Shark Week Waffles

Apparently this is the week of waffles around here:) On Monday I shared our fun Back to School Apple Waffles and today it's fun shark waffles in honor of Shark Week! My boys have been SUPER excited about watching all the educational {and scary} shark shows on the Discovery Channel this week, and I thought it would be fun to make some waffles to celebrate:) The great thing about these Shark Week Waffles is that you don't even need a waffle iron to make them....you can make them with plain old frozen waffles!
 Start with one waffle per person plus an extra waffle {you'll need 1/4 for each person} to make the shark fins. I made some crispy Belgium waffles, but again the frozen kind would work just fine here too!
 Cut your extra waffle into quarters. Your waffles need to cool off a little before you assemble them, so set them to the side to cool while you work on the next step.
 Take a container of Cool Whip {I used about 8 oz. and it was plenty for four waffles} and add in some blue food coloring. Give your Cool Whip a good stir until you get it to a blue color that resembles water.



Slather a couple tablespoons of the blue Cool Whip onto your cooled waffles.
 Trim down a little bit of the quarter waffles that you cut earlier so that it will sit on you waffles without falling over, then place it in the center of of all the blue Cool Whip water.
 These were SUPER simple to make and so much fun for the boys to eat...they didn't even need syrup with all the "water" on top of their waffles:)
 {WARNING: Your kiddos will end up with a lovely blue smile for a while after eating these...but that just makes them more fun!}
Have you and your kiddos been watching Shark Week?

What fun!

We haven't been watching Shark Week at all...it's been a busy week. Maybe we can watch at least some of it before it's gone.

Hello Kelli!
You are super creative with a waffle! I loved your apple waffles, too.

I'm going to call you waffle mama! You are so darn creative. My kids would love these!

Our boys sound like they would get along since mine are also Shark Week enthusiasts! From the second I step out the door to the moment I arrive back home from my office at Dish, those two are glued to the TV. I was perusing our DVR yesterday and there were tons of scheduled recordings and, I swear, each show had the word “shark” in it. LOL! At least we have the Hopper DVR, with tons of recording space to accommodate it all. They are going to go nuts over these waffles! I’ll let you know how they turn out!

I love Eli's smile. You are going to have to teach your daughter-in-laws all your waffle recipes. Your sons are going to expect it of them too. :)

We loved shark week! It was a great change from seeing the Olympics for weeks at a time, but I do miss the Olympics.

Mmmmm! I love cool whip and the kids will love the blue 'water' on their waffle! We're gonna have to make these!

I found smore frozen waffles today at Target. I bet you can come up with a better version of those. The frozen are just so well, frozen. heehee!
