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! Make sure to tell what you think of this delicious, homemade ice cream sandwich recipe!

- Category: Dessert
- Cuisine: American
- 2 1/2 cups of Heavy Whipping Cream
- 5 Tablespoons of Hersey’s Natural Unsweetened Cocoa
- 1 cup of Sugar (Pure Can Sugar Only)
- 1/2 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 1 1/2 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!

I agree 100 percent about ice cream that has ingredients I cannot even pronounce. I have issues about eating food that have a lot of strange things in them. My mother is allergic to wheat and my brother-in-law has Celiac’s Disease. Vans has some yummy tasting waffles that are gluten-free. These ice cream sandwiches are a great treat that everyone can eat and enjoy. Maybe some blueberry waffles and little whip cream with fresh blueberries and I just made a really nice dessert.

I love that there is so much protein in a dessert! I’ve never used waffles with ice cream before, but I will now. I’m not so sure about making my own ice cream though….I get impatient when I want to splurge.
This recipe looks delicious! What a sweet treat! You can’t go wrong with a great-tasting waffle plus home made chocolate ice cream!

This recipe brings back memories of my childhood in the 1960’s. My dad would make homemade waffles. I would fill them with ice cream and sprinkle them with powdered sugar. What a great summertime treat!
Now that looks so simple but yet so delicious. I can see where waiting is the hardest part! I never thought to use waffles and make ice cream sandwiches but that is such a great idea.
Ken Green says
Looks good. Need to get some waffles!

To much work for me, lol. I rather buy the ice cream and use Van waffles, it is much easier. Hey Susan, have you ever tried using 2% milk in your ice cream recipe?

I never thought to make ice cream sandwiches with waffles.My daughter would love it if I made these for a snack sometime!
That actually sounds really good. I never thought to use ice cream. Of course I do not have the equipment to make homemade ice cream, but im sure I could substiute it 🙂

Thanks Susan for this delicious recipe. Ice cream sandwiches have always been my favorite treat. I have always wanted to know how to make these–I never considered using waffles. This recipe looks simple enough for even me to be able to make it. I am going to make these this weekend.
that looks wonderful! I would have never thought to use healthy waffles!

denise low says
Looks delicous.My favorite is ice cream. Thanks for the recipe and thanks so much for all your contests
I would probably mess with this one a little- meaning I would likely use vanilla or mint chocolate chip ice cream and then I would throw Nutella on the waffles, and then scrunch it together for a treat. I like to experiment, and while I love chocolate ice cream to distraction, I know how I am, and I would have to use some unusual stuff to make my ice cream sandwich unique. I do, however, really like the idea of using the gluten-free waffles for an ice cream sandwich- genius!
Homemade ice cream tastes so much better than most store bought brands. I like this version of an ice cream sandwich. And best of all, it’s quick and easy to make.
