How to make waffle cone bowls

Waffle Bowls

I’ve really been enjoying my new pizzelle maker lately and eating more ice cream than usual as a result of the fact that creamy ice cream is a good match for the crispy waffle cookies in ice cream sandwiches. Since the pizzelles taste like waffle cones, turning them into ice cream cones seems like an obvious option, too. Unfortunately, the pizzelles made with my baker are a little on the small side, and while I did successfully wrap some of them into cones, it wasn’t such an easy task. Instead, I’ve opted to make waffle cone bowls for my ice cream with these pizzelles, which is just as tasty and a lot easier.

The pizzelles are very malleable when they are hot and fresh off the baker. To shape them into a bowl, take out a small bowl of some kind and set it near the machine. A 6-oz pyrex dish is perfect, but any small dish of similar size will work. A wider dish will give you a shallower bowl. Bake the pizzelle as you normally would, take it off the machine and press it down into the bowl, covering the bottom and sides (as much as you can) with the waffle cookie. It only takes a few seconds for the cookie to set up into a nice, crisp bowl shape, in which you can serve ice cream or any other dessert treat.

    Love this idea! At my old job every Christmas our Italian boss would break out the pizzelle maker and give me a big bowl of the extra bits that he had cut off from the sides. Needless to say, I STILL ate about half the batch…

    I always said they tasted like waffle cones. Now to find me a pizzelle maker!

    This makes me want to run out and buy a pizelle maker today! I have borrowed my grandmother’s pizelle maker a few times and made them, but now I think I need my own!

    As a suggestion, use two bowls – one to put the pizelle in, and the other to push down on top of it to finish the shape 🙂

    Hi. I love this! one of my favorite desserts is ice cream. But it gets a little boring just eating ice cream from a bowl. I love waffle cones but they can get a little messy and a waffle bowl is probably the best thing. I never knew how to make them though. This recipe sounds absolutely amazing and I can not wait to try it the next time that I have ice cream.
