Because the desserts you can make with them are frankly amazing. They make the perfect base for a ton of delicious desserts and they're pliable when you use a super simple trick on them – did you know steam makes them super soft and malleable?!

1. Waffle Cannolis

You'll Need:

  • 2 waffle cones
  • ¼ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup of espresso
  • 14 oz whipped cream
  • 2 tbsp dark chocolate shavings
  • 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips, chocolate

Here's How:

1.1 Steam the waffle cones so they're pliable and then use a small glass to roll them into the shape of a cylinder.

1.2 Mix the sweetened condensed milk with a cup of espresso, fold in the whipped cream, and add the dark chocolate shavings. Mix until well incorporated and spoon the mixture into a piping bag.

1.3 Pipe the cream mixture into the waffle rolls.

1.4 Melt the chocolate chips, dip one side of the waffle rolls into the melted chocolate, and let it harden.

2. Waffle Bowls

You'll Need:

  • waffle cones
  • vanilla ice cream
  • fresh berries
  • mint leaves
  • caramel syrup

Here's How:

2.1 Soften the waffle cones by steaming them and then place them over the molds of a muffin pan.

2.2 Use a glass to gently press the waffles into the molds to create small bowls. Let the bowls set and then fill them with ice cream and fresh berries. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and caramel syrup for a true treat.

  • 7 oz white chocolate
  • ½ cup heavy cream

3.3 Add the chopped white chocolate to a bowl and pour the warm vanilla cream through a sieve into the bowl. Let the chocolate melt and then chill a little. Fold in the whipped cream and spoon everything into a piping bag.
