Chocolate Waffle Ice Cream Sundaes! I'm talking Chocolate Waffles y'all, with coffee ice cream, dulce de leche caramel, and you can't forget the whipped cream! Now is this a Valentine treat or what?
Inspired by my new KitchenAid Pro Line Waffle Baker, I promised waffles for every Wednesday in February and I knew this weeks' waffle had to be dessert. I love to toast waffles and eat them with ice cream and chocolate or caramel sauce. It's one of the easiest and most delicious desserts.
Actually the waffles themselves are really good and the kids will likely enjoy them as they head out the door for school this week. They are a little sweet but not overly sweet or chocolaty. They are just perfect for snacking or breakfast in a hurry.
But when you pop them in the toaster and add a scoop of your favorite ice cream (mine is coffee) and a little caramel sauce you have a super easy dessert that is perfect for special occasions such as Valentine's Day!
Chocolate Waffle Ice Cream Sundaes
- ⅓ cup butter
- ⅓ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1 ⅔ cup milk
- 2 eggs
In a small microwave safe bowl, add butter and chocolate chips. Microwave for 3o seconds, stir and return to microwave for an additional 30 seconds, whisk until smooth and chocolate is melted. Whisk in cocoa powder and set aside.
In a large batter bowl add flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Whisk together until well combined. Add milk, eggs and chocolate mixture. Stir together just until combined.
Preheat waffle iron.
Pour about 1 cup of batter into waffle iron and bake 2-3 minutes or until waffles are browned and cooked through. Place on a wire rack until ready to serve.
- 1 chocolate waffle, cut into quarters
- 4 scoops ice cream (I like coffee ice cream)
- ¼ cup dulce de leche caramel (slightly warmed in microwave)
- ½ cup sweetened whipped cream
To assemble sundaes.
Toast waffles in a toaster until lightly toasted. Place each in a bowl and top with 1 scoop of ice cream. Top with 1 tablespoon dulce de leche and about 2 tablespoons whipped cream.
