Christmas Tree Waffles

Christmas morning is the most anticipated day of the year. In our house, we have a tradition of making breakfast (and coffee) before we open presents. One thing we started making last year was Christmas Tree Waffles.  So today we are partnering with Horizon Organic to share this recipe with you. Once your kids see these on Christmas morning, it will become  their new favorite way to enjoy waffles.

Supplies Needed to Make  Christmas Tree Waffles:

  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon of Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder

  • 1 1/2 Cups of Horizon Organic 2% Reduced Fat Milk

  4. Put 15-20 drops of green food coloring into the mixture and stir until well tree waffles step2
  5. Plug-in your waffle maker and allow it to warm up. If it has a setting to change the heat, I suggest using a light setting so you don’t get browning on the top of the waffle.
  6. Spray the waffle maker with non-sticking cooking spray.
  7. Carefully pour the mixture into the waffle maker and close. Allow it to cook for 1-2 minutes checking it to ensure it isn’t burning or turning brown.
  8. Remove waffle from the waffle maker using a fork and place onto plate.
  9. Break up the waffle pieces and arrange in a Christmas tree-like tree waffles step3
  10. Place chocolate candies into the holes of the waffle. These will resemble the tree waffles step4
  11. Cut the banana into rounds then carefully cut off triangle pieces to make the shape of star.
  12. Serve with warm syrup and enjoy!
