These Waffle HeartIce Cream Sandwiches are one of my favorite Valentine’s Day treats because they are super easy to make and always delicious! This quick Valentine Dessert can be ready in less than 3 minutes!
You can use store-bought or homemade waffles for this recipe. We opted for homemade because we have a mini heart waffle maker that made the perfect sized waffles. I found that homemade waffles work best if you freeze them for at least an hour before using them. This helps to slow the melting of the ice cream.
Let your ice cream soften a bit, and using a medium cookie scoop with release, scoop out one spoonful of ice cream, place on the bottom waffle, and using another waffle, press the ice cream down until it’s about 3/4 – 1″ thick. If the ice cream is coming out the sides, scrape off the excess with a knife or spatula.
Once all of your waffle ice cream sandwiches are filled, place them back in the freezer for at least an hour to set.
About 10 minutes before the hour is up, make the ganache for dipping!
What you need:
1 cup heavy cream
Put the chocolate chips in a heat safe bowl and set aside.
In a small sauce pan on the stove, heat the cream over medium heat until it’s just about to boil.
Turn off the heat and pour cream over the chocolate chips. Without stirring, let the cream and chocolate sit for 5 minutes.
When 5 minutes is up, using a whisk or spatula, start stirring in a circular motion in the middle of bowl. Keep this going until all the chocolate and cream has combined and there are no lumps.
Set up the sprinkle station before removing the waffle ice cream sandwiches from the freezer. Quickly dip each sandwich in the ganache and then place on Solo’s 10″ paper plates. Sprinkle with heart sprinkles of your choice, and set in the freezer again for another 10 minutes.
