Chocolate Cake Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches

5 from 2 votes
Super easy ice cream sandwiches made with a doctored box cake mix and vanilla ice cream!
Prep Time 3 hours
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 3 hours 5 minutes
Servings 12 servings (up to)


  • 1 box Devils Food cake mix, plus ingredients according to the box - see note below
  • Oil or other nonstick spray
  • Vanilla ice cream


  • Preheat your waffle iron and spray nonstick spray.
  • Make cake mix according to the box directions, substituting plain yogurt for the oil and skim milk for the water. It's healthier, and frankly tastier!
  • Using a ½ cup measuring cup, scoop a "rounded" ½ cup of mix into your waffle maker.
  • Depending on how your waffle maker works, cook the waffle until it's cake-like. You don't want them to be crispy, but a cake-consistency. You'll be surprised how easily they pop out when they're done, and how well they stay together.
  • Lay each cooked waffle on a baking rack to cool, and then transfer them over to a sheet of wax paper on a cookie sheet. Keep adding a sheet of wax paper in between each layer until you've made them all.
  • Stick those bad boys in the freezer for a few hours.
  • When you take them out of the freezer a few hours later they'll still be soft, but they'll be firm enough to hold the ice cream. Now pile on as much ice cream as you want, and INHALE THEM. I dare you not to.


  • I highly recommend substituting yogurt for oil, and skim milk for water.
  • Regarding serving sizes:
    12 servings = If you break each waffle into four pieces each.
    6 servings = If you break each waffle into half.
    3 servings = If you're like me, and you just plop whole waffles on top of each other.
