Let’s get this LABOR DAY weekend started friends! Traditionally this weekend wraps up summer and is filled with BBQ’s and spending time with friends and family, oh and a little shopping 🙂 If you’re entertaining or heading to a BBQ I want to share this easy, crowd pleasing take on ice cream sandwiches. I also want to share some of my favorite stores that are having some amazing Labor Day sales.
WAFFLE ICE CREAM SANDWICHES
I can’t take credit for this idea, my daughter came up with this. A few weeks ago we had some friends over and I was brain storming with her some clever dessert ideas that we could serve. My daughter is quite the chef and very creative in the kitchen. Being summertime we knew we wanted to use ice cream. She suggested we do ice cream sandwiches but use waffles instead of cookies.
A few weeks prior we were at Target and she really wanted THIS MINI WAFFLE MAKER. Being that it was $10 and our old waffle maker had just died I got it for her. This ended up making the perfect sized waffles for our sandwiches.
We decided to keep it simple and used Dulce De Leche and Vanilla Ice Cream. Turn out the waffle indentations are perfect for hold the Dulce De Leche! We spread both waffles and scooped on the ice cream. For sure we plan on making these again and brainstormed some other flavor combinations.
Lemon Ice Cream + Rasberry Jam | Peanut Butter Ice Cream + Chocolate Fudge
Coffee Ice Cream + Hazelnut Spread | Vanilla Ice Cream + Lemon Curd
