Last month I started working with Dreyer’s Slow Churned light ice cream and created this delicious Ice Cream Sundae with Champagne Soaked Strawberries. It’s not just for New Years! I am having guests next week and they will be enjoying it for dessert.
This Sunday evening we are hosting some friends with kids and I decided to make another fun dessert the kids and adults would both love! As I have said before our freezer is always stocked with Dreyer’s Slow Churned light ice cream. ALWAYS. Hmmm…what else could I make with ice cream?
Ice cream sandwiches.
In the past I have made ice cream sandwiches with chocolate chip cookies, you know, the basic. I wanted to create something different so I spent some time perfecting waffle cookies. These babies are so good you will wish I never shared the recipe with you!
The beauty of these ice cream sandwiches is that you can serve them plain or you can dip them in white or milk or even dark chocolate. You can sprinkle them with color and make them a holiday favorite. You can do anything you want. Which means? There’s always a reason for a Dreyer’s Slow Churned light ice cream Sandwich!
Waffle Cookie Ingredients
½ cup of light brown sugar
½ cup of sugar
¾ cup of melted butter
1 large egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup of all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon of salt
¼ teaspoon of baking soda
½ cup chopped pecans
White chocolate for melting
Waffle Cookie How To
Mix the butter and sugars together, and then add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix lightly until well combined. Don’t overmix. Add all-purpose flour, salt, baking soda and mix again only until ingredients are combined.
Turn on waffle iron. Mine has a 1-4 scale for temperature. I make the waffles on three.
While the waffle iron is heating up, put the pecans into a nut grinder and grind until fine.
Lightly spray your waffle iron with cooking spray. In each of the four squares drop about ¼ cup of the mixture. Close and cook until brown.
Remove from the waffle iron. Let cool while you make your next batch, then lightly press with a spatula to flatten.
In a double broiler melt your melting chocolate.
Dip half of the waffle cookie into the white chocolate. Place on parchment or wax paper and sprinkle with your favorite sprinkles. Let sit until hardened. (You can speed up the process by putting them in the freezer for five minutes).
Put one scoop of ice cream between two cookies and very gently push together. Voila! A homemade waffle cookie ice cream sandwich. Enjoy.
The great thing about these? You can use multi colored birthday sprinkles for birthdays,
pink and red sprinkles for Valentine’s Day…
Green and gold for St. Patrick’s Day…
Crushed candy canes for Christmas…
…blue and silver for Hannukah…you get the idea.
While I chose to feature Dreyer’s Slow Churned Light Vanilla Ice cream because it is the perfect filling for decorative waffle cookies, you can make these delicious ice cream sandwiches with any of your favorite Dreyer’s Slow Churned light ice cream.

Dreyer’s ice cream is one company with two names: West of the Rocky Mountains, the ice cream is Dreyer’s; while the EDY’S® name appears east of the Rockies. Visit Dreyers.com or Edys.com for inspiration on how to incorporate Slow Churned light ice cream into your next get together!
