It’s been a crazy winter. We’ve all been sick time after time, I’m just now getting over the last round myself because when one gets it, we all get it. It probably doesn’t help that with the cold temperatures we’ve all been huddled indoors in our own little cocoons, only peeking out for food and water. Since we’re all sick anyway, now is the perfect time for some one on one time with my daughter. And to make our time together even sweeter, an added bonus of soothing sore throats, we made Sprinkle Waffle Sundae Cups using Eggo waffles and Reddi Wip easily found at Walmart while we taking in episodes of the new season of Spirit Riding Free on Netflix.
Eggo Waffles are a staple around here at breakfast time. But for this occasion, we turned them into simple sundae cups, topped with ice cream, lots of sprinkles, strawberry or caramel topping, our Sprinkle Covered “unicorn” Pretzel Rods, and Reddi-Wip.
Eggo and Reddi-Wip make such a great pair when it comes to creating a special, “spirit” filled breakfast or snack-time! We picked up packs of both Eggo 10CT Buttermilk Waffle and Eggo 10CT Chocolate Chip Waffle along with Reddi-WIp Extra Creamy.
We love Eggo Waffles, because they’re warm, fluffy and delicious. They make breakfast, and snacktime, easier as they toast up to a delicious golden crisp in just a matter of minutes. They’re paired perfectly with Reddi-Wip. I appreciate knowing Reddi-Wip uses the best dairy cream in its original flavors and high-quality coconut cream in non-dairy varieties. There’s less hydrogenated oils than other frozen whipped toppings, because real cream is a top priority.
And so my daughter says, the more Reddi-Wip, the better!
Now you know just getting over a cold I’m not going to go too crazy with our snack choice. My daughter deserves a little treat, though. She’s going to start gymnastics again soon, and it’s important for her to know that she can push through anything, especially when there are others that depend on you. This is also why it’s so important that we have shows like Spirit Riding Free to watch together. It’s a fun series, but there are great, positive messages throughout of empowerment.
So to make our Sprinkle Waffle Sundae Cups before we settle in for our show, I first microwaved our waffles for about 45 seconds, just to get them pliable. Then, I pressed them into muffin tins and set them in a 425 degree oven for about 5 minutes or until golden and crisp. Take the waffles out of the oven and cool completely still in the tin.
While the waffles are cooling, melt half a pack of Almond Bark or white chocolate. I adore Almond Bark, though. I find it’s so much easier to work with. This is done in a large microwave safe mug in the microwave according to package directions.
We then broke large pretzel rods in half and dipped one end in the bark. Tap against the rim of the mug to get rid of the excess bark and promptly coat with sprinkles. Lots and lots of sprinkles. Luckily, my daughter was really happy to do this part. So I could take a rest. Cold and all.
Then, lay on a rack to set, which, takes only a matter of minutes.
Now it’s time to form the Sprinkle Waffle Sundae Cups! This entails layering a waffle cup, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, your choice of topping sauce, Reddi-Wip, and sprinkles. Then stick in a sprinkled pretzel wand. My original thought called for these sundaes to look like unicorns, but my daughter ended up making them how she wanted so I can’t help but think they’re better like this anyway.
All that’s left is to enjoy the time spent together! The older she gets, the harder it is to find time to take in occasions like this. She’s never too old to turn down an ice cream sundae, though!
