These pretty waffle wedges would certainly make breakfast better, but I like the idea of adding them to ice cream. Chocolate waffles dipped and drizzled in melted chocolate and covered in pastel sprinkles. Perfect.
I broke out the top loading vertical waffle maker that I received for Christmas last year. Still love it …
… and how it perfectly fills up the waffle shape with batter.
You can get 6 waffles or 24 wedges from the recipe below. That’s a lot of ice cream sundaes, so feel free to freeze some or just enjoy them as straight up warm chocolate waffles.
To decorate wedges, melt chocolate candy coating in a small bowl and dip the round waffle edges in.
I used these gloriously beautiful sprinkles from my friend Sweetapolita to dress them up. If you haven’t stumbled on her sprinkle shop yet, hop on over to see all the amazing color combinations she has. It’s a very happy place.
Before the chocolate melts, cover the edges with sprinkles. Sprinkle them over a large bowl so you can reuse any leftover. Lay waffle wedge on a wax paper covered surface and drizzle with more chocolate. Let dry and they’re ready for their close up.
Pretty in pink and purple.
And prettier as a backdrop for an ice cream sundae. All the yeses!!!
Waffle Wedge Sundaes
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup mini semi sweet chocolate morsels
- Whisk dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
- In another large bowl, whisk the liquid ingredients together until combined. Add to the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth.
- Fold in mini morsels.
- Preheat waffle maker to desired setting and when ready, pour a scant cup of batter into the spout (if using a model like mine) or on the waffle maker grid and bake until tone sounds and the waffle is done.Remove waffle and repeat with remaining batter.
- Do decorate: Cut each waffle into four wedges. Dip the round edge into melted candy coating and top with your favorite sprinkles. Place on a wax paper covered surface and drizzle with more melted chocolate candy coating. Let sit until dry. Serve as is or use them to accessorize ice cream sundaes.

Wow, this is the most amazing waffle I have ever seen. I love the colours! Will have to give this a try one of these days. Love the idea of dipping just the edges in chocolate and using your favourite sprinkles to pretty them up. I don’t know if I can eat something so lovely. I might just have the urge to display it, but then cry when it starts melting :D
Wow, that’s delicious. Your blog is wonderful, I love your recipes. Gratitude for the beautiful work.
They look delicious!
That photo with the ice cream is making me drool!!! *runs to the store to buy a waffle maker and gallons of ice cream*
Wow those look amazing!!!!!
Damn those look too good to be eaten for breakfast, rushed in the morning. Those need to be a brunch or dessert item during a leisurely weekend.
Love these! I made waffles this weekend and I totally failed by not covering them with chocolate and sprinkles (though I DID glaze them like a donut, so there’s that). Next weekend: glaze AND sprinkles. :)
Oh so yummy!
This is like a whole new world. They look great and when I scrolled down to the ice cream photo I fell in love with the idea and the photo. You make the sweet life so much better.
Fantastic sundae idea…made so cute. Love the purple. Tell your mom belated Happy Mother’s Day!
I didn’t know waffles could be so cute. Those sprinkles though!
