Sprinkles For Breakfast Birthday Recipes Confetti Waffle Cookies

QUICK AND EASY CONFETTI COOKIES YOU CAN MAKE WITH A WAFFLE IRON.

Confetti Waffle Cookies | Sprinkles For Breakfast

I originally bought a waffle maker to make these Birthday Cake Waffles – which, in case you were wondering, I thoroughly enjoyed. But it turns out waffle makers are not JUST for waffles. They can also be used to make cookies! And the best part is, it bakes these cookies up in just 2 to 3 minutes! That’s the kind of immediate gratification I like to see.

These Confetti Waffle Cookies were actually the inspiration for my Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookies. But for some reason, I never posted the original Confetti version. So here we are.

So are these just mini waffles? No. A regular waffle recipe is meant to be light and airy. This recipe creates a denser final product that is more in line with a thick sugar cookie than a waffle. But the waffle maker acts as a super fast oven – baking your cookies in no time -and it gives these cookies those awesome waffle ridges that trap all that delicious icing.

HOW TO USE THE WAFFLE MAKER

My waffle maker is non-stick – so I don’t use any sort of cooking spray or butter before putting the dough on. I just turn it on high and let it heat up. Once it is ready to go, I use a cookie scoop to drop balls of dough onto the bottom iron. They don’t have to be a perfect ball and they don’t have to be perfectly centered. Once you close your iron, it will even out the dough for you. Then you just let them sit for 2 minutes. Open your waffle iron to see how they are doing. If they have started to turn golden brown, they are ready to go! If they are still pretty pale, close the iron and let them sit for another minute before checking again.

For these cookies, I suggest icing them while they are still a little warm. The glaze seems to be able to adhere to the cookies better this way. And then make sure you let the cookies dry on a cooling rack (with a piece of parchment underneath). This lets all the extra icing drip off. And then of course, sprinkle away!

  1. I am planning on making these for my cookie plates for Christmas. Do you dip the whole cookie or just the top? I have the small scoop so it makes a better size for the plates and I will have to go to goodwill to get the smaller depth (I already have the belgian).
    Thank you – cute idea

    1. I just dipped the top part in! But you can totally use a spoon and just spoon the icing over the top as well. Either works. Excited for you to try these!

It doesn’t matter if you are a baker, chef, content creator, or any other kind of artist.

If you are undercharging for your work, you are only hurting yourself.

Your time & money = wasted. And that sucks.

Becuase you are TALENTED. You should not just be....

-Bringing in a few bucks here and there.
-Breaking even.
-Or worse, losing money.

You deserve to be paid good $$ for your work!

But in order to actually grow your business, you have to have accurate prices.

And that’s exactly what The Ultimate Pricing Calculator helps you do. It is 100% customizable and tells you exactly what you should be charging for all your goods and services.

Time is one of our most valuable resources - especially if you run a business. Yet, so many people don’t charge for it when it comes to setting their prices.

I get it. Trying to figure out how much your time is worth is complicated.

There are a variety of factors that go into it - location, skill, demand, and more.

But we need to learn how to charge for it.

That’s why I dedicated an entire section to labor in The Ultimate Pricing Calculator. I make sure you add in your time so it is factored into the final price.

Then the calculator does all the magic math for you!

And becuase I know setting your hourly rate can be a little intimidating, I made a bonus video that helps you figure out exactly what it should be.

So tell me...how are you charging for your time right now? Do you think you should be charging more?

Requiring a deposit is a simple way to protect yourself from all the 👻 out there.

They have already agreed to pay you. So in order to start the work, you should ask for some of the money up front.

How much?

It depends on if your prices are set up correctly.

When you have accurate prices, anything from 25-50% should work just fine.

But if your prices are too low (which is the case for MOST new bakers and content creators I work with), you are still not getting enough to make this worth your time (in case they still do 👻).

If you want to see if you are undercharging, my Pricing Calculator can help you check. It’s 100% customizable and will tell you exactly what you need to be charging for each item you sell.

And if you are not sure how to do that, I highly recommend using The Pricing Calculator. It makes pricing easy.

It tells you exactly what you need to charge for all your goods and services.

No more uncertainty.

Things change. So should your prices! You should be reevaluating your prices 1-2 times a year just to make sure you are still on the right track. And if you have not raised your prices in a while...it’s time.

🤷‍♀️ But how much should you raise them?

Here are some options:
1. Pick a random number and just got with it.
2. Do a tiny bump up and hope that inflation is not killing your business.
3. Use my Pricing Calculator - it will tell you exactly how much you should be charing for all your goods and services (while making sure you are still making money).

If the Pricing Calculator sounds like something that would be helpful for you and your business, join the waitlist in my bio.

That way I can notify you as soon as it is released next week (and you can get access to a sweet discount)!

I can’t wait for you guys to use this magic calculator!

Pie Season is here! If you are looking to upgrade your pie game, the crust is a great way to start! You can find the recipe in my blog here: sprinklesforbreakfast.com/decorative-pie-crust-tutorial

Also, these photos are from one of my earliest blog posts (before my mom lost her battle to cancer). The photos definitely could use an upgrade, as I was just learning how to take food photos. But my mom is the hand model - and I just can’t bring myself to redo them.

It’s so crazy how a photo of some fingers pinching a pie crust can make me so happy and ugly cry at the same time.

Grief is such a strange thing. It comes in so many different shapes and sizes and colors. It shows up for big life events, and it shows up on a random Tuesday when you are diving home from the market and you go to call them and realize they are not there.

Or when you are sitting on your couch posting about pie on Instagram...although that one feels pretty specific.

I know there is no right or wrong way to deal with grief. And everyone has to find their own way to heal.

But I just wanted to say this:

To anyone who has ever experienced loss in any way - I am so so sorry. And while I know words can’t fix it, I just wanted you to know you are not alone❤️
