We've taken two classic festive treats and combined it into one decadent dessert. The no-churn ice cream is so easy to make, then simply toast the waffles, top with a mini gingerbread man, a drizzle and a sprinkle and tuck in! See method

  1. Pour the whipping cream into a large bowl, add the ground ginger and whip to medium-stiff peaks. Stir through the cooled coffee and condensed milk.
  2. Put 150g of the gingerbread men in a plastic food bag and bash to chunky crumbs with a rolling pin. Stir the crumbs through the cream mixture, then transfer to a 2ltr container and level the surface. Cover and freeze for at least 4 hrs until solid. Serve immediately or, if freezing for longer, remove from the freezer 15 mins before serving to soften a little.
  3. When ready to serve, bash 30g gingerbread to crumbs as before; set aside. Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl. Lightly toast the waffles, then carefully toss in the cinnamon sugar to coat. Decorate 8 gingerbread men with writing icing and sprinkles, if you like.
  4. Top each waffle with one scoop of ice cream and add a gingerbread man to each plate. Scatter with the crushed gingerbread and sprinkles, then drizzle with golden syrup, if you like.
