Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches

DIY Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches

School is out, and sum­mer vaca­tion is upon us. We are eagerly look­ing for­ward to warm days spent out­side: at the park, at the beach, and explor­ing our city. Some of those hot after­noons deserve a spe­cial treat, and this sim­ple dessert is a per­fect way to cool off. Waf­fles are lightly toasted and then topped with ice cream, which just may be the eas­i­est ice cream sand­wich assem­bled ever.

You can make these as sim­ple or as elab­o­rate as you like. Store bought waf­fles and ice cream will work just fine, or you can go ahead and make your own. I highly rec­om­mend The Faux Martha’s Whole Wheat Waf­fles, or Banana Bread Waf­fles from Top with Cin­na­mon. This no-churn peanut but­ter ice cream would also taste deli­cious in-between your favorite waffles.

To assem­ble:

Toast waf­fles until crisp and golden (or, if mak­ing home­made, use warm off the iron).
