Rainbow & Tied Dyed Waffles

Colleen Sowa


These waffles are so much fun for the entire family or for a brunch or pot luck!

They can be made ahead and frozen too! Just thaw them and heat on baking sheets in the oven or take a few out at a time and pop in the toaster!

The children love these... and they can be used as a meal or a dessert.

9Spoon in enough batter to cover the waffle area of the waffle iron.

Each waffle iron varies on temperature and cooking time.. (The heart shape iron I used cooked them fast... only 1-2 minutes).

When waffles are done, remove them from the iron.

10Repeat this process until all of your solid waffles are done.

11Use the remaining batter to make the tie dyed waffles. Put a little of each color of batter into the waffle iron and cook as you did the solid color ones. (Work Fast! As they cook fast and you are using all the colors of batter, which takes extra time).
