The Baked Bear's logo reveals two important things about polar bears. 1: They look great in Ray-Bans, and 2: they prefer chocolate chip cookies. Good to know.
The fudgy brownies paired deliciously with the mint chocolate ice cream.

Warming the Waffle
The assembled waffle and ice cream sandwich spends a few seconds getting warmed up inside the press. It's at a low enough temperature that the waffle warms up without the ice cream melting.
Waffle Sandwich, Complete
The final product. Check out the crisp edges.
Cookies on Standby
Racks of soft, chewy cookies were standing by.
M&M and Red Velvet Cookies
These two cookies combine to make one great ice cream sandwich. Try it with the cookies and cream ice cream for a three-cookies-in-one treat.
Gluten Intolerant? No Problem.
The gluten-free chocolate chip is the only cookie the shop doesn't make fresh on the premises. But if you have a gluten allergy, they're a worthy substitute for the original, and just 75 cents apiece.
M&M on the bottom, red velvet on the top, cookies and cream ice cream in the middle. Yum.
Fresh baked brownies await their ice cream orders.
