Strawberry Waffle Sundaes

Seeing this magazine cover on his mother's book stool, Michael requested this dessert for his birthday.

After a birthday meal of Lasca’s Chicken Parmasen and penne with tomato sauce, we made the waffles and everyone built their own sundae. Diane provided the chocolate sauce - the famous fabled Schrafft’s.

1 container (1 pound) fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
Krusteaz Belgian Waffle Mix
9 cups Neapolitan ice cream
6 tablespoons whipped topping
Chocolate sauce, for drizzling

1. In a medium-size bowl, toss together strawberries, orange juice and sugar. Refrigerate.
2. Make waffles, as per manufacturers's directions.
3. To serve - place the makings on the dessert table and allow everyone to build their own sundae.

Suggestion: Place one waffle section on a plate. Top with 1 ½ cups of ice cram, ½ cup of strawberry mixture and a second waffle. Add a few more strawberries and dollop with one teaspoon whipped topping. Drizzle with chocolate sauce and serve.

MAKES 12 servings (1/2 stack each)
PREP 10 minutes
COOK 3 minutes each batch

Mario Batali take notice!

Mix it up by adding bananas or raspberries to your fruit topping opt for solid flavor ice creams.

Emeril Lagasse add some BAM! to your meal.
