Lately I’ve been reading a lot of blog posts that contain waffles. A lot of waffles. This leaves me craving a crispy, crunchy, waffle almost more than a cupcake. Almost. I love waffles, but I don’t usually eat them in the morning, I like them more..decadent.
This may just be my new favorite dessert. The crispy texture of the warm waffle, with the cold melting sweetness of the (coconut milk) ice cream was delectable.
I must confess, I am a digger..an ice cream digger. This cookie dough ice cream didn’t stand a chance against me and my spoon. I dig, and I dig, and I dig..until all that’s left is a mushy mess of milk and chocolate. Let’s be honest though, no one buys chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream for the chocolate chunks..it’s all about the dough!
I know I’m not the only one that does this though, in fact it’s more common than you would think. I guarantee at least 2/3 of the comments I get on this post will admit to being a dough digger. No shame in our game! This cookie dough ice cream was the perfect balance to the waffle, but other great combos would be classic vanilla or chocolate, and fancier combos like chocolate brownie, or mocha almond fudge. MMMMM…mocha.
Just like that..I have another post dedicated entirely to one tasty treat. When the treats are that good, they deserve their own post!! I’m also trying to figure out my camera on my own (I still haven’t opened my manual book.) I’m discovering what works best as far as locations, lighting, backdrops (for example: This light colored backdrop doesn’t work for the top half of this photo, and a darker color would have been better for the ice cream.)
Needless to say, I’m having a ton of fun playing photographer despite my amateur shots. What a great hobby to develop.
- Have you tried the ice cream/waffle combo?
- What flavor would YOU put on top?
- Are you an ice cream digger?
