If I’ve already made the decision to have dessert, then the question of whether or not to have it a la mode is a no-brainer. Yes, please! There’s something about ice cream that makes each sweet bite that much better. Here are five desserts beyond the traditional apple pie a la mode that are begging to be topped with a scoop of ice cream.

While vanilla ice cream is the obvious choice for its versatility, sorbets and even vegan ice creams are great toppers that offer a nice temperature and textural contrast with whatever they’re served on. My favorite part is when they start to melt, forming a nice saucy base that mingles in with the rest of the dessert. Dig the ice cream scoop out of the drawer and start scooping!
