Ingredients

2 cups (8 small scoops) vanilla ice cream

For the Smoky Caramel Sauce:

2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

For the Apple Crisp Topping:

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 medium apples, peeled, cored and cut into 3-4-inch dice
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup quick cooking oats
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

To make the caramel sauce: 

  1. Combine the sugar, water and lime juice in the Farberware Neat Nest 1.5-Qt Saucepot over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves, and cook until the liquid is a light golden color, about 7-9 minutes. Remove from the heat and carefully whisk in the heavy cream until smooth. Stir in the chili powder and smoked paprika.

To make the apple crisp topping: 

  1. Melt the butter in the Farberware Neat Nest 3.5-Qt Saucepot over medium heat. Add the apples and sugar; cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples begin to soften but still hold their shape, about 4-5 minutes. Add the walnuts and cook 2 minutes. Stir in the oats and cinnamon and cook 3 minutes until mixture thickens.
  2. Scoop 1/2 cup ice cream into each of 4 sundae glasses. Spoon caramel sauce over the ice cream and top with the apple crisp mixture.
