HOW TO MAKE ICE CREAM WAFFLE SANDWICHES
Let the ice cream soften a little, then put a scoop in the centre of one waffle biscuit. Squash the other biscuit on top to make a sandwich, then tidy the edges with a palette knife.
Roll in chopped nuts then return to the freezer in a lidded box for around 20 minutes.
You can try any flavour combination you like, but we made chocolate ice cream with pistachio nuts, coffee ice cream with hazelnuts and vanilla ice crea, with salted peanuts.
- 2 caramel waffle biscuits per waffle sandwich, such as Biona
- 1 scoop ice cream per waffle sandwich, such as chocolate, coffee or vanilla flavour
- handful nuts, chopped, for the edges
