This brownie waffles post is courtesy of our contributor Michelle...I have been on a mission to find new desserts to make with my waffle iron lately. I recently made a waffle iron birthday cake which was a big hit with the kiddos. Last week, my son and I decided to try using brownie mix instead of cake mix to make a quick dessert. They turned out great, they were the perfect texture and easy to make with the kids. Whenever I make traditional brownies, the family always races to get the corner pieces. With the waffle iron, each piece was like a corner piece!
What you will need:
- 1 box brownie mix of your choice (plus ingredients as directed on the box)
- Waffle Iron
- Non-stick Cooking Spray
- Whipped Cream
- Sprinkles or fresh fruit
Step 1: In a medium sized bowl, prepare the brownie mix as directed on the box (omitting water, additional liquid is not needed), mix with a spoon and turn on your waffle iron.
Hint: I substitute applesauce for the oil called out in cake and brownie mixes. If you like the taste of coconut, coconut oil is a great alternative as well.
Step 2: Spray the top and bottom waffle iron plates with non-stick cooking spray. Spoon the brownie batter in each section of the waffle iron. The amount of batter will depend on the size and shape of your waffle iron. It may take some trial and error to determine the right amount of batter.
Step 3: Cook until steaming stops and then carefully remove the cake waffle with tongs. Be careful, they will be very hot! Place on a rack to cool.
Step 4: Once cooled, scoop whipped cream on top of the brownie waffle and add sprinkles or fresh fruit.
Step 5: ENJOY!
Other fun ideas:
- Serve vanilla ice cream between two brownie waffles to make ice cream sandwiches.
- Make a brownie sundae! Top a scoop of your favorite ice cream with pieces of waffle brownie and chocolate sauce. Add a bit of whipped cream and top with a cherry!
- Top brownies waffles with fresh bananas and caramel sauce for a weekend brunch!
- Add chocolate or butterscotch chips to the batter before cooking for gooey brownie waffles. YUM!

This looks like so much fun. I almost want to go buy a waffle iron just to try it out!
Yum! We are always looking for new yummy treats. Thanks for sharing!
they looks so yummy and crispy! What a great idea….. I could eat these for breakfast, lunch, and diner….. AND dessert, of course!! 🙂
What a great idea. I’ve not used a waffle iron for years. So is it okay to heat it and THEN spray it with non-stick spray? Or should I spray before heating? Do I need to respray before making each waffle? Thanks for the help!
Hi Miranda! I usually spray it right before use (after it’s heated) and then once again between making each waffle.
I have had a problem with the brownie mix sticking to the iron. Does it make a difference which mix you use, or the amount of oil you spray the iron with? I see these pictures that make it look so easy, but I have not had much luck making them 🙁
Hi! It shouldn’t matter which brand. Make sure you are not adding any water to the mix and be generous with the non stick cooking spray. Spray both the top and bottom each time. Good luck!
