Ice Cream Waffle Bowl Tips
Can you use a regular waffle maker to make waffle bowls?
We recommend making your ice cream bowls in a pizzelle maker, which keeps the batter thin and pliable when warm and therefore easier to mold into bowls. Standard waffle makers
often yield waffles that are thicker and softer—not ideal for making sturdy bowls. If you don’t have a pizzelle maker, follow the instructions to make the thinner waffles in your oven.
How do you store ice cream waffle bowls?
Waffle bowls are best the day they are made, but if you have extra, store them in an airtight, lidded container between pieces of paper towel or parchment at room temperature. To crisp them up a little bit, place them on a sheet pan in a low temperature oven for 5-10 minutes, keeping an eye on them to make sure they do not over-brown.
What variations can you make on these ice cream waffle bowls?
Try dipping the edges of your waffle bowls in melted dark, milk or white chocolate
, letting the chocolate cool and harden before filling the bowl. Before the chocolate firms up, add colorful sprinkles
to play things up! You can even paint the inside of your bowls with melted chocolate. To make the bowls chocolate flavored, add a little bit of cocoa to the waffle batter (1-2 tablespoons should do the trick). Fill your ice cream bowls with super-fun flavors of homemade ice cream
