Ice Cream Sandwich Ingredients
All you need for the recipe is waffles, your favorite sprinkles, and your favorite ice cream! Seriously, that’s it! I like to use vanilla ice cream, but you can use any flavor you’d like!
How to Make Ice Cream Sandwiches
First, make your waffles, whether you’re using store-bought or making them at home in a waffle maker. Let your waffles cool, and get your ice cream out. Using an ice cream scoop, add scoops of ice cream on one waffle, and top with a second waffle to make a sandwich. Push down until some of the ice cream comes out the side. Then, dip the sides in sprinkles until it’s completely covered. It’s that easy!
