Breakfast of Champions: Domination Cookie Dough Waffles

Oh, you know we were going to go there. These waffles may appear to look like ordinary waffles, but believe us, these are not ordinary waffles! These are the extra special cherry on top with fudge, but only if you want.

These waffles have a hidden surprise inside. Something that is really the only reason you’re on this site. Something that we love so much, we made an entire business out of it….cookie dough!

Now, you can do one of two things with this recipe.

Option one: make your waffle, put it on a plate, add a giant scoop of ice cream, a drizzle of hot fudge sauce and dig in with a fork and knife + a giant glass of ice-cold milk.

Option two: make your waffles and let them cool slightly, add a scoop of ice cream and a little fudge sauce. Add another waffle and open BIG. This is an incredibly messy, but deliciously fun option!

Either way, you are going to be in dessert, ice cream, and waffle heaven. 🤤

Domination Cookie Dough Waffles Recipe

cookie dough waffles


  • 1 1/4 cups warm milk
  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter softened/lightly melted
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pint of Domination Cookie Dough


Step 1: In a large mixing bowl combine the warm milk with the yeast and sugar. Allow the mixture to sit 5-10 mins or until the mix is foamy and smells like bread.

Step 2: Add the butter and egg, mix a little to combine and then add 3 cups flour and the salt.

Step 3: Knead the dough until the dough comes together and is smooth, about 5-10 by hand. If the dough seems too sticky, add the remaining 1/2 cup flour. The dough should come together, but be slightly sticky to touch. Grease a large bowl and place the dough ball inside. Cover the bowl and let rise in a warm place for at least 15 minutes.

Step 4: Preheat a waffle iron according to your iron's directions.

Step 5: Working on a floured work surface, divide the waffle dough into 12 equal balls. Flatten each ball into a circle disk and place about a tablespoon of cookie dough in the center of each. Bring the sides of the dough up and around the cookie dough and pinch the edges together to seal completely.

Step 6: Grease your waffle iron with cooking spray and place 1 dough ball right in the center of the iron. Cook until just golden on top. You don't want to overcook the waffles or the centers will not be gooey. Repeat with the remaining waffles...or just start making ice cream sandwiches and finish later!


Take a cooked waffle and place a large scoop of chocolate ice cream on top. If desired, add hot fudge sauce. Either eat as is, with a fork + knife or top with another waffle and make into a sandwich. Do NOT hesitate do devour!
