Honey and Birch was created by Jenny and it has a whole bunch of amazing easy recipes and cocktails! She is a self-taught cook who learned to cook when she met her husband! Make sure to go check out her site, it’s really great!

Choosing a recipe to make was so hard because there were so many that sounded delicious (like the Pumpkin Pie Spice Nuts and Autumn Spiced Rum Cider Cocktail) but I eventually decided on this Apple Cake Sundae after much deliberation and wow, it was a wonderful decision! The cake was so delicious and combined with the ice cream/caramel, it was truly the perfect fall treat! I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon and chopped pecans too! I kept the recipe exactly the same as the original except I was a bit lazy and didn’t peel the apple!

I loved how easy this whole dessert was to make and there was quite a few servings here so I had dessert for days! I used this as a chance to try out that Halo Top Ice Cream that I kept seeing everywhere online! I would happily get some again!
