BEST EASY KID-FRIENDLY WAFFLE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES
This quick and easy “semi-homemade” recipe is perfect for younger children who like to help out in the kitchen. For best results, use square or rectangle waffles (vs. round) for this recipe (and plenty of sprinkles for decorating!) Remember, you CAN always make homemade waffles!
This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled, as needed.
Tip: Remove ice cream from freezer 15 minutes prior to using to soften.
Prep time: 5 minutes (+ time to chill sandwiches)
Cook time: 10-12 minutes
Yields 4 ice cream sandwiches
1 qt. vanilla bean ice cream
4 square waffles, cut into 8 rectangles (or 8 Eggo® Wafflers)
Optional topping ideas:
- Pre-heat oven to 350ºF and arrange the waffles on a large, rimmed baking sheet.
- Place baking sheet in pre-heated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, flipping the waffles halfway through. Once waffles are golden brown, remove baking sheet from oven and set aside to cool for several minutes.
- Add a scoop of ice cream to four of the waffles and spread into an even layer. Top each with one of the remaining toasted waffles to create a “sandwich.”
- Place the ice cream sandwiches back on the baking tray and place in the freeze for 30 minutes to firm up. Remove baking sheet from freezer and top with chocolate sauce, sprinkles, and/or chopped nuts, if desired, right before serving. Enjoy!
