Today we’re celebrating U.S. National Waffle Day with a new stuffed waffle recipe. After making Stuffed Taco Waffles, Pepperoni Pizza Stuffed Waffles, and Stuffed Nutella Waffles, we were inspired to create a new dessert waffle recipe using Carter’s favorite candy — Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups. The Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup Stuffed Waffles are by far the best dessert waffle recipe we’ve made to date.
Peanut butter and chocolate stuffed inside buttery, flaky crescent roll dough, and topped with ice cream — Mmmm Yum!
The first few times I made stuffed waffles, it took a long time. Transferring the dough from the parchment paper to the waffle iron takes some practice. But now that we’ve made stuffed waffles at least ten different times, the process is faster and easier and more fun!
We topped these sweet, stuffed waffles with vanilla ice cream, Reece’s Shell Topping, and chopped Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups.
National Waffle Day!
National Waffle Day, observed in the United States on August 24, celebrates the anniversary of the first U.S. patent for a waffle iron. In 1869, Cornelius Swarthout of Troy, New York received a patent for a device to bake waffles. This early version of a waffle iron was used over a coal stove. Made of a griddle and a cover, the device had to be flipped to cook both sides of the waffle.
