The correct form would be:

"Ice cream is a kind of dessert."

"Desserts" is the plural of "dessert". You could say:

"My favourite desserts are ice cream, vanilla pudding, and cherry pie."

I'm getting hungry now - see you later! :-D

Maybe this thread was a year ago, but I would like to help you then. The correct one you can use is, “Ice cream is a kind of dessert”, because ice cream is a singular noun so you may use also a singular adjective.
