Here in the south we have been having some extreme weather changes. One week it’s freezing temps and the next it’s sunny & 75 degrees out. To take advantage of the warmer days Rachel and I made this cooling sweet treat. It’s really easy and simple to make…no oven required.

Rachel and I enjoyed our sundae while listening to Jon Bellion

You can put anything in a waffle maker, so why not cookie dough? We just used store-bought refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough. Once the giant cookie has been cooked, it taste just like a Chip Ahoy cookie. Bonus, it only takes a matter of minutes for this cookie to cook. You will have a delicious dessert in no time! Whip one of these up and head to the back porch.

For toppings we wanted to keep it light & fresh for our sundae, so we opted for fresh strawberries and sliced banana. The topping possibilities are endless for your sundae……hot fudge sauce, sprinkles, chopped pecans, whipped cream, etc.

Here’s My Notes:

1)It will take about a whole (16.5 ounces) package of cookie dough for one waffle.

2)Don’t over fill you waffle maker.  If you over fill the waffle maker, the cookie dough will run out the side and cause a huge mess…I know.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Waffle Sundae

Yields: 1 waffle; 2 servings

Ingredients:

•1 (16.5) package refrigerated cookie dough

•Ice Cream

•Strawberries, sliced

•Bananas, sliced (we used one large banana)

Directions:

Before you heat up the waffle maker spray it well with non-stick cooking spray. Fill the waffle maker with cookie dough, leaving a 1 and 1/2 inch space from the edge. Plug in the maker and cook the cookie for about 2 minutes. Transfer the cookie to a plate and top it with a few scoops of ice-cream and tons of sliced strawberries and banana. Grab some spoons and Enjoy !

The Sweetheart Milkshake {Lactose Free}

A treat too good not to share.

I constantly stalk the Black Tap‘s Instagram page to see what new creations they have dreamed up. The burgers & fries they post look amazing, but what really catches my attention is their outrageous milkshakes. Seeing their crazy shakes inspired me to make my own version for Valentine’s Day. 

This is a fun, indulgent treat to share with a sweetheart…or like me, with your best friend. 

Here’s My Notes:

1)Yes, I may have went a little overboard with topping this milkshake with a slice of cake, but I think this shake will be just as insane piled high with whipped cream, chocolate drizzle, and cute heart sprinkles. 

2)I did a cookie rim to decorate my glass like the Black Tap does. I covered the top of the glass with store bought chocolate frosting, then packed on finely crushed red velvet Oreos. Tip: red velvet Oreos are amazing frozen! 😉

3)I made this milkshake lactose free, but feel free to use regular ice-cream and milk.

4)Adding a few red velvet Oreos in the milkshake would be delicious.

The Sweetheart Shake

Yields: 1 large shake; 2 servings

Ingredients 

4 (1/2 cup) scoops of lactose free vanilla ice-cream

1/4 cup store bought hot fudge sauce 

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 

Warmed hot fudge, whipped cream, cute heart sprinkles, & any other topping your heart desires😍

Directions 

Blend together the ice-cream, hot fudge, and almond milk on high speed in a blender (I used my Vitamix) until smooth. Pour into prepared glass. Finish with toppings and…

💘Enjoy ! 💘

Check out my other milkshake recipe:

The Most Insane Milkshakes 

I used this red velvet cake recipe to decorate the milkshake.

The Most Insane Milkshakes

I don’t think these milkshakes could get any more insane.

My Insane Kahlua Coffee Milkshake

Emily’s Insane Cotton Candy Milkshake

 

My friend Emily and I have been dreaming up these creations for weeks now. We have been admiring the Black Tap and their insane milkshakes. (I’m dying to try one of their burgers too). But since we’re not going to NYC anytime soon to try either, we decided to make our own insane treats at home. 

Emily decided she wanted to do a cotton candy milkshake with a whimsical theme. I went with more of a grown-up approach and did a coffee theme. I piled on everything I could think of that went with coffee. I made mine lactose free.  I also added ice….that made it  like a frappuccino.

Each of these drinks start with a simple milkshake recipe.  We just chose to go all out with the toppings. But the shakes themselves are delicious, you can tone your own down by just adding some whipped cream to the top….. OR you can go completely crazy..and top your creation however you want.  

I know you’re asking, “why make such outrageously, ridiculous milkshakes that you can’t possibly finish?”       My answer simply is….we ENJOYED every second of it!!!!
