Here’s a little secret: It’s pretty difficult to find an ice cream that can’t be improved (at least a little) by an awesome topping. Of course there’s no scientific data here, but we're counting on gooey butterscotch, crumbled peanut butter cups, and caramelized white chocolate sauce to back us up.
While we love complex ice cream flavors (Earl Grey Ice Cream with Blackberry Swirl, anyone?), a solid topping still takes things to the next level. So here are 13 of them for your next ice cream social -- or maybe just for later tonight.
