Last year, I submitted this fun, easy, and yummy recipe called "Puppy Eggo" in Kellogg's "The Great Eggo Waffle Off!" contest. The inspiration came from my boys and their love for chocolate chip waffles. It became an instant hit at our house! 

I remembered the first time I made this special treat for them... They laughed and said, "It's a puppy!" That's how the name came about. Of course, they stared at the puppy waffle for a few seconds and went straight for the chocolate candies. The taste is amazing! The sweet creamy whipped cream blends delightfully with the chocolate syrup and the chocolate chip waffle with Nutella. Plus, a yummy salty bacon is added to balance the sweet. Of course, to make it a more complete and "healthy" meal, bananas and strawberry were included. 

I hope this special breakfast treat becomes your kids' favorite puppy too! Have fun! :)
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 Eggo Chocolate Chip Waffle
  • Hazelnut/chocolate spread
  • 1 tbs whipped cream
  • Chocolate syrup
  • 2 slices of banana
  • 1/2 slice of a small strawberry
  • 2 chocolate candies
  • 2 slices of bacon
DIRECTIONS
  1. Toast the Eggo Chocolate Chip Waffle.
  2. Spread the Hazelnut chocolate on the waffle.
  3. Spread the whipped cream on the waffle in the shape of a small circle.
  4. Eyes/Pupils: place 2 slices of banana about one square apart and put one chocolate candy on top of each banana slice.
  5. Mouth/Nose: carefully pour the chocolate syrup on top of the whipped cream to resemble a dog’s mouth/nose.
  6. Cut the 1 strawberry in the shape of a tongue and put it on top of the whipped cream (under the nose).
  7. Ears: cook 2 slices of bacon (or turkey bacon) in the microwave for about 1-1/2 minutes. Place 2 slices of cooked bacon on the left and right sides of the waffle.
  8. Enjoy!

  1. In my opinion, it's very important to make kids enjoy food and understand the process of cooking, as well as the importance of eating healthy. By giving them small treats to which they can connect to, they become more involved in the making of every meal and enjoy it a lot more.
