Candy Corn Waffles

After making fun kid friendly waffles this spring {rainbow waffles} and this summer {watermelon waffles}, I figured it was time to start working on some fun fall waffles! I had a couple of ideas in my head, but candy corn waffles won out as my first attempt...and I'm so glad they did! Aren't they adorable! My boys were so excited about them, except they were a little sad that they didn't actually have candy corn in them! I may have to work on that for next time:)
Start with your usual cast of {fun} waffle making characters: waffle mix and food coloring.
Mix up your batter according to the package directions and then divided the batter into three bowls. Leave one bowl uncolored and then add yellow coloring to one bowl and orange coloring to the other. I made a little more yellow batter since it is the largest area of the candy corn.
I closely inspected some real candy corn to make sure I added the colors in the right order:) Just in case you weren't sure it goes white, orange, yellow from top to bottom!
Spray your waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray....you don't want your candy corn creations to stick:) Start in the middle of your waffle iron with a small circle of the uncolored batter. Add a ring of orange batter and then a ring of yellow batter around the outside.
This is what a whole waffle will look like:
To finish up your Candy Corn Waffles, cut the whole waffle into fouths.
Next on my waffle to do list is going to be Jack-o-Lantern Waffles...and I'm thinking fall is the perfect time to try out some savory waffles too!

Very cute, especially for people who love the look of candy corn but might think they are too sugary. I love candy corn...almost bought some yesterday! :)

So cool Kelli! Candy Corn is my absolute favorite candy this time of year

Kmama said...

Too cute! I was watching Bobby Flay's brunch show on the cooking channel last night and he did a waffle, bacon, and cheddar cheese sandwich using the waffle as the "bread". Everyone is inundating me with waffle ideas and I STILL don't have a waffle iron! LOL

I'm a big waffle fan, so I need to try one of your cute ideas sometime. My son would be so impressed. :)

luvsclassics said...

I have a Belgian waffle maker, too. only mine is square. I'm not sure it would work. So what flavor would you have to put into the batter to make it taste like candy corn?

SpAzzGiRL said...

Genius Idea, WOW! This recipe would be great for our Halloween Food Blog Hop and we are giving away a prize! http://is.gd/X7I9XV
