Chocolate fudge waffle sundaes


Courtesy: Sarah, Sarah Bakes Gluten-Free

I have never had a chocolate waffle, covered in ice vanilla cream and warm chocolate ganache. Until now. This gluten free vegan chocolate fudge waffle sundae is just down right HEAVENLY!

When I had the thought of making a decadent chocolate waffle, there was no hesitation in my mind. Taking one my favorite things to make my family for breakfast {homemade gluten free waffles} and turning it into a full-fledged, decadent dessert.

I was going for a fudgy, crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside waffle. Achieved. I didn’t want to just stop there though. Why not make it a WAFFLE SUNDAE? Topping that warm waffle with a few scoops of So Delicious Dairy Free cashew milk vanilla ice cream was the first step. Step number two, whipping up a quick batch of my go-to simple chocolate ganache. I drizzled that chocolatey goodness over the top. Yes, my waffle sundae was now complete.

Chocolate overload. Waffles for dessert. All the good things in this recipe!
