Apple Crumble Sundae

A Sundae for a Sunday!

I made these on Expresso Morning Show the other day for National Sundae Day. I love ice cream in winter, but I think I’m the only one, so I combined a classic winter dessert with a classic summer dessert and it’s delicious.

Drizzle over some Caramel Sauce and winter won’t seem so bad.
