I just love the simplicity of this dessert and the fact that it is so easy and so fun to do.   This makes it the perfect dessert for outdoor entertaining, or for kids parties even.

It's as simple as putting a nice storebought glazed, yeast or cake donut on a plate . . .

Topping it with a scoop of ice cream, and then some sauce  . . .  the flavour of which will all depend on your donut.  On a chocolate glazed donut I would use vanilla ice cream, and chocolate sauce . . .

On these raspberry glazed donuts, I used raspberry ripple ice cream and warmed berry jam to spoon over top . . .

With some of those fudgy caramel donuts, you could use vanilla ice cream and a salted caramel sauce and top with some little fudge bits and chopped toasted pecans!

The sprinkles really make them even more fun.  I have used strawberry and meringue bits here along with white chocolate stars!

For one:

fruity type of ice cream. For chocolate donuts, use vanilla ice cream, or chocolate ripple.  Pick and choose what you
think will go together)
