Follow instructions to make waffle mix. To make mini waffles, ladle 2 oz. of waffle mix on waffle iron and bake according to instructions. When fully cooked, remove waffle and place inside of a small glass bowl to make bowl shape. Let cool. Pour 2 Tbsp. of melted chocolate in bowl. Fully coat inside of bowl with chocolate and drain excess chocolate. Let chocolate cool. Store in air tight container. To assemble, scoop a #30 scoop (1-3/16 oz. each) of Blue Bunny® White Chocolate Caramel Cluster, Chocolate Caramel Cashew, and Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream into three separate waffle bowls. Top each bowl with toppings listed above.


Use chopped brownie pieces instead of cheesecake bites for the strawberry cheesecake waffle bowl. Use Blue Bunny® Peanut Butter & Fudge Ice Cream instead of White Chocolate Caramel Cluster Ice Cream.


All waffle bowls can be pre-made and stored in the freezer on sheet pans until ready to serve. For best dipping results when using a 3-gallon tub, begin scooping close to the tub wall, cutting ½ inch down.
