12 Creative Toppings You Should Put On Vanilla Ice Cream
Unless you’re at a frozen yogurt shop this summer, you might be disappointed by your local ice cream stand’s topping choices. Oh, wow guys sprinkles… Life-changing. But if you’re at home and attempting to dress up plain old vanilla ice cream, we can hook you up.
1. Lemon and Mint
Take creamy vanilla and make it refreshing. Add fresh mint and the zest of a lemon to make it feel and taste tropical. The texture is also really unique.
2. Oreos and Peanut Butter
Cookies and cream is nothing new to the ice cream world. And based off The Parent Trap, neither is peanut butter and Oreo. However, when you add both to your ice cream, you’re in for an awesome flava.
3. Instant Espresso Powder
This wonderful creation is typically found in tiramisu, but if you love everything coffee, it’s perfect for your ice cream. The instant qualities let it absorb into the ice cream and create a super rich dessert. Don’t have this powder? Ground coffee beans will also do the trick.
4. Cinnamon Toast Crunch
I believe this cereal, with its utter sweetness and perfect texture, was born to be paired with ice cream. Cinnamon Toast Crunch adds flavor and crunch without getting soggy or breaking your teeth. This might be the best breakfast ever.
5. Toasted Day-Old Croissants
Hear us out on this one. Day-old croissants make an excellent pairing for sooo many things. The flakey texture and buttery flavor are the perfect complements to creamy vanilla ice cream. For an extra kick, add raspberry preserves or any kind of sweetened fruit.
6. Molasses and Granola
Whether it’s blackstrap (the real deal) or Grandma’s (for the sweet-lovers), molasses has an amazing flavor that should not be limited to cookies. Drizzle a little over ice cream to create an awesome color and taste, and throw on a handful of granola for crunch.
This flavor combination is strange, but GOOD. Don’t discount wasabi – the spicy nature pairs well with creamy flavors (think: avocado in sushi) making this a neat ice cream experience.
8. Barbecue Chips
If you like the salty-sweet combo, you probably love barbecue chips. But when that taste is added to creamy cold ice cream? Heaven. Chips also make an awesome topping thanks to their texture. Next time you’re stuck with the crushed bottom of the bag, consider adding them to the top of your sundae.
9. Rice Krispie Treats
Rice krispie treats add a unique crunch and marshmallow flavor to ice cream, creating a mini rocky road kinda flavor. Make sure to try chocolate flavored krispie treats as well.
10. Coconut Milk Whipped Cream

If you follow vegan trends, you may have stumbled across this recipe for coconut milk whipped cream. It’s easily made with the meat of a coconut milk can. Consider topping a rich and flavorful chocolate variety with this non-dairy wonder for a major flavor hit.
11. Cracker Jacks and Pretzels
Pretzels and Cracker Jacks add the perfect amount of sweetness balanced with some salt. This combo is crunchy and satisfying. Yes.
12. Bacon and Nutella
People are normally die hard fans of bacon desserts or just grossed out by them. While it’s not ideal for everyone, the smoky and salty flavor of bacon goes great with sweet cream and Nutella. Give it a try and possibly pass it off as a meal?
New cereal pancakes will make you feel like a kid again
If you find yourself having to choose between cereal or pancakes for breakfast, now you don’t have to.
For the first time ever, IHOP is combining its World Famous b uttermilk pancakes with fan-favorite cereals for the ultimate breakfast mashup – cereal pancakes!
The limited-time lineup features collaborations with Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Fruity Lucky Charms. The menu also includes a line of c ereal m ilkshakes.
“IHOP is always looking for ways to take pancakes to a new level, including interesting, new flavor combinations and mashups,” says Alisa Gmelich , vice president of marketing, IHOP. “With cereal pancakes, we took another favorite breakfast food that has very nostalgic flavors and built a delicious lineup that takes us back to that ‘Saturday morning feeling’ we all had when we were kids.”
IHOP worked closely with the Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch brand teams, and our B rand E xperience team, as well as our Convenience & Foodservice business segment, to bring these new recipes to life .
“Our teams were integral in providing a perspective on how the brands and products were incorporated into the recipes,” says Liz Mahler, senior brand manager, Cereal, at General Mills. “Through this partnership with IHOP, we’re bringing Lucky’s marshmallow magic and Cinnamon Toast Crunch’s epic cinnamon and sugar combination to consumers in a fun, new way.”
Not only are these new recipes fun and delicious, they also reflect a greater trend of cereal-in spir ed offerings across the food industry .
“ Cereal has taken off over the past few years as a star ingredient in menus and in recipes,” says Nancy Maurer, senior c ulinary chef at General Mills . “ And it’s not going anywhere. Consumers love it because i t evokes that sense of childhood nostalgia.”
The new ‘cakes and shakes’ are the inspiration for IHOP’s latest ad campaign, which is all about letting go of ‘adulting’ and harnessing your inner child.
The campaign features a Child Executive Officer, the brains behind the new menu innovation.
“This new line-up challenges the conventions of what we think pancakes and shakes should be. Our Child Executive Officer is the perfect spokesperson to deliver the message because, well, she doesn’t know what conventions are just yet , ” says Gmelich .
The new cereal pancakes and sha k es are available at IHOP restaurants across the U.S. now through April 12.
And if you’re lucky enough to make it there on St. Patrick’s Day, IHOP is serving up $1 St. Paddy’s Day Cakes – a short stack of Irish-green pancakes topped with sweet cream cheese icing, F ruity Lucky Charms cereal and whipped topping.
