Following Cronuts, cookie shots, frozen s’mores, and Magic Soufflés, this next creation consists of vanilla ice cream molded into a waffle shape with tapioca pearls and salted Belgian waffle bits. When the espresso, which is spiked with Vermont maple syrup, is poured atop in the manner of a traditional affogato, it melts, and a rep for Ansel tells us that the whole thing turns into a creamy dessert with a texture akin to a “sloshy sundae” or milkshake.
