Strawberry Nutella Waffles

Strawberry Nutella Waffles

My friend Dawn celebrated her birthday last week so I’m dedicating these waffles to her.

Strawberry Nutella Waffles-1

We used to be neighbors years and years ago. I think there was a maintenance problem with the water in the building so she came over to check on us and see if we knew what was going on. After that we started to hang out, watch The Hills together,and go shopping at Old Navy. Perfect. We’d often get fried ravioli from Vinny T’s or crepes from Paris Creperie. The must get crepe was a Strawberry and Nuetella crepe.

Sadly, my shopping buddy moved back to her hometown of Philly a few years ago. I miss our crepes and Old Navy trips!

Inspired by those classic sweet crepes I made these Strawberry Nutella Waffles. They will make an amazing breakfast, brunch, or even dessert. Or for dinner for #BreakfastNight. I won’t judge. Besides, I’m determined to make dessert waffles a thing. I did make the Brownie Waffle Sundae just 2 weeks ago.

To up the strawberry ‘game’ I used 2 kinds of strawberries in the waffles. I used freeze dried and fresh strawberries. I made the freeze dried strawberries into a powder so there would be a hint of strawberry in every bite. Plus, it made the waffles the loveliest lightest shade of pink. Then I added diced fresh strawberries to give it more pop.

I think these waffles are perfect substitution for when you can’t get a crepe.

    I’m definitely doing this as soon as all our stuff gets delivered. I spent $500 at Target the other night and we still have no food. I ate half a bag of Sunchips and a Nutrigrain bar for lunch. Ugggghhhhh. I need that ranch dressing recipe.
