Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich

I love this easy dessert from my hometown grocery store, Heinen’s, inspired by one of their staffers summers on Jersey Shore boardwalk.

Waffles (Pre-made or Homemade, whichever you prefer)
Ice Cream of your choice
Powered Sugar
Chocolate Candy Bar


Simply lay out a few squares of wax paper – one per sandwich – to arrange the ingredients. Cut the waffle squares into triangular halves. Place one waffle triangle on the wax paper and add one large scoop of ice cream*. Add the other waffle triangle on top and dust with powdered sugar and chocolate shavings. Bite in before it melts too much!

*If your ice cream is soft it will easily sandwich between the waffle. Otherwise, you may want to scoop fresh-from-the-freezer, hard ice cream onto a separate piece of wax paper. Pull the wax paper over top the scoop and then, using your hands or a flat item like a cook book, press it into a more rectangular shape.
