What is “rolled ice cream in an egg waffle?”
It’s a next level dessert combining the two food crazes: rolled ice cream and egg waffles. Yes, we’ve posted about both these foods already, but not together as one glorious dessert. When combined, the rolled up hand-made ice cream is wrapped in a freshly-griddled bubble wrap-esque waffle. This made-to-order dessert creates a harmony of contrasting hot & cold elements with crispy and chewy textures that could make this the new apple pie a la mode.
