Waffles for Dessert

First off, thanks for all of the birthday wishes yesterday! Everyone was super sweet. Thank you!! I had a great day!! We are having my dessert party tonight. I will be sure to take pictures!

We usually make waffles on weekends or for dinner during the week, but this time we tried them for dessert!! Instead of using waffle cones, we made real waffles to hold our frozen yogurt!!

I used a basic waffle recipe and added in some orange zest…I thought it would be a nice touch and I am loving all things citrus right now! The waffles cooked up in no time, we love our waffle iron. The waffles are nice and thick!! We topped the waffles with vanilla frozen yogurt and a raspberry sauce.

Holy Yum!! The hot, crisp waffle was perfect with the chilly fro yo! The orange and raspberry flavors were great too!! Of course you can top them with anything you like…ice cream, hot fudge, caramel, candies, etc. Make the waffle sundae of your dreams!!

We had extra waffles, so we put them in the freezer. Just reheat them in the toaster and serve for breakfast, dinner, or DESSERT!!!

1 ¾ cup milk

  1. Waffles for dessert is quite the European thing…I like it! This is also “street food” (belgian waffles)…imagine being able to buy these at a stand? Diet 4ever!
