And so Waffle Week 2014 winds down to an end. We’ve had some fantastic this week,right? I can’t decide which I like best. I’ll probably make them all and eat them all in one sitting. Then will immediately bust out my comfy pants and prepare for the waffle sweats.

I couldn’t let the week go by without my own contribution, of course. And while I adore savory waffles that have unusual flavors, I needed to use this opportunity to go back to childhood. My brother, when we were kids, would eat an Eggo waffle, freshly toasted, with a giant dollop of ice cream. A waffle ice cream sandwich. Now, I was never big on ice cream sandwiches, they hurt my teeth. But as soon as I started brainstorming waffle recipes, that one popped in my head. I have the exact mental image of my brother, now 34 with two kids, as a little blonde boy with a waffle in his hand. Waffle ice cream sandwiches were inevitable.

I did up the ante a little. I love Eggo waffles as much as the next but hell, I’ve got my own waffle maker now. Instead of just a traditional waffle, I went with chocolate. Not just regular chocolate. Chocolate malt. Because chocolate malt. I love everything malt flavored. It gives this distinct taste, somewhat like Ovaltine (be sure to drink yours!) that I cannot resist. And in this waffles, it gives them just a hint of chocolate malt flavor. Feel free to use whatever ice cream flavor you fancy in these sandwiches, there are no rules. I’m a cool mom (gratuitous Mean Girls reference). I went with cookies and cream because I had it and it is delicious. But I’m thinking a Reese’s peanut butter chocolate ice cream would be killer in here.

I hope you enjoyed this week of delicious waffles! We’ll be here, same time, same place, next year for Waffle Week 2015! And a HUGE thanks to my amazing friends Elizabeth, Danae, Ashley and Aly! When are we getting together for brunch, ladies?!

  1. I love the idea of Waffle Week. I’m in the process of trying to find the perfect waffle maker. My daughter thinks waffles every morning would make her double course load easier to handle. Gotta love kids. And moms who would say heck no, turn them into ice cream sandwiches. Brilliant, yummy and totally happening.

  2. Whoaaaaaa. These are insane – in a super awesome way!! haha Why have I never put ice cream and waffles together before??

    And yes, we all need to get together for brunch :) Now that would be cool.
