of fruit AND in the crumble topping!
