Red Velvet Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe
This recipe is simple enough that kids can assist with some of the steps. The hardest part is waiting for them to freeze; we were ready to dig in right away.
Ingredients & Supplies
- Red Velvet Cake Mix
- Red, White and Blue sprinkles
- Mayfield Creamery vanilla ice cream
- Cooking spray
- Waffle Maker
- Mixer for Cake Batter
First, pre-heat the waffle maker to medium heat.
Meanwhile, mix the Red Velvet Cake batter to the box’s instructions. Feel free to make homemade red velvet cake batter if you have the time. With a newborn and preschooler in the house, I do not have the time to make homemade anything.
Spray the inside of the waffle maker with non-stick cooking spray.
Pour cake batter inside.
We made our sandwiches two different ways – a full waffle and then a waffle that was more of a circle shape. To get the circle shape, simply pour the mixture in the center of the square and do not allow it to fill the entire area.
Close your waffle maker onto the cake batter and wait for timer to go off. Consider testing out one waffle first to see if you like yours more fluffy or crispy. Play with your heat settings.
Allow your red velvet cake waffles to cool before scooping the vanilla ice cream on top. If not, you may find a melted ice cream sandwich in your hands instead of in your mouth.
There are two ways to finish this recipe:
If you plan on eating them right away you can scoop the vanilla ice cream in between two red velvet cake waffles, cover with sprinkles and enjoy!
You can do the same step and place the sandwiches in the freezer for 3-4 hours to serve later.
Here’s an example of the ice cream sandwich we made with the full size waffles. To make this recipe extra tasty, pick up Mayfield Creamery ice cream.
