Tips on how to make Oreo Waffles
Avoid overmixing Oreo waffle batter.
Firstly, to avoid having a rubber-textured Oreo waffle, try not to overmix the batter. Overmixing the batter develops more gluten which makes it hard and gummy. Moreover, it will make your waffles flat. Additionally, make sure that you mix all the ingredients in room temperature.
Grease the waffle maker with some butter.
Secondly, don’t forget the butter or oil. This tip is true in baking and cooking. If you want to avoid the batter sticking to your waffle maker, you must spray it with butter or grease it with oil. Scraping the batter stuck to your waffle maker isn’t an enjoyable activity, believe me. After all, you want perfectly shaped Oreo waffles. Try not to forget this one because it’s important!
Make sure to crush your cookies finely.
Thirdly, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have a food processor to crush your Oreos. Instead, you can place it in a bag and crush it with a hammer or a rolling pin. Alternatively, if you feel like you don’t have the strength to do it, you can always use a blender. That being said, if you want big chunks of Oreo cookies in your waffle, you may want to stick to crushing it in the bag for just a little bit. Even though it’ll take more time, it will be worth it.
Drizzle it with caramel, strawberry sauce, or even chocolate sauce.
Fourthly, if the sweetness and the flavor is not enough for you, you can always drizzle it with strawberry, caramel, or chocolate sauce. You can also go with the classic maple syrup. Top it whipped cream or vanilla ice cream to boot. Voila, you’ll have a perfect cookies and cream dessert. Furthermore, because it can be eaten before or after breakfast, the possibilities are endless!
Pair it with a glass of milk.
Lastly, to give it the classic Oreo experience, you can pair your waffle with a glass of milk. It is up to you if you want to dunk the waffles or just eat it alongside the glass of milk.
