Homemade Ice Cream Toppings - Wed, 06/13/12 9:05 AM
5
A few days ago I found some old hard dried up raisins in the back of my kitchen closet. Rather than throw them away, I took them out and poured rum over them. Yesterday I poured it over vanilla ice cream, Yummmmm. They had softened up great. I'm thinking of variations, like adding bananas, or apples, or whatever. One winter I made a similar sauce of heating apples in rum.
 
Ideas?

I make a spicey chex mix with a lot of Cayenne pepper in it.  Lots of garlic and onion powder overtones and I use Kix, potato sticks, Cherios, and Bugles in addition to the Chex/peanuts stuff.  Crushed (make sure no pretzels), with or without a bit of caramel sauce, it makes a fine topping for ice cream..visually appealing and a nice salty/spice counterpoint

And I'd be willing to bet that those raisins soaked in rum would also go well with rice and onions, especially if you cook the rice in chicken broth

Why no pretzels with chex mix?

Nestle's Quick thinned with the desired amount of milk, then heated with about 2-3 Tblespns of Butter...Makes a fine Hot Fudge Sauce. I tend to use less milk and more butter !

NYNM.........um....the main reason is some folks around here are getting older and having to crunch on hard pretzels is tough.........lol..having said that, i suppose if it's all crushed up, it doesn't matter

Stir a little milk into some Nutella, nuke it a litte bit, pour over Ice Cream like Hot Fudge and sprinkle with some salted peanuts!

NYNM - you might like this recipe, supposedly it's one of Galatoire's signature desserts, though I've never eaten it there, have made it many times at home.
 
Princess Cup (serves 4)
 
11/2 cups canned fruit cocktail, or diced fresh soft fruit like peaches, plums, or pineapple, drained, reserve 1/3 cup syrup or juice
3/4 cup Cointreau
vanilla ice cream
 
Put the fruit cocktail or diced fruit and 1/3 syrup or juice into a stainless steel or porcelain bowl, and pour 1/2 cup Cointreau over it.  Mix thoroughly.  Cover, and refrigerator a couple of hours before serving.
 
To serve, put about 3 TBS. of the fruit mixture at the bottom of each of 4 parfait glasses.  Add 2 scoops of ice cream.  Cover each portion with one-quarter of the remaining fruit mixture and pour 1 TBS. of Cointreau over.  Set the parfaits on small flat plates and serve.
