Christmas Tree Waffles by McCormick

What you need

Serves: 4


Preheat the waffle iron. Spray with no stick cooking spray.

Mix all of the ingredients, except confectioners’ sugar and candy pieces, until blended.

Pour about 1/3 cup of the batter onto the center of the waffle iron (amount of batter needed varies per waffle iron size). Close lid and cook for about 5 minutes or until no more steam is seeping out. *The time depends on what the waffle temperature is set to.

Repeat with remaining batter.

Beak each waffle into 4 triangles and layer 3 triangles on a serving plate to resemble a Christmas tree. Sprinkle some confectioners’ sugar over the waffles. Use candy (M&M’s) to decorate the tree as ornaments.
