The creator of the cronut and the cookie shot

is at it again. Dominque Ansel's latest culinary mashup is the waffogato.

The sweet treat is a vanilla ice cream waffle topped with maple-syrup espresso. The dessert draws inspiration from the Italian affogato, which is a scoop of gelato or ice cream topped with hot espresso.

"As the ice cream melts, little tapioca pearls are revealed and float in the melted ice cream espresso sauce," Ansel wrote on Instagram.

The waffogato will be available at Ansel's New York City bakery starting May 9, and will cost about $7, The Wall Street Journal reports.
