Cold Stone Creamery is rolling out a line of four hot desserts as a warm alternative to its ice cream offerings in the winter months.
The Plated Desserts, which Cold Stone will offer at $4.99 starting Wednesday, will feature brownies, chocolate cake, churros and funnel cakes, served with ice cream.
“The Plated Desserts brings desserts that are rarely seen in the restaurant space, such as churros and funnel cakes, and brings elegance and a whimsical flair to these decadent treats,” said Suzanne Schutz, vice president of marketing for Cold Stone Creamery, which is based in Scottsdale, Ariz.
A company spokesperson said the only investment required of franchisees will be the cost of an in-store microwave oven.
The desserts will be available at $4.99 through April 30. They are:
• Brownie A La Cold Stone with warm chocolate brownies, vanilla ice cream, whipped topping, caramel, hot fudge and pecans
• Churro Caramel Crave with churros rolled in cinnamon and sugar, vanilla ice cream, caramel and whipped topping
• Chocolate Lava Meltdown with warm chocolate cake filled with hot fudge and topped with vanilla ice cream, fudge, whipped topping and shaved chocolate
• No Fair Funnel Cake dusted with powdered sugar and served with strawberries, vanilla ice cream, strawberry puree and whipped topping
Cold Stone, a division of Kahala Corp., has more than 1,500 locations in 16 countries.
