Instructions to make state fair tacos
Place the frozen waffles in a single layer and microwave for 15 seconds. They should be pliable.
Form each waffle into a taco shape and place them in a baking dish. A 9×9 baking dish would hold all six waffles pretty snugly.
Freeze the waffles for 30 minutes or until they hold their shape.
Fill each waffle taco with 1 large or 2 small scoops of ice-cream.
Drizzle with chocolate syrup and add a smattering of sprinkles.
Freeze the tacos for about an hour to allow them to harden.
Keep the tacos in the freezer until time to serve.
Let it sit on the counter for 5 minutes before serving.
Just before serving, add a cherry on top.
Keep the leftovers in the freezer.
See how simple these are to make?
Can you store leftovers in the fridge?
Great question! While you might be tempted to just pop them in the fridge to keep until later, it’s just not going to be cold enough to keep them in a frozen state. Instead put them in a sealable container and place them in the freezer. When you’re ready to eat them, they’ll be rock solid frozen like they’re supposed to be!
