These Chocolate Raspberry Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches deliver breakfast and dessert sandwiched between the sweetest of hearts!
Chocolate Raspberry Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches are the perfect treat to welcome summer, officially! The weather, although wet, has been rather warm these past few weeks, so it has felt like summer for a while. Still, I felt a formal welcome was in order.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed my steady diet of frozen treats from some of my fave joints, to my homemade concoctions. Ice cream and ice pops are synonymous with summer and my childhood and I can’t seem to get enough these days.
As a result, my ice cream maker is getting quite the workout these days.
I love my Kitchen Aid Ice Cream Maker Attachment, but if I could, I would shorten freeze time to remove the wait between whipping up batches of ice cream. The second wish comes from the Dude and that is around the space the bowl takes up in the freezer. It drives him nutty, but guess who eats most of the ice cream it produces???
Well, he is about to enjoy even more ice cream and get a little nuttier, because we now have a second ice cream attachment. Oddly, he made the second purchase! Something about a big box chain closeout sale and a deal that could not be passed up. Hey, I ain’t complaining and neither can he, ever again… LOL
I am beyond excited to make multiple flavours at once!!
Let’s start with the creamy, tangy one in these Chocolate Raspberry Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches! Did you catch my story of the making of these waffles over on Instagram? If not, you can see some of it in this post.
I love the pairing of chocolate and raspberries, so for these waffled hearts, I used both dark chocolate and cocoa powder for a super chocolatey result. I am a Rodelle Ambassador, so I am provided with their products to use in my recipes. I am a big fan of their vanilla products and baking cocoa, and have been using them long before I became an ambassador.
They are running a wonderful Summer Sweetstakes at the moment, including a bunch of their products, Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer and Ice Cream Attachment!! Everything you need to whip up your own batch of Chocolate Raspberry Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches.
Homemade Raspberry Frozen Yogurt (or not…)
The ice cream in these Chocolate Raspberry Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches could better be described as frozen yogurt. With just four ingredients, it comes together fairly quickly. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, simply which it in your blender or food processor and freeze.
They freeze well and can be enjoyed throughout the summer. Simply, wrap the assembled sandwiched well in plastic wrap and store in a freezer-safe, airtight container. Or, you can freeze the waffles on their own and fill with store-bought ice cream, or with toasted with yogurt and fruit whenever the craving hits. Easy peasy, yummy!

Over low heat, melt the butter and chocolate together in a small saucepan. Set aside to cool.
Use a hand whisk to whisk the eggs until light and fluffy. Whisk in the milk and vanilla bean paste. Combine with the sugar.
Sift the dry ingredients together and combine with the egg mixture until smooth.
Cook according to your waffle's maker's instructions.
Make the chocolate shell:
Melt chocolate in 10-second intervals in the microwave. Stir in oil until fully combined. Allow to cool.
Assemble the sandwiches:
Use a cookie cutter to shape the frozen yogurt and sandwich between two waffles. Dip in chocolate, allow a few seconds to set, then wrap and return to the freezer until ready to enjoy.
