Mmmmm, this apple cider float is goooooood. You can't see me, but I'm doing my happy dance..... while I drink this ice cream float recipe.... and type.
Why? Because it's almost Fall, my favorite season! Yippee! Hooray! Woo-hoo! You can already find pumpkin flavored everything in the stores and I'm about to start my Halloween decorating.
But back to the apple cider ice cream float recipe. It's so yummy! More than I was expecting it to be.
I was grocery shopping with my mom when I decided that I wanted to make an apple cider ice cream float. I love floats, so it seemed like a good idea. I grabbed what I thought I would need and headed to the checkout. So, I was already home when I was telling my mom about my idea. She asked me if I picked up sparkling apple cider. Doh! No, I didn't. I got regular apple cider.
How To Make An Ice Cream Float
What usually qualifies a frozen dessert recipe as an ice cream float is the ice cream and soda. So my apple cider was not going to give me the bubbly goodness you get when you pour a carbonated beverage over ice cream. But you know what would? Sparkling apple cider!
So, I went back to the store and got sparkling cider. To kick it up another notch I drizzled my glass with caramel sauce. You can use store bough caramel sauce, like this one, or make your own! Check out my homemade caramel sauce - it's surprisingly easy and so yummy.
These apple cider floats are quick, easy, and delicious. Plus they are perfect for kicking off my favorite season.
