The BEST ice cream nachos recipe! A quick and easy to make summer dessert that the whole family will absolutely love and ask for again and again.
My family loves ice cream. There is simply no other dessert that even compares.
So when I was thinking of a summer treat to make over the very hot weekend, I knew I wanted it to include ice cream.
Granted ice cream sundaes are always incredible, we enjoy them often — especially in the summer. But this time I wanted to make something fun and different.
Hence this amazing ice cream nacho sundae.
Ice Cream Nachos
What better way to cool down on a hot summer day than with a gigantic ice cream sundae for the whole family to enjoy?
The kids will love that they don’t even need a spoon to enjoy this ice cream sundae!
The broken sugar ice cream cone pieces are used to scoop up the ice cream.
I made our ice cream dessert nachos to serve 4, but you can easily adjust the recipe to serve more or less people.
Also, feel free to use your family’s favorite flavor of ice cream and ice cream sundae toppings for this recipe. Next time I think I will use our homemade no-churn chocolate ice cream or mason jar ice cream recipe— they are both so yummy and easy to make too!
Ice cream nachos topping ideas:
- whipped cream
- chocolate syrup
- maraschino cherries
- rainbow sprinkles
- crushed cookies
- chocolate chips
- chopped fruit chunks
- peanut butter sauce
- wet walnuts
- other candy / crushed up candy bars
Better yet, let the kids help you make the ice cream nachos. They will love to help break up the ice cream cones and have fun picking their favorite ice cream toppings and sprinkling them on top of the sundae.
PRO TIP: Be careful not to break the sugar cones up too well. You want the pieces to be large enough to use to scoop up the ice cream.
I hope that you and your family enjoy this sweet summer dessert recipe.
