June 29th marks National Waffle Iron Day, and what better way to celebrate than with a homemade maple ice cream waffle sandwich?
I’ve always been quick to devour anything maple. (It’s second only to coconut in terms of my favorite flavors…I’ve yet to meet a coconut-based food that I don’t love.) Maple-filled chocolates, maple syrup, maple sugar candy, maple fudge, maple cotton candy. You name it, I’ve tried it!
So of course it probably comes as no surprise that maple-walnut holds the top spot amongst my favorite ice cream flavors. I’ll always choose it if I see it on the menu at an ice cream shop (Emack & Bolio’s in NYC does a great maple walnut). But, I’d never tried making my favorite ice cream flavor at home.
