Christmas Tree waffles for a festive Christmas breakfast!
Only 36 sleeps are left until Christmas!! December is almost here! And today I’m very excited to share with you this very simple Christmas breakfast idea, that not only looks good, but also tastes amazing!
CHRISTMAS TREE WAFFLES
A couple of years ago we started making these Christmas tree waffles in our house, so the kids enjoy them in the morning before opening their presents. I usually put different treats in little bowls to decorate the waffles with, and let the kids decorate their own waffles with sprinkles, chocolate and fresh fruit. There are three options to make these waffles green, you can simply add green food colouring, you can add a bit of matcha or even kale powder!
Here, I decorated the waffle Christmas tree with a slice of star fruit, slices of a fresh strawberry, a piece of chocolate, and sprinkles! But there are so many options to choose from to decorate your Christmas tree waffles. You can add slices of a fresh banana, M&Ms, maple syrup, biscuits, funfetti, raspberries, or jam! Don’t be afraid to get creative!
I cut each waffle diagonally to create triangles, but if you have a round waffle maker you won’t need to cut anything. Just organise the waffles in the right order, decorate, and enjoy!
Tip: to get the required green colour, add a few drops of green food colouring, or substitute it with matcha like I did in green tea waffles, or as mentioned about maybe kale powder!
