Every afternoon around 2:30, the front door opens and closes, three faces appear in my kitchen, backpacks fall to the floor and two words ring out: “I’m hungry!!!”. No matter how full their lunch boxes were that morning, my 3 kiddos bring them back empty and claim to be practically starving upon arriving home. Having something quick and easy, like these yummy waffle snack bites, helps fill the kids back up again so they’re ready for an afternoon of neighborhood play, extracurricular activities, and homework.
Some days, our schedule doesn’t allow for creativity with our after school snacking but many days it does. Putting a new spin on an old favorite, like Eggo Waffle Minis, brings out our imaginations and lets the children foster their kitchen skills. My son’s favorite food is pizza so anytime he can make something even remotely resembling pizza, he’s a happy guy and the original inventor of this snack.
I love that these Waffle Snack Bites are something the little ones can make independently and all of us enjoy. We’ve even made them for family movie night and would be a fun addition to a sleepover or party menu, too!
Waffle Snack Bites
Although this is technically more assembly than cooking, there are several great skills to practice with this snack prep. We start by washing a variety of fresh fruit and preparing it to top our Eggo Waffle Minis.
Strawberries, bananas, grapes, and apples are always on hand at our house but you can use your family’s favorites alongside raisins, nuts, or even dried fruit to add variety.
After the fruit is ready, it’s time to place our waffles in the toaster and round up the spreads. Cream cheese, peanut butter, and chocolate hazelnut all make our top list.
Gather all your food on a platter and the fun begins!
Look at all these delicious combinations; the chocolate spread topped with strawberries are my absolute favorites, my daughter loves the cream cheese with grapes and apples, and my son is all about the peanut butter banana version.
