In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

Unique ice cream toppings

Hot fudge... caramel... balsamic vinegar? Here's some new ideas to top your next ice cream sundae.

Why not try a new ice cream topping for your next sundae treat? There are a number of flavored olive oils and balsamic vinegars out there that add a unique and tasty flavor to the frozen confection.

We Olive & Wine Bar offers several unique flavors of olive oil and vinegar: blackberry balsamic, blood orange olive oil, and peach white balsamic to name a few.

CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY VINEGAR SUNDAE

Drizzle some Strawberry infused White Balsamic Vinegar on to chocolate ice cream. Top with sliced strawberries.

BLUEBERRY-LEMON JAM WITH BLACKBERRY VINEGAR

Top vanilla ice cream with Blueberry-Lemon Jam (or your favorite fruit jam). Pour on some Blackberry Balsamic Vinegar.

WE OLIVE & WINE BAR SUNDAE

Place 2 scoops of vanilla and 2 scoops of chocolate ice cream into a dish. Drizzle Blood Orange Olive Oil on top. Top with crushed pecans and Candied Balsamic Pecans. To make the pecans, mix aged balsamic vinegar and honey together. Coat pecans and toast for a few minutes.

The flavors of the olive oil and vinegars are very mild and quite delicious. They accentuate the ice cream with a pleasant taste. The olive oil adds a new texture to the dish and it goes well with the creaminess of the ice cream and the crunch of the pecans. A flavored balsamic vinegar may not be your usual ice cream topping but it should be an option if you are looking for something different.
