Cupcake Waffles

I've had a cake mix in my pantry calling my name for weeks now! I had planned to make this fun creation weeks ago...you know when I was on my waffle kick...but I got distracted by kids, crafts, trips, and the 4th of July. The last few times I've opened my pantry all I could think about was that darn box of cake mix! So I finally got around to making my fun treat yesterday, and let me tell you it was totally worth the wait! So instead of keeping you in suspense any longer, I will tell you how you can make this yummy treat I call Cupcake Waffles:)
 Drool worthy right?!? The beauty is that they are really {no I mean REALLY} easy to make!
**************
Start with your favorite box of cake mix. I chose Funfetti cake mix simply because I thought the kiddos would like that best...what kid doesn't love sprinkles in their cake:) Make your cake mix according to the directions on the package.
 Warm up your waffle iron, spray it with non stick cooking spray, and them put your cake batter on the waffle iron. I used my trusty Pampered Chef scoop {the large size} that I normally use for cupcakes and I put three {plus just a little more} scoops.
 Cook your cupcake waffles on medium heat. You want them to cook through without getting too crispy on the outside. We are going for the texture of a cupcake but in the shape of a waffle:)
 Remove the waffle from your waffle iron and separate it into sections. Let it cool slightly.
 Put two sections of waffle on a plate and put a {smallish} scoop of ice cream on one of the sections...
 ...sandwich the two waffle pieces together...
 ...then top your cupcake waffle creation off with the icing of your choice. Again I chose Funfetti icing just because sprinkles makes everything more fun:)
And that is how you can have yummy {ice cream filled} cupcake waffles without ever turning on your oven!
Pin It!

Yum! I was thinking that your future daughters-in-law are going to really dislike you, unless they happen to be as crafty as you. You set the bar high!

These look like fun. I bet you could freeze the "extra" waffles and then pull them out and heat when you want a single serving treat.

Jocelyn said...

You continue to prove that you can make anything in a waffle iron!! And who doesn't LOVE funfetti cake/frosting! Didn't realize that you used ice cream in the middle until you said it at the end. Yum!!
