I wanted a fun dessert that would be an ode to the end of summer while still looking forward to the beginnings of fall and all it has to bring. Sweaters, leaves, cozy blankets. Well, in my mind that’s what fall is, cooling weather and cozy things. But, in truth, here in California fall is probably the hottest season we have. Dry, windy, and hot. So, an ice cream float is a perfect fall treat.
