Sweet Chocolate Waffles with Strawberries and Ice Cream

And mind you, these aren’t just your basic waffles with sweet stuff on top.

These recipes reinvent the classic waffles, turning them into even more delightful treats.

In this round-up, we’ll give the basic waffles some extra lovin’ to create the most stunning and mouthwatering sweets.

Don’t mind the calories. You deserve to indulge yourself once in a while.

Drooling yet? I definitely am, so let’s get this show on the road.

1. Waffle Iron Churros

Who says you have to stick to a waffle batter when making waffles? As long as you have an iron waffle, anything goes.

This phenomenal dessert tastes just like churros, only, it takes the form of waffles.

Because of the waffles’ unique shape, these churros are much crispier than usual.

A dusting of cinnamon sugar and a chocolate dip completes the delightful churros experience.

2. Cake Batter Dessert Waffles With Ice Cream

Think Funfetti cake, but in waffle form, plus ice cream on top. It’s the perfect dessert for sweet tooths!

It’s unique, colorful, and most especially, delicious. A waffle iron is used to “bake” a cake mix batter, so there’s no need for an oven.

It’s much easier, but the result is even more delightful.

Topped with your favorite ice cream flavor and sprinkles, and voila.

3. Chocolate Waffle Cookie Dessert

Is it a cookie or a waffle? Who cares what it’s called? The only important thing is that it’s delectable. 

A double chocolate chip dough is cooked in a waffle iron, creating unique cookies with a wonderful checkered design.

Those nooks and crannies aren’t only pretty, but also create a lovely texture. Top with ice cream and berry sauce, and you’re golden.

4. Triple Decker Fudgy Chocolate Waffle Pie

I can’t believe it took me so long to realize that you can turn waffles into a layer cake.

This idea is genius! Whoever came up with this dessert deserves an award.

Cake waffles are layered with smooth and creamy vanilla filling and topped with fresh berries and a dusting of powdered sugar.

The recipe calls for a chocolate cake mix, but feel free to try other cake mix flavors, as well.

5. Elvis Dessert Waffles

To say that these dessert waffles are fully loaded is an understatement. 

Crisp waffles are smothered with jam, peanut butter, fresh raspberries, praline peanuts, whipped cream, ice cream, and delectable bananas brulee for a tremendous dessert. 

You can even take it to the next level by sprinkling crumbled bacon on top for that lovely sweet and salty flavor contrast.

I’m sure the King of rock and roll would approve.

6. Brownie Waffles

While classic brownies are already awesome, this version is even more exceptional.

Cooking the brownie batter in a waffle maker creates a lovely, crisp outer crust.

The brownies remain fudgy and ooey-gooey on the inside, creating a wonderful textural variety.

Top these beauties with vanilla ice cream and/or whatever sweet things you can think of for a seriously addictive treat.

7. Banana Pudding Dessert Waffles

Vanilla waffles are topped with bananas and vanilla pudding. Finished off with whipped cream, this is a delicious banana pudding disguised as waffles.

From the crispy and dense waffles to the sweet bananas to the creamy pudding, the flavor and textures in this dessert are simply sensational.

Here’s the best part – they’re surprisingly weight-watcher-friendly. It couldn’t get any better than that.

8. Ice Cream Waffle Sundae

This isn’t simply waffles topped with ice cream, folks. Instead, the waffle batter itself contains melted ice cream (any flavor works), creating a sinful and heavenly treat.

Topped with even more ice cream and chocolate syrup, this dessert is definitely decadent.

But it’s also topped with fresh fruit, so it’s still considered healthy. Wink wink 🙂

9. Snickers Peanut Butter Dessert Waffles

Are you a sucker for Snickers Extreme Peanut Butter? Then you’ll fall in love with these dessert waffles.

Peanut Butter Snickers are present in both the waffle batter AND the topping, so its flavor definitely shines through.

Topped with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and melted peanut butter, these waffles are the perfect dessert for chocolate-peanut butter aficionados.

10. Butterfinger Dessert Waffle

Here’s another amazing recipe that showcases one of my favorite candy bars. 

Chocolate waffles are studded with Butterfinger pieces and topped with chocolate, caramel, whipped cream, and even more Butterfinger pieces.

I’ll give you a moment to take all that goodness in.

You’d think this dessert would be cloyingly sweet, but it’s not. The whipped topping balances out the flavors.

11. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookies

Regular oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are excellent. Turn them into waffles, and they’re even more spectacular.

If you enjoy cookies with crisp edges, you will absolutely love this recipe.

The waffle maker gives the cookies an extra crispy outer crust. The interior remains soft and chewy, creating a perfect balance of textures.

12. Waffle Cone Cupcakes

Moist and fudgy cupcakes are stuffed in crisp waffle cones and topped with chocolate buttercream frosting.

Oh. My. God. These waffle cone cupcakes are out-of-this-world amazing.

I can’t even begin to explain how outstanding these cupcakes are. First of all, look how pretty these ice cream cone-looking cupcakes are. 

They’re also divine, both flavor and texture-wise.

The crispy cone provides a lovely textural contrast to the silky frosting and fudgy cupcakes. They get a perfect score.

13. Pancake Waffle Cupcake With Maple Frosting

Here’s another cupcake recipe that will absolutely blow your tastebuds away.

The cupcakes are made from pancake batter, so they’re extremely light and airy.

They’re frosted with maple buttercream, drizzled with maple syrup, and finished with a piece of mini-waffle.

They’re the ultimate breakfast dessert!

14. Bananas Foster Dessert Waffles

Bananas foster are already fabulous on their own, what more if they’re added to waffles?

This 2-in-1 dessert is the epic mash-up you didn’t think you needed.

For this dessert, you can either make the waffles from scratch or use Eggos.

The caramelized bananas are definitely the star, so it’s okay if the waffles are store-bought.

The waffles are topped with sweet and buttery caramelized bananas, ice cream, and whipped cream, and they’re finished with a drizzle of caramel.

The diet starts tomorrow.

15. Layered Vanilla Waffle Cake

Here’s another phenomenal layered waffle cake, for ya! It’s easy, but it’s incredibly delicious. It’s the perfect dessert for a lazy weekend.

This cake has a whopping five layers of vanilla waffle cake, filled and frosted with whipped cream, and topped with fresh berries.

It’s hearty, yet light and refreshing at the same time.

16. Chocolate Pudding Pie Waffle Cups

In this dessert, smooth and silky chocolate pudding is given a crispy waffle crust to create a lovely textural variety.

There’s no need to make waffle cups from scratch for this one – store-bought is completely fine.

The cups will be coated with melted chocolate, anyway, so they’ll be insanely delicious even if not made from scratch.

The chocolate-coated cups are then filled with chocolate pudding and topped with whipped cream and chocolate chips.

It’s a chocolate lover’s dream come true.

17. Belgian Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches

Instead of topping waffles with ice cream, why not make ice cream sandwiches? It offers the same amazing goodness, but much more fun to eat.

Two pieces of Belgian waffles are stuffed with ice cream and garnished with sprinkles around the sides.

Feel free to use whatever ice cream flavor, mix-ins, and garnishes your heart desires. 

18. Strawberry Shortcake Waffles

It’s a strawberry shortcake, but instead of cake, you’ll use waffles. Smart, am I right? 

This shortcake may not be as light and airy as usual, but the waffles give it a lovely texture.

The contrast between the crisp and dense waffles and light and fluffy whipped cream frosting is astounding!

19. Snickerdoodle Waffle Cookies With Cream Cheese Glaze

If you’re a fan of snickerdoodle cookies, you’ll fall in love with this dessert.

Where do I even begin? The snickerdoodle batter is cooked in a waffle maker. It’s still soft and chewy inside, but the waffle pockets create an additional layer of texture.

The glaze on top is made from cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla.

It’s wonderfully sweet, but it’s balanced out by the tanginess of the cream cheese. 

Together, the two components create one of the most exceptional versions of snickerdoodle on the planet.

20. Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookies

No need to turn on the oven to make scrumptious chocolate chip cookies!

Just put the dough in a waffle maker, press, and 2 to 3 minutes later, your cookies are ready to be devoured.

These cookies are crisp on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside, and loaded with chocolate chips in every bite.

21. Oreo Cheesecake Stuffed Waffle Cones

These waffle cones are the definition of decadence.

Waffle cones are coated with melted chocolate and cookie crumbs and filled with cookies and cream cheesecake. How ridiculously delectable is that?

The waffle cookies are super crisp and crunchy. The maple frosting is rich and creamy and has just the right level of sweetness.

23. Chocolate Waffle Fruit Pizza

Thick and fluffy waffles are covered with chocolate and topped with various fruits and berries for a stunning dessert pizza.

The great thing about this dessert is you’re free to use whatever toppings you can imagine. Don’t stop at fruits and berries!

Add mini-marshmallows, chocolate chips, crushed candy, caramel syrup – you name it. The more, the better.

24. Raspberry And White Chocolate Waffle Pudding

Instead of bread, use waffles to make pudding! It’s a great idea to make the most out of stale, leftover waffles.
