Happy Birthday Mr. Presidents

Brownie waffles topped with vanilla ice cream, sliced strawberries, and caramel syrup...
Happy Birthday Mr. Presidents!

These are SO INCREDIBLY EASY to make.

However,  I understand some one of you might be baking impaired (like me), so to make this as simple as it was to use your Easy Bake Oven  I'm giving you a paint  bake by numbers recipe.

#1. Get a box of this stuff (makes 9 individual waffle brownies).


#2. Follow the directions on the box to make brownie batter (goofy family members not a requirement for tasty results. "No Josie, egg whites hanging from your nose do not make this dessert more appetizing).


#3. Spray waffle iron with pam (you MUST spray iron each time you add batter), add brownie batter, wait 4-5 minutes, then remove waffle (seriously 4-5 minuets! No more waiting 40 minuets for the whole batch to be done. I love instant brownie gratification).


#4 Top with ice cream (if you're lactarded like me do not forget to take your lactose pills), sliced strawberries, caramel or chocolate drizzle, and ENJOY!


This lover of everything brownies was skeptical at first of whether or not I'd like the Brownie Waffle, but these did not disappoint,  I LOOOOOOOVVVEEDDDD it!  It was better than your standard brownie; moist and airy with just a bit of crunch on the edge.

I tried capturing a photo of Brownie Waffle consumption but I failed... they go FAST!






  Brownies in the waffle iron have left us wondering what else to make in the waffle iron...chocolate chip cookie waffles, pizza waffles, grilled cheese sandwich waffles, french toast waffles???
What do you think?
