Recipe Notes

When you mix the topping together, it may be a bit lumpy. Don't worry! This is what will make that nice and delicious top layer! If you want to add a little more flair to this recipe, feel free to add some walnuts to it. Our son is allergic to tree nuts, so we usually leave those out of recipes. I also think it would be delicious to drizzle some caramel sauce on top of the vanilla ice cream!
