Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there on this special day! I’m definitely a Daddy’s girl just ask my two brothers and they will fully support this statement. I remember my mom when I was growing up coming and asking me to ask my dad for something because she new that if I asked he’d go for it, but if she did he wouldn’t. We didn’t do this many times, only when we found that it was completely necessary of course! My dad has always been there for me and supported me in life with everything so I can’t wait to have him over for supper tonight to say “thanks” for everything he has gave me in life. For Father’s Day I temporarily lost my sanity and volunteered to not only host the hubby’s family for the noon meal but then my family for supper. Actually it turns out it hasn’t been that bad. Well, my hubby might not agree as yesterday I may have lost it a few times when I was trying to clean and cook. We got through it though! I even seem to have found enough of a break in between the hosting to write up this blog post. Luckily I picked two fairly simple meal plans that allowed me to prepare most of the food ahead of time and I’ve got the hubby on grill duty tonight for my family. The recipe I’m sharing with you is what I made for dessert at noon. It was incredibly yummy, which I’m not sure is surprising because with the list of ingredients like this how can you really go wrong? I think this dessert screams summertime and it’s the perfect summer day for it. I adapted it to make it chocolate free but you can change it back to chocolate if you like. If you are feeling really crazy you could do one jar of caramel sauce and one jar of chocolate sauce! Now if I could have chocolate that would be the way I would go for sure. Enjoy!

    I think the crust and topping stays fairly crunchy for being topped with ice cream!
