World’s Best Dessert Waffle

world's best dessert waffle

When I was a kid, my dad (Bruce) used to have vanilla ice cream topped with maple syrup and peanuts alomost every night after dinner. I added the waffle but the idea is the same and it rocks!


  • 2 frozen waffles
  • Vanilla ice cream (a good one – don’t skrimp here)
  • Maple syrup
  • 1 can Spanish peanuts (the kind with the red skins and salt on them)
  • Powdered sugar for garnish


  1. Toast your waffles (if you want to make it more romantic you can cut them into heart shapes but right out of the package works)
  2. Top with a scoop – not too much – of vanilla ice cream
  3. Drizzle with maple syrup and top with a handful of the peanuts
  4. Sprinkle with a bit of powdered sugar
  5. Step back and wait for the applause
