Valentine's Day Waffle Bar

Valentine's Day Waffle Bar

With Valentine's Day being on a Sunday, we have the whole day to celebrate love. I'm sure our kiddos will be running around like normal and we will let them open their little Valentine's boxes and hang out as a family.

We will want something easy peasy but fun and different to celebrate, so this Valentine's waffle bar is the perfect solution. Waffles are so simple to make and you can put all the fixins in the center of the table and let everyone go to town. I mean, who doesn't love waffles smothered in whipped cream and fruit? I dare you to find me a person! 

I chose a variety of sweets and fruit to add to our waffle bar. Here's what I included in mine:

  • homemade whipped cream (recipe below!)
  • raspberries
  • strawberries (I cut these like a heart by cutting a "v" shape in the top)
  • blueberries
  • Valentine's M&Ms
  • chocolate chips
  • syrup

Some other things that would be fun are Valentine's sprinkles, bananas, or chocolate syrup. There are so many ways to spice it up and make it your own for your family, or heck, make it a breakfast in bed with your honey! Whatever way you do it, a waffle bar is the perfect way to celebrate love!
