Chocolate Waffles with Ice Cream and Salted Caramel Sauce

ImageSources:  Food network for the waffles, Ben & Jerry’s for the ice cream, and Nosh with Me for the salted caramel sauce.
Changes:  Waffles – none.  Coffee Ice Cream (left) – Used espresso powder in place of instant coffee and added a cup of mini chocolate chips.  Vanilla Oreo Ice Cream (right) – Used ground vanilla bean in place of vanilla extract.  Caramel Sauce – none.
Thoughts:  Both ice creams were great and easy to make.  The espresso chip ice cream ended up being my favorite homemade ice cream so far, but does not make a good bed time snack with the amount of caffeine in it.  The sauce was delicious, but a bit scary to make.  I will definitely make it again.  The chocolate waffles were just okay.  I was hoping for something more chocolatey and brownie-like.  (Perhaps I should have just made brownies.)
