Strawberry Shortcake Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches

|By Jenn Young| Featured, Recipes, Uncategorized

We love the Food Network in our house. When my kids are hitting me up for TV time, they have started asking if they can watch Chopped or Cutthroat Kitchen rather than Disney Channel shows. {Which I have to say is fine with me — some of those Disney shows are just plain creepy.}

One of our favorite Food Network shows is The Kitchen. We have started watching it on Saturday mornings to see what we’ll be making for dinner on Sunday.

A few weeks ago, Sunny Anderson made brownies in a waffle maker.

For reals. Who knew you could even do that?? Not me, but I will tell you something: my world is a happier place now that I have this knowledge. Even better, you use a boxed brownie mix. Yay for shortcuts!

So my husband decided to try to make them, but we didn’t have any brownie mix. You know what we did have? Pound cake mix. So he made pound cake waffles. And they were ridonkulous.

Holy moly, these bad boys are delicious.

You just mix up the batter according to the package directions and cook it in your waffle maker like you would regular ol’ waffle batter. HOWEVER {and this is very important!!}: do not overfill your waffle maker. This pound cake batter rises like nothing you’ve ever seen in your life, and if you’re not careful, you will have the world’s most horrifying eruption of cake batter out of the sides of your waffle maker. Not that I know this from experience or anything.

Ahem.

They are absolutely dee-licious. And such a great summertime treat!

Ingredients

1 box pound cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions
1 pint strawberries, sliced
1/2 gallon vanilla bean ice cream, slightly softened

Directions

1. Pour a small amount of batter into your preheated waffle maker {DO NOT use too much batter or it will pour out the sides!}. Cook according to waffle maker’s directions. Repeat with remaining batter, and let waffles cool completely.
2. To assemble ice cream sandwiches, spread a scoop of ice cream on a waffle and top with sliced strawberries. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of ice cream on another waffle and place on top of strawberries. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in freezer until hardened. Repeat with remaining waffles, ice cream and strawberries.
3. Before eating, remove from freezer and allow to stand at room temperature for 10-15 minutes to soften slightly.
