- Cinnamon sugar pita chips - These are the most incredible base for these sweet nachos. The cinnamon sugar crunch is everything and they hold up really well under all of the toppings.
- Vanilla ice cream - I kept it traditional with vanilla, but any flavor ice cream can be used.
- Sundae toppings - Caramel sauce, hot fudge, whipped cream, maraschino cherries, and sprinkles round out the garnishes. Feel free to customize with your favorites.
Instructions for assembling
- Arrange the pita chips on a plate.
- Top with scoops of vanilla ice cream.
- Drizzle caramel sauce and hot fudge over the ice cream and the pita chips.
- Garnish with whipped cream, cherries, and sprinkles.
- Serve immediately.
Toppings and variations
There is no right or wrong way to create these dessert nachos. Anything you enjoy eating with ice cream is fair game. Try any of these add-ins.
- Butterscotch or strawberry sauce
- Mini marshmallows
- Crushed cookies
- Chocolate chips or M&M's
- Chopped candy bars

In place of cinnamon sugar pita chips, try waffle or sugar cones broken into large pieces. Graham crackers, chocolate wafer cookies, or thin and crispy chocolate chip cookies can also be used.
