The weather is warming up and that means long hours of outdoor play for the kids. Having snacks outside also comes with the fun. Served with a variety of toppings, this waffle bar is a great snack idea for everyone to enjoy.

Outdoor Waffle Bar - Great Snack Idea!

As the kids are outside having fun with friends and neighbors, I can always expect them to come running in for drinks and snacks. They quickly browse the pantry, grab something quick and run back outside. Why not change it up a little bit and make that outdoor playtime snack a fun one?

While picking up some things at Target, I spotted a large variety of Eggo Waffles. I had all 3 boys with me and they each grabbed a box out of excitement. Since the Eggo products were on sale for $1.99 each (until 5/13), I didn’t mind stocking up on them. That’s a great deal!

As I was putting the boxes in the freezer upon arriving home, I couldn’t help to think, ‘What am I going to do with all these waffles?’. That’s when it hit me; a waffle bar. However, not for the morning time. Waffles aren’t just for breakfast, so why not do a snack waffle bar? So that is just what we did.

Eggo Waffles

Waffle Variety - To have your own waffle bar, start with a good variety of waffles. Using Eggo Waffles, I can easily prepare a large amount in about 5 minutes in the oven. For our waffle bar, we used Eggo Blueberry Waffles, Eggo Chocolatey Chip Waffles, Eggo Homestyle Waffles, and Eggo Brown Sugar Cinnamon Roll Wafflers.

Can you see from the packaging that Eggo Waffles got a new look? I was excited to see they have a new formulation that is free from artificial. You heard that right, Eggo is now made with ‘No Artificial Flavors. Colors from Natural Sources.’ Look for the packaging with the green banner!

To make the bar easy to set up, I placed all the toppings in small bowls on a serving tray. When I am ready to serve it, I simply carry the tray outside with all the toppings ready.

The waffles can go on a serving tray or I like to use cake stands. This allows everyone to easily see what is available and easily make a selection.
