Fun waffle topping ideas

Adding fun and tasty toppings to waffles is a great way to get kids excited about their meals and also introduce them to a variety of foods. Here are some creative and delicious waffle toppings that your kids might enjoy:

  1. Fruit Shapes: Use small cookie cutters to cut fruits like melons, kiwi, or pineapple into fun shapes.

  2. Yogurt and Granola: A dollop of yogurt and a sprinkle of granola can add a nice texture contrast and make the waffles feel like a parfait.

  3. Mini Chocolate Chips: A few mini chocolate chips can be a sweet treat on top of waffles. Pair with some sliced bananas for a balanced topping.

  4. Nutella and Strawberries: Spread a little Nutella on the waffle and top with strawberry slices. It’s a kid-friendly version of chocolate-covered strawberries!

  5. Peanut Butter and Jelly: Give a classic sandwich a new twist by spreading peanut butter on a waffle and drizzling with a little jelly or jam.

  6. Whipped Cream and Sprinkles: Make the waffles feel like dessert with a dollop of whipped cream and some colorful sprinkles on top.

  7. Honey and Nuts: Drizzle some honey and sprinkle chopped nuts on top for a sweet and crunchy topping. (Be mindful of any potential nut allergies.)

  8. Cream Cheese and Fresh Berries: Spread some cream cheese on the waffle and top with fresh berries for a sweet and tangy combo.

  9. Fun with Syrups: Beyond the traditional maple syrup, consider different flavors like blueberry syrup, strawberry syrup, or even caramel sauce for a fun twist.

  10. Savory Spin: If your kids like savory foods, consider adding some scrambled eggs and a sprinkle of cheese on top of the waffle.

Remember to encourage your kids to try out different toppings and discover their favorite combinations. This can be a fun and interactive way to get them involved in their meals.

Fruit Waffle Flowers – Ingredients:

  1. Waffles (You can use your favorite recipe or store-bought version)
  2. Strawberries
  3. Oranges
  4. Kiwi fruits

Instructions:

Step 1: Prepare Your Waffles

Start off by making or heating your waffles. We used ready-made frozen waffles to make this cute breakfast easy peasy. 

Step 2: Cut Your Fruit

While your waffles are cooking or heating up, begin preparing your fruit. Cut the strawberries into slices – these will serve as the beautiful ‘petals’ of your flowers. Next, peel and slice your oranges and kiwi fruits into small pieces. We used the kiwi as leaves and orange as the “sun” and more petals. 

Step 3: Assemble Your Fruit Waffle Flowers

Now comes the fun part! Start with a round waffle as the flower base. Arrange the strawberry and orange slices around the edge of the waffle to form the petals of the flower. Then add kiwi slices as leaves. 

Cut waffles into strips for the stem and smaller strips if you want to create a sun with an orange slice!

Step 4: Serve and Enjoy!

Place your Fruit Waffle Flowers on a plate and surround them with the remaining orange and kiwi pieces if you’d like to create a garden-like effect. And voila! You have a garden of edible flowers ready to be devoured by your little ones.
