We put together a little celebration for Charlie’s 2nd birthday this spring. A bee theme since we often call him “Charlie Bee”. Hobby Lobby had the cutest bee things which made it quite easy.
Nothing sounded easier than breakfast for dinner so with waffles as the main dish Jem and I took the idea a ran … a waffle bar with alllll the toppings!
We premade gobs of honeycomb waffles thanks to this darling Dash waffle maker and then we toasted them right before topping.
Some folks went classic – strawberries and whipped cream. The salted caramel was a hit and I always adore a good ol’ Elvis rendition – peanut butter, bananas, and bacon. The kids were all about the s’more trio – chocolate chips, marshmallows, and graham cracker crumble!
Whatever you choose to offer as part of your waffle bar, a mix of these toppings are sure to be a win!
- Maple syrup
- Sliced bananas
- Sliced peaches or nectarines
- Peanut butter
- Mini chocolate chips
- White chocolate chips
- Cinnamon chips – these are delish!
- Whipped cream
- Chopped pecans
- Mini marshmallows
- Homemade salted caramel
- Crushed graham crackers
- Blintz filling
- Vanilla waffle sauce
- Bacon crumble
- Sauteed apples
- Shredded coconut
- Jam, jelly, or marmalade – apricot is amazing
And, of course, you can’t forget butter!
Alongside our waffle fun we served almond poppyseed muffins, bacon, sausage, and three cheese quiche from the Magnolia Table cookbook. Needless to say, we were quite full!
From someone who doesn’t love spending time in the kitchen, trust, a waffle bar is the way to go for parties and holidays. Consider putting one together for your next birthday celebration, Mother’s Day, Easter … it could even be a fun Christmas Eve or New Year’s tradition!
