Guests can scoop up this sweet fall sensation starting on October 1
Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream, serving award-winning ice cream since 1945, will bring back one of its signature menu items that’s ripe for the picking starting on Sunday, October 1, 2023. The returning Hot Apple Dumpling boasts warm and cozy flavors that will make guests fall in love with the autumn season. Handel’s is working with Dimitria Delights, a family-owned bakery in North Grafton, MA, in bringing the Hot Apple Dumpling to all its locations across the US.
The Hot Apple Dumpling takes guests to dessert heaven with a warm, homemade pastry filled with caramel and cinnamon-spiced apples. The Apple Dumpling is topped with a caramel icing drizzle and paired with Handel’s freshly made vanilla ice cream and cinnamon sauce.
“We are so excited to partner with Dimitria Delights for this delicious creation that we are sure our fans are going to love. We paired their delicious apple dumpling with our beloved vanilla ice cream for a match made in dessert heaven,” said Lenny Fisher, Chairman of Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream. “It’s truly an honor to team up with this family-owned business that places as much focus on high quality and tasty products as we do.”
The new Hot Apple Dumpling will be available at all Handel’s locations for a limited time only while supplies last. In addition to sundaes, Handel’s features ice cream by the cone or dish, Hurricanes, shakes, Handel Pops, and more. Locations offer to-go, online ordering for pickup or delivery, and catering. Services may vary, so check your local Handel’s for details.
