Falls always brings with it familiar smells and flavors. As the air becomes crisp, they’re what we begin to crave. But if you’ve had it with the pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pies, and pumpkin popsicles that invade this time of the year, turn to one of the season’s other signature tastes – apple. These apple desserts will satisfy your fall cravings and have you feeling cozy in no time.
CARAMEL APPLE FRITTER
Happy Cakes Bakery
Fried and flavorful, there’s no better dessert for a cool fall afternoon. This classic fritter is a fresh, sweet snack or a mouthwatering, rich pick-me-up first thing in the morning. All the fritters are made fresh in house, so it’s time to get in line.
Cousteau’s Waffle & Milkshake Bar
In this decadent and delightful dessert (but also could be dinner, because, frankly, we’re not here to judge), Cousteau’s famous Belgian waffle is topped with hot, fresh cinnamon apples, vanilla ice cream, caramel drizzle, and bourbon whipped cream. Our tastebuds are celebrating, and yours will too.
SALTED CARAMEL APPLE
Apples and ice cream are a match made in heaven – that’s just a well-known fact. Especially when Peace Pie puts them in ice cream sandwich form. The familiar flavors of apple pie, caramel, ice cream, and just a hint of sea salt will be something to dig into.
Sometimes all you need is a warm and gooey slice of the classic. Fresh every day and always baked in-house, this streusel and brown sugar cinnamon ice cream-topped crisp (whew, that’s a mouthful) is utterly to die for. It’s a tried-and-true dessert just like mama used to make.
APPLE HONEY GOAT
Leave it to the Hyppo to take apple flavors to the next level. This delicious pop is made with apples, a drizzle of honey, and just a little goat cheese. It’s a delicately complex little popsicle that’s perfect for cooling off in Florida’s inevitably hot fall days.
