One of the things I found most difficult in the past when we had visitors over was that I felt like I should be making 'regular dessert' for the guests. Over time I haven't worried so much and now I just make one thing, but if you still worry about what everyone will eat, or want something really quick and easy the whole family will love then I came up with this just for you!!
All you need to do is whip up a batch of cupcakes, any flavour you like, and turn them into little cups to hold some ice cream. It will literally take seconds to turn them into cups and then you can fill them with any safe ice cream and drizzle with some yummy Nature's Charm Sauce. They'd even be fab filled with Nature's Charm Coconut Whipping Cream :-)
There are four fab flavours to choose from so you can team up the sauce with whatever cake and ice cream you prefer.
I went with chocolate cupcakes and chocolate sauce because that's what Alex likes the most. We had some Over The Moo Ice Cream in the freezer so Alex had chocolate and Paige had caramel.
Of course if you have time you could make your own ice cream and sauce, but if you're really pushed for time like I was the other night then this idea is for you.
You could even make a big batch of cupcakes and serve some for dessert and ice the rest and serve them the next day (or whack them in the freezer for emergencies).
Anyway, it's a pretty simple idea and I hope your family loves them as much as my kids did!!
