Nutella Ice Cream Sandwich Pizzelles

Nutella ice cream sandwich pizzelles

Pizzelle may be something you’ve never heard of before now. These thin Italian cookies look like waffles but are crispy like crackers. When I spotted them in my local World Market store I wasn’t sure what to do with them, but knew I wanted to try them. My dad’s side of the family originated from Sicily and grew up in New York, so I had a feeling these would bring some nostalgia to the dinner table.

By the way, pizzelles can be eaten on their own, but I thought I’d do a fun twist by making them into ice cream sandwiches. Then I added Nutella to the mix….holy yumminess batman!

Okay, so here’s what you need to pull off this incredibly easy and delicious dessert recipe.
