Sometimes, it’s nice to treat yourself to something special. Ever since I was a kid I have loved ice cream sandwiches. As an adult, however, I have been a bit frightened by some of the ingredients. Maybe I’m crazy, but if I can’t easily pronounce the ingredients I usually assume it shouldn’t go in my body. I have been on a kick of making my own ice cream, especially after my husband bought me a Kitchenaid Ice Cream Bowl that works with my Kitchenaid mixer. All I do is put in the freezer for two or three days and then I can whip up my favorite homemade ice cream!
With National Waffle Day here, I decided to make a unique treat for my family – homemade ice cream sandwiches. The ice cream for this recipe has the most wonderful texture, and the sweet flavor compliments the frozen waffles that make this so quick to fix. I personally love to use Vans Love Your Heart wholegrain waffles. These waffles are made from natural ingredients and have a great taste to pair with this sweet chocolate ice cream!

- 2½ Cups of Heavy Whipping Cream
- 5 Tablespoons of Hersey's Natural Unsweetened Cocoa
- 1 Cup of Sugar (Pure Can Sugar Only)
- ½ Teaspoon of Salt
- 1 Cup of Whole Milk
- 2 Teaspoon of Pure Vanilla Extract
- 6 ounces of Semi-Sweet Chocolate (I use chips)
- 1 Box of Van's Natural Foods Love Your Heart wholegrain waffles (in the frozen section)
- ) In a saucepan, mix the heavy whipping cream, cocoa, sugar, and salt . Make sure to stir constantly to keep it from sticking.
- ) Once the mixture is at a rolling boil, remove from heat.
- ) Mix the chocolate chips into the mixture until they are completely melted.
- ) Once the chocolate mixture has melted, pour in the milk and vanilla and stir.
- ) Place the liquid mixture in a blender. This will make sure there are no chocolate chunks and that the texture is even. Blend on a low to medium low setting for 1½ minutes.
- ) Place the blender full of the chocolate mixture in the fridge for 6 to 8 hours. Waiting is the hard part!
- ) Take the mixture out of the fridge. Use your ice cream maker as directed. (I use my Kitchenaid Ice Cream Bowl attachment). I like the ice cream airy and fluffy so I stir mine longer than directed.
- ) Toast your Vans waffles. When finished, place ice cream between two waffles and serve!
