Swirling caramelized apples with dulce de leche into vanilla ice cream makes for a delicious treat. Slideshow: Tasty Apple Desserts
Melt the butter in a medium skillet. Add the apples and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened and browned, about 5 minutes. Add the sugar, cinnamon and 1/4 cup of water and cook for 2 minutes longer. Stir in the dulce de leche until melted. Scrape the mixture into a bowl and refrigerate until chilled.
Fold the apple mixture into softened vanilla ice cream and freeze until firm, about 4 hours. Scoop into bowls and garnish with chocolate shavings and crumbled gingersnaps.
Made this last night minus the chocolate savings and gingersnaps, instead serving with some warm dulce de leche. Delicious. Layers of flavors.
