Some people in Fall or Winter don’t like cold desserts. I am not one of those people. I love nothing more after a warm meal having something cold to contrast it.
This dessert is a spin on the regular Buster Bar. This is its Fall Sister.
I love the crunchy chocolate coating that leads to the creaming pumpkin ice cream and rich salted caramel. If you enjoy texture feel free to add some nuts to this recipe.
You can eat this recipe on a stick as shown or put it on a plate and enjoy with a fork. This option makes this recipe a perfect dessert for two.
This recipe is vegan, gluten free, dairy free, no bake, freezer-made and the perfect dessert on a stick.
