Growing up, breakfast for dinner was 100% my favorite kind of meal. Shocker, I know. But there was just something so decadent and SO satisfying about some big ol’ fluffy pancakes or a crisp Belgium waffle smothered in unnecessarily large amounts of sweet maple syrup (just kidding, there’s no such thing as “unnecessarily large amounts” of maple syrup). Plus, it was totally a once-in-a-blue-moon sort of occurrence in our household, so it was an occasion to be savored.
Seriously guys, this was my face EVERY. TIME. one of my parents asked if I wanted breakfast for dinner.
And now that I’m adult, this is pretty much my face every time I remember breakfast for dinner is a social acceptable thing and I’m an adult so I do what I want. Obviously, my inner foodie is an overly excited Chris Pratt. And I can totally live with that.

But what kind of dessert follows breakfast for dinner? And no, that breakfast dish doesn’t count as dessert. I see dinner in the description ergo it should be followed with dessert.

- 2 cups heavy whipping cream chilled
- 14 oz sweetened condensed milk chilled
- 2 tbsp butter extract
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- ⅓ cup mini chocolate chips
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, using the whisk attachment, whip the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
- Add the sweetened condensed milk and butter extract, and continue whipping until the ice cream is light and fluffy, and holds stiff peaks.
- Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and spoon about half of the ice cream mixture into it. Drizzle with half of the maple syrup and half of the chocolate chips, using a butter knife to gently swirl it all together.
- Add the remaining ice cream mixture, maple syrup, and chocolate chips, and again swirl it all together with a butter knife.
- Place the ice cream in the freezer and allow to freeze overnight or for 6-8 hours.
