Kid-Friendly Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches Warm Weather Favourite Recipe

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!) This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled, as needed.

Prep time: 5 minutes (+ time to chill sandwiches)
Cook time: 10-12 minutes
Yields 4 ice cream sandwiches

Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches Ingredients:

4 square waffles, cut into 8 rectangles (or 8 Eggo® Wafflers)
Vanilla bean ice cream

Chocolate Syrup Ingredients:

½ c. water
½ c. white sugar
1/3 c. unsweetened dark cocoa powder
1 t. real vanilla extract
1/8 t. salt

Optional topping ideas:
Chocolate sauce
Chopped nuts


1. Pre-heat oven to 350ºF and arrange the waffles on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Remove ice cream from freezer to soften slightly.

2. 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.

3. Prepare the chocolate syrup by combining the water, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt in a small skillet set over medium heat. Whisk vigorously until the sugar is dissolved and the cocoa powder is thoroughly incorporated into the mixture, approximately 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool completely.

4. 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.”

5. 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 the chocolate sauce, plus sprinkles and/or chopped nuts, if desired, before serving. Enjoy!
