Caramel Apple Ice Cream Boats

The Big Game is right around the corner. To football fans everywhere it means watching on a big screen and cheering out loud, but to me it's all about the food! Today I'm sharing a recipe that would be perfect to take to a certain game on a certain Sunday... you know what I'm talking about. In fact, this recipe is so good, you may even forget about the game because you'll be too busy licking your fingers! These caramel apple ice cream boats are an incredible, easy dessert perfect for sharing with friends over a good football game.


I mean, seriously... just look at that ooey gooey caramel. Touchdown!



I purchased everything I needed to make this dessert at my local Albertsons. I shop there whenever I can because they always have what I need in stock and I know I won't have to wait in line for an hour to check out! I found the Taco Boats in the Hispanic foods section, right next to the other taco shells.


Caramel Apple Ice Cream Boats

1 package Old El Paso™ Soft Tortilla Taco Boats
1 carton vanilla ice cream
1 jar caramel ice cream topping
1 can apple pie filling
1/4 cup butter, melted
cinnamon sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place tortilla shells on a baking sheet. Brush insides and outsides with melted butter, then sprinkle with a generous amount of cinnamon sugar.


Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until tortillas are golden brown and crunchy.


Cool taco shells completely. Store in an airtight container until you are ready to serve. Then place one scoop of ice cream in the shell. Top with one scoop of apple pie filling, then drizzle the whole thing with a generous amount of caramel topping. Serve immediately.


I can't even describe how delicious these were. But imagine that a caramel apple, an empanada and Grandma's apple pie a la mode had a baby. THAT is what these are. You have got to give them a try!
