Not only does this easy dessert recipe take 10 minutes, it’s absolutely delicious and perfect for late summer and fall entertaining. Really.

I can’t take credit for this recipe’s creation but that’s O.K.! Breyers is celebrating its 150th birthday and has partnered with celebrity chef Curtis Stone and his wife, actress Lindsay Price Stone, to create 12 recipes featuring Breyers Natural Vanilla. Recipes are inspired by every month of the year, to give families a way to celebrate birthdays and special occasions with Breyers all year long.

Spice Roasted Figs with Hazelnuts and Vanilla Ice Cream is the August recipe and you’ll want to pin this post for future reference, I promise.

Here is how you make it.

Spiced fig and vanilla ice cream recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbs. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cloves
  • 8 ripe figs, halved lengthwise
  • 1 1/3 cups Breyer’s Natural Ice Cream
  • 1/4 cup blanched hazelnuts, toasted, coarsely chopped

Position broiler rack 6″ from the heat source and preheat broiler. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.

In a small bowl, mix sugar and spices. One at a time, dip figs, cut side down, in sugar mixture to coat. Then coat figs a second time with sugar mixture and arrange cut side up on baking sheet.

Broil figs, watching closely, for about 4 minutes, or until sugar melts and begins to caramelize and figs soften slightly and begin to ooze their juice.

Divide figs among 4 bowls. Spoon 1/3 cup of Breyers® Natural Vanilla Ice Cream into each bowl and sprinkle with hazelnuts.

Then rush to take as many photos as possible before the warm figs melt the ice cream. Or, nosh away!

My favorite Breyers flavor actually is the Natural Vanilla Ice Cream. All Breyers vanilla is real and from sustainably farmed, Rainforest Alliance Certified™ vanilla beans. Breyers only sources milk and cream from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones*. This is all important to me, but the truth is the ice cream simply tastes fantastic. We’ve been buying Breyers for as long as I can remember.

*Suppliers of other ingredients such as cookies, candies & sauces may not be able to make this pledge. The FDA states that no significant difference has been shown between dairy derived from rBST-treated and non-rBST treated cows.
