Caramel Apple Ice Cream Boats

This easy ice cream dessert is like a mix of a caramel apple, empanada and apple pie.


If you love caramel apples, empanadas, and apple pie a la mode, you’re going to want to try this amazing ice cream dessert. Everyone I made this for flipped out… it was that good!

The star of the show are these tortilla taco boats. 

When baked, they turn into a big cinnamon chip that adds the perfect crunchy element to this dessert.  You can find them in the hispanic food aisle near the other taco shells.

Store the baked taco boats an airtight container until you are ready to serve up the ice cream.

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

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!
