Cookie Dough Stuffed Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich


  • Total Time: 35-40 mins
  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 5 mins
  • Yield: 6 servings




  • 1 1/4 cups warm milk
  • 2 Tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 6 Tbsp butter softened/lightly melted
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Cookie Dough

  • 1 tube ready-to-eat chocolate chip cookie dough

Ice Cream Sandwiches

  • 6-12 waffles
  • 6-12 scoops ice cream
  • Hot fudge & other toppings, optional


  • Non-stick cooking spray or melted butter to grease waffle iron and dough bowl


    1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm milk with the yeast and sugar. Allow the mixture to sit for 5-10 mins or until the mix is foamy and smells like bread.
    2. To the bowl, add the butter and egg, mix a little to combine, and then add 3 cups flour and salt. Knead the dough using a dough hook or your hands until the dough comes together and is smooth, about 3 minutes with a mixer and 5-10 by hand. If the dough seems too sticky, add the remaining 1/2 cup flour. The dough should come together, but be slightly sticky to the touch.
    3. Grease a large bowl and place the dough ball inside. Cover the bowl and let rise in a warm place for at least 15 minutes.
    4. Preheat waffle iron according to your iron's directions.
    5. Working on a floured surface, divide the waffle dough into 12 equal balls. Flatten each ball into a disk and place approx. 1 Tbsp of cookie dough in the center of each. Bring the sides of the waffle dough up and around the cookie dough and pinch the edges together to seal completely.
    6. Grease your waffle iron with cooking spray or melted butter and place 1 dough ball in the center of the iron. Close & cook until just golden on top. Don't over-cook the waffles or the centers will not be gooey. Repeat with the remaining waffles...or just start making ice cream sandwiches and finish later!
    7. Finish the treat by taking a cooked waffle and placing a large scoop of chocolate ice cream on top. If desired, add hot fudge sauce. Either eat it as is or top it with another waffle and make it into a sandwich. Enjoy right away!
