Ice Cream Party on the Dock

Thank you Brawny® Tear-A-Square® for sponsoring this post. Think of all the ways you can Put a Square There! Nothing says summertime to me quite like ice cream. It’s the quintessential summer dessert. I have so many happy memories of ice cream sundaes after a day in the sun, so I decided to host a…

Captain Marvel Sundae

Strawberry and caramel is an underrated dessert combo. I wanted an all-American dessert for my Captain Marvel dinner party and what’s more American than an ice cream sundae? I chose a blondie as my base, since Carol is a badass blonde superhero. I topped that with strawberry ice cream, caramel sauce, sliced strawberry, and Captain…

Dark Chocolate Mint Hot Fudge Sauce

Delicious over ice cream, brownies, crepes, and more! I adore mint and chocolate. It’s one of my favorite flavor combinations. This luscious dark chocolate mint hot fudge sauce has the most wonderful texture – not too thin, not too thick – and isn’t overly sweet. This hot fudge sauce takes just a few minutes to…

Amaretto Milkshakes

Disaronno goes down so smooth in a vanilla milkshake!  Why don’t I make milkshakes more often? This really hit the spot! None of my guests believed me that there was alcohol in this milkshake. Each milkshake has a shot of amaretto in an otherwise vanilla milkshake. Amaretto is an almond liquor that goes down so nice, it’s…

Ice Cream Board

In an effort to post more entertaining ideas, I give you the Ice Cream Board. Think cheese board but instead of crackers and charcuterie, we have chocolate chips and cookies and everything else needed for a fabulous summer soiree. I’m going to confess this right off the bat: I technically used gelato. What can I…

Frozen Bananas

The perfect summertime treat! My family has an inside joke about frozen bananas. Once at Disneyland we were all picking afternoon treats and my dad saw a cart and said, “Ooh, how good does a frozen banana sound?” He was so excited to see what that meant and completely dismayed when the cast member handed…

Grilled Banana Boats

This has got to be the most fun dessert to make ever. It takes all of six minutes, zero prep time, and is as much of an activity as it is dessert. The best part is that you can customize them a million different ways! Young or old, these are a blast to build and…

Dark Chocolate Hot Fudge

Some sundaes are worth melting for! This deep, dark hot fudge sauce keeps for ages and heats up perfectly each and every time, making it a great make-ahead dessert when you’re serving ice cream sundaes. I served this with vanilla bean gelato, amaretto whipped cream, slivered almonds, Ice Queen sprinkles, and a white chocolate snowflake…

The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway Hot Fudge Sundae

Some desserts are worth melting for! You forget how great a hot fudge sundae can be. This is anything but ordinary. When I saw Ice Queen sprinkles by Fancy Sprinkles, I knew I had to serve an ice cream sundae at my Frozen dinner party. I added slivered almonds and amaretto whipped cream as an…

Roasted Banana Popsicles

Get ready for The Year of the Pop. I got a Zoku popsicle mold as a birthday gift a couple of years ago and have made precious few pops but that’s about to change. I often crave things I’ve never had and this is one of them. Never in my life have I eaten a roasted…

Stracciatella Ice Cream

I’ve hardly published any ice cream recipes here on The Rose Table, which is pretty shocking since almost anyone who frequents my house eats homemade ice cream all the time. I’ll tell you why: I always have the ingredients on hand and I keep my ice cream maker bowl in the freezer so it’s literally…

Tropical Pineapple Sundae

Anyone else feel like taking a tropical vacation without paying for an expensive plane ticket? Me too! I’ve found the most gorgeous pineapple at my store the last few weeks and decided to turn one into a fun sundae. The pineapple topping is only FOUR ingredients and would be equally delicious over a waffle. Can…
