February is here and I’ve wasted no time getting started on fun festive treats for my little ones to enjoy!
Now that my boys are a bit older, they love to help out in the kitchen. While this definitely can get a little messy, it’s the memories that matter, right?
Initially, I planned to make some easy cake mix cookies like these, but instead, I decided to make some yummy strawberry waffles with white chocolate chips! It’s super simple, delicious, and toddler-approved!
So without further ado, I’m excited to share this recipe with you guys!
Here’s what you need to make these Valentine’s Day Waffles:
- Box of Strawberry Cake Mix
- White Chocolate Chips
- Vegetable Oil
Once you have all of your ingredients, the prep for these waffles is fairly simple. Simply combine the cake mix, eggs, vegetable oil, and water. I used a hand mixer for this.
Next, add in your white chocolate chips and ‘fold’ them into the batter. Once your batter is ready, set aside and prep your waffle maker. We have this waffle maker from Kohls and I LOVE it. Not only does it make four waffles at once, but the spillover is turned into little pancake sticks.
Once your waffle maker is ready to go, prep the surface with nonstick spray and pour in your waffle mixture. I learned the hard way to use less batter than I would use with traditional waffle batter. Be sure to peek at your waffles to ensure they don’t burn. Once done, remove them from the waffle maker with a spatula and allow them to cool.
Next, sprinkle a few more chocolate chips on top of the waffles and add your favorite syrup (we used maple for these), and enjoy!
These are sure to be a hit with your little ones and would also be a beautiful addition to a breakfast board for Valentine’s Day! You can make this recipe your own by switching to using a different Cake mix or even adding festive Valentine’s sprinkles on top.
