Here, seven delicious things to swirl into almost-instant ice cream—or a pint of premade vanilla ice cream—for an incredible dessert.
1. Ricotta, Honey & Almonds
The ricotta adds extra creaminess, while the almonds give it a delicious crunch.

Folding in apple butter is a great way to add elegance. Top the ice cream with ginger–laced melted chocolate.

Brown butter, made by warming butter in a skillet until it’s deeply golden, gives this chunky, streusel-like crumble a wonderfully nutty flavor.
4. Caramel-Apple Ice Cream
Swirl in caramelized apples with dulce de leche for an ultra-indulgent dessert.
5. Fresh Blueberry Sauce
Mix this easy fruit sauce into the ice cream or pour it on top for a simple summer sundae.
6. Caramel Rum Raisin Sauce
Perfect for super-simple DIY rum raisin ice cream.
7. Double-Chocolate Cookie Crumble
This chocolate crumble is crisp, light and deeply chocolaty, with a nice saltiness to it.
