Caramel Apple FloatsThese autumnal ice cream floats are the perfect fall treat. Sparkling apple cider poured over creamy caramel and/or butter pecan ice cream topped with cinnamon whipped cream – HELLO autumn!

I made two versions of these yummy treats — one with salted caramel ice cream and the other with butter pecan. Both were outrageously awesome. Pretty sure cinnamon ice cream would be delicious in these too, but I could not find cinnamon ice cream in any of my local grocery stores.

Feel free to enjoy these after the kiddos go to sleep and add a shot of caramel vodka. WHAT?!?! And you thought a caramel apple ice cream float couldn’t get any better!

float ingredients

What you need for two ice cream floats:

  • Six scoops of ice cream of your choice – I recommend salted caramel, butter pecan, cinnamon or even plain old vanilla.
  • 1 Bottle Sparkling Apple Cider
  • Cinnamon whipped cream (1 cup heavy cream, mixed with 3 heaping Tbs. powdered sugar, 1 tsp ground cinnamon and 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract, whipped until soft peaks form)
  • Caramel syrup and candied pecans for garnish

What you do:

  1. Put a little caramel syrup into the bottom of each glass. Swirl some on the sides of the glass too, if you want to be fancy.
  2. Place three scoops of ice cream into each glass.
  3. Slowly pour the sparkling cider over the ice cream. Let it rest and the bubbles to go down a bit, then add more cider.
  4. Top with a huge dollop of cinnamon whipped cream.
  5. Garnish with candied pecans and more caramel syrup.
  6. Enjoy! Be sure to bring the bottle of cider with you so you can keep topping off until every last drop is devoured!
