Ice cream hazelnut waffles

10 minutes to prepare Serves 12




This waffles recipe is very useful for any preparation featuring ice cream and can be adapted to any taste. Waffles certainly recall ice cream cones; however, they are much more tasteful than industrial products, and the result will be extraordinary with a very little effort. 

In this version, dark cocoa powder and hazelnuts are used, giving waffles a marvelounutella-like flavor. I love them with raspberry sorbet and cherries in syrup, a combination which reminds me of black forest cake. 

You may personalize your own version of this recipe, too: add your own favorite dry fruits, season it with spices, try it with berries, or with different  ice cream tastes. In a nutshell, give it a chance to seduce you: just 10 minutes and endorphins will be released.

Here are ingredients for 12 waffles:


100 g  sugar
80 g  butter
100 g  chopped hazelnuts
100 g  flour
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

2 egg whites

  1. Melt the butter over low heat in a saucepan
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and add chopped hazelnuts, a pinch of salt, cocoa powder and sugar. Stir vigorously until you obtain a uniform, firm mixture
  3. Beat egg whites until stiff. Add them to the mixture
  4. Cover the baking tray with some baking paper
  5. Then, take small nuts of dough with a spoon, and flatten them to form waffles with about 10 cm diameter. Be careful not to make waffles too thick, otherwise their final shape will not be beautiful
  6. Bake waffles at 180° for 5 minutes, until their edges begin to brown
  7. Take waffles out of the oven and, being careful not to burn your fingers, give them the shape that you prefer: use glasses upside down to make ice-cream bowls or roll them quickly with the help of cylinders from the kitchen to form cones 
  8. Once they are cool and solidified, fill them with your favorite ice-cream. Enjoy!
