Plug in your waffle iron for a sinful, sweet treat!  Prepare yourself, these decadent ice cream sandwiches are next level. Mouth-watering, cinnamon-sugar churros (waffled) pair perfectly with large scoops of ice cream and a chocolaty drizzle.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Vanilla ice cream

How to Make It

  1. In a medium saucepan, heat 1 cup water, the butter, sugar, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon over medium-high heat until bubbling at the edges. Add flour and whisk until no lumps of flour remain.

  2. Remove from heat. Add the eggs one at a time, whisking well after each addition. The dough will be very glossy and thick. Let stand 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, preheat a Belgian waffle iron and spray with cooking spray. Spoon 1/4 cup dough into center of each of the 4 waffle sections. Close lid and cook until golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Repeat with remaining dough.

  4. Meanwhile, microwave cream 2 minutes. Quickly stir in chocolate and set aside. Mix sugar and cinnamon on a small plate.

  5. Coat cooked waffles in cinnamon sugar mixture. Top 4 waffles with ice cream and chocolate sauce, then top each with a second waffle. Sprinkle more cinnamon-sugar on top.
