Waffles filled with ice cream and toppings make a fun twist on dessert tacos! This one is a kid favorite!

Well, friends, we've made it. Spring is finally here, can you believe it?! I know, I know, it's hard for me to grasp, too! But yes, warmer days are coming and soon we will be packing away our winter coats and boots and bringing out t-shirts and flip flops.

But... not quite yet. At least not here in Pennsylvania! I read someone describe March as "summer in the sun and winter in the shade." That is completely true for my neck of the woods, that's for sure. It's so hard to know how to dress. Especially the kiddos! When we wake up in the morning it's in the 30's and I'm sending them off to school in puffy coats, but by lunch time it's nearing the 70's and all the windows are open!

I'm not complaining one bit! I'd much rather deal with wardrobe annoyances than shoveling snow and salting ice. All things considered, our winter here was pretty mild, but I'm still ready for warmer days. Dinner on the grill, relaxing outside while the kids play, lightning bugs coming out when it's dark, and some ice cream for dessert before bed. Heaven!

It is ridiculous how easy these Ice Cream Tacos are to make, but I promise, it will be the IT dessert this spring and summer at your house! We'll be celebrating Wesley's 5th birthday this summer and I'm already planning an Ice Cream Taco Bar for my sweet-treat-loving guy! Customize with your favorite flavor frozen waffles, Blue Bunny® Ice Cream, and various toppings. I just love this fun twist on traditional tacos!

Ice Cream Tacos

  • 10 frozen waffles
  • 3 cups Blue Bunny® Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 1/2 cup chocolate syrup
  • 10 maraschino cherries
  • sprinkles, whipped cream
Cooking Directions
  1. Lay frozen waffles flat on a cookie sheet and allow to thaw, about 10 minutes. Form each into a taco shape and fit together side-by-side in a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  2. Fill each "taco" evenly with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Freeze until firm.
  3. Top each with whipped cream, sprinkles, and a cherry. Keep frozen, allow tacos to sit for 5 minutes before ready to serve.

My boys thought these were crazy fun and even I have to admit, they tasted amazing! They keep your hands mess-free from the ice cream, so these are perfect for kid parties, too!

The flavor possibilities really are endless with how many different kinds of frozen waffles and flavors of Blue Bunny® ice cream there are. I had a seriously hard time narrowing down what to try during my last grocery stop at Walmart. I settled on Blue Bunny® Mint Chocolate Chip, Blue Bunny® Homemade Vanilla, and Blue Bunny® Double Strawberry. 

I really love that with the new clear packaging, you can see the yummy flavor swirls! I can't wait to try Ice Cream Tacos with chocolate chip waffles and Blue Bunny® Mint Chocolate Chip with a drizzle of chocolate hardening syrup. YUM!!
