Everything you need to create delicious waffle ice cream sandwiches

Birthday season is about to start up here in our house.

In our large family, we have birthdays every month for ten months straight. March and April are my only months off. Now we are gearing up for birthday season and in preparation, I made these amazing waffle ice cream sandwiches.

Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches are the perfect summertime dessert.

It’s true, I’m a huge ice cream fan. After my favorite ice cream flavor was discontinued I experimented until I came up with something I liked even better, Vanilla Latte Ice Cream. It has a rich, creamy coffee flavor with a hint of vanilla. So good!

And then…I came up with this.

Combine creamy cool ice cream with toasted waffles…and you have the perfect treat!

Seriously. How have I never thought of this before?

Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches are the perfect summertime dessert.

These waffle ice cream sandwiches were really easy to assemble but there a few tips that will make it easier.

Supplies:

Waffles

Start with Eggo Chocolate Chip Waffles, Eggo Cinnamon Toast, Eggo Blueberry and Eggo Thick and Fluffy.

Ice Cream

We settled on the classics: vanilla and chocolate

Extras

Sprinkles, chopped nuts, chocolate hardening sauce (for dipping waffles)

Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches are the perfect summertime dessert.

Step One:

Toast the waffles and then pop them in the freezer. You want to toast them for the flavor but you need them cold and hard to spread the ice cream.

Step Two:

While the waffles are freezing, removed the ice cream and let it soften. This will make it easier to spread.

Step Three:

Once the waffles are frozen and the ice cream softened, use a frosting spreader to add a thick layer of ice cream to the waffles.

The more the better…this is ice cream we are talking about after all.

Step Four:

Put the waffles spread with ice cream back in the freezer. We used a cookie sheet and put each waffle ice cream sandwich directly back in the freezer as it was assembled.

Step Five:

Now the real fun begins! We loved coming up with different combinations for different waffle ice cream sandwiches. First, we cut the waffle ice cream sandwiches in half or quarters.

Next, we dipped these in a chocolate hardening shell. I was a little worried about how difficult this step would be, but it turned out to be very simple.

Once the sandwich was dipped we he let it harden for 15-20 seconds and then put it on our frozen cookie sheet back in the freezer.

    When our kids were growing up, 2-4 times/year we would have waffles and ice cream for supper. I gave it a special cachet by telling the kids it had to be our secret or the supper police would come and do something because there were no vegetables on the kid’s plates.
    We served hot fresh waffles with vanilla ice cream and fresh strawberries or blueberries, warm from the sun if possible.
    Such good memories.

    • That sounds really fun (and delicious). I love you reference to the supper police 🙂

  2. Wow! Just WOW! You. Are. Awesome!!!
