Birthday Waffle Bowl

For My Dad's Birthday this year My Mom decided to try something different.  A Birthday Waffle Bowl.  Since Grandpa Loves waffles, and ice cream sundaes we put both together and made him this!! I should have taken more pics of the building process, but didn't think about it.  

First you need 2 quarts of different ice cream, we had vanilla and black cherry.  You place all the ice cream (in scoops) in the bottom of the bowl (it's prettier if you use a clear bowl, but we didn't have one big enough). You layer waffles (we used Belgian) around and on top of the ice cream.  We layered on sliced strawberries (you could use any fruit) then drizzled caramel and chocolate ice cream topping on.  My Mom whipped up some real whipping cream, then sprinkled with dark chocolate M&M's (another favorite of Grandpa's)

All the kids (that were there) crowded around Gpa for singing. After Gpa blew out his candles he asked the grand-kids 'Where's your dessert?  This bowl is mine!'  The kids got a laugh out of that.

They couldn't wait to dig in!! We dished up a waffle for everyone with the ice cream and toppings.  What a fun new dessert for everyone!  It was sweet, but not too sweet.  I think the waffles were a better choice than cake, very yummy!
