Chocolate Cake Waffle Cookies with Banana Ice Cream #CreativeCookieExchange

Yum
July is a hot month for those of us here in the US, and ice cream is the favorite treat of summer.  This month, #CreativeCookieExchange challenged us to find a cookie that would go well with ice cream, nense the inspiration for the cake style cookie.

Cake and Ice Cream go hand-in-hand and so does this take on a waffle cookie.  These cookies are delicious plain with the ice cream, or you can jazz them up with the glaze recipe I provide. However you chose to serve them, they are delicious!



Chocolate Cake Waffle Cookies

makes approx 36 cookies

1 cake mix (buy a good brand for the best flavor)
2 eggs
1/2 c water
2 T oil
1 t vanilla
1 t cinnamon

Preheat waffle pan.  I used an electric one.  Beat all ingredients together.  Spray waffle pan with cooking spray.  Drop 1 T of batter onto the waffle pan.  My pan is round, with four divisions.  I placed 1 T of batter in the center of each division.  Close waffle pan and cook for 2 minutes, or until desired doneness.  Continue until all batter is used.  Let cool.

Cocoa Glaze

1/2 stick of butter, melted
1/2 c cocoa
1/2 c powdered sugar
1 t vanilla or almond extract

Beat together until sugar is dissolved.  Dip cookies into the glaze and let harden.

Blend Tec Banana Ice Cream

Serves 2

1 frozen banana
1/2 c crushed ice
1/2 c French vanilla coffee creamer

Add to Blend Tec in this order: creamer, ice and peeled and quartered banana.  Process on ice cream mode.  Serve immediately or store in freezer until ready to use.


Enjoy these other fine cookie and ice cream combinations!  I can't wait!
