Waffle Pops (Waffles on a Stick)
Waffles pops are at that delicious intersection of breakfast and dessert. Like donuts or gooey pastries, they are perfect for extra special breakfasts (think birthdays or celebrating the first day of summer break) but they can also be served as a dessert.
They are a crowd-pleaser at parties, both with kids and adults. Next time you’re hosting a birthday shindig, skip the cake and hand out waffle pops to everyone’s delight!
How To Make Waffle Pops
Waffle pops are a cinch to make! Use your favorite waffle recipe or even a box mix. Once your waffles are out of the waffle iron, break them apart and put an ice-pop stick in each one. The stick will slide right it with little effort — just be sure to get smaller sticks if you are using a mini-waffle iron.
Next, drizzle or dip your waffle pops in melted chocolate. While the chocolate is still warm, add pieces of sweet fruit and crushed nuts.
Let the chocolate set. This will keep the fruit and nuts in place so they don’t slide off the waffle when picked up by the stick. Once the chocolate is set, all that’s left to do is enjoy them!

In addition to classic waffles dipped in chocolate, try chocolate waffles drizzled with melted peanut butter or banana waffles and whipped cream. Decorate with fruit and nuts just as you would the classic waffle dipped in chocolate.
