Grab your best ghouls and throw together these mini Halloween Spider Web Waffles complete with mini donut spiders for a fun Halloween weekend kick-off brunch.
Before the hustle and bustle of Halloween night, I thought it would be fun to gather the ladies for a fun morning of mimosas and Halloween inspired bites. These Spider Web Waffles are so darn cute, though, that they are also the perfect breakfast addition for your little ghosts and goblins!
I picked up the mini waffle maker at Target (this is not a sponsored post) while there shopping for something completely unrelated; the best and worst part of shopping at Target. I knew the waffles would be so fun for a Halloween inspired waffle tray similar to what I did with this Breakfast Board.
That little waffle maker did not disappoint. I’m going to have those suckers on repeat from now until the 31st!
And while you certainly don’t need a waffle recipe, I’m going to include it because it’s a scaled down version since the waffle maker is mini and you likely don’t want to be stuck making waffles allllll day long.
- 1 cup buttermilk pancake and waffle mix
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- Preheat waffle iron according to manufactuer's instructions.
- In a large bowl, whisk together ingredients until just combined.
- Follow manufacturer's instructions for the mini spider web maker for desired crispiness and amount of batter to use.
- Serve warm with a dusting of powdered sugar, melted butter, and maple syrup, as desired.
This recipe was used with the Dash Spider Web Waffle mini waffle maker which uses only 3 tablespoons of batter per waffle.
If using a different waffle maker, you'll likely only get 2 waffles with this recipe.
I used my skeleton, Esmeralda as our brunch hostess and then things just took a turn from there with its custom capes in lieu of place cards. I mean, who doesn’t want their own cape to head home with?
Side note: Those Esmerelda look-alike plates came from WalMart for .98, y’all. I added the flower at the top to keep things girlie.
I also made some Deviled Egg Pumpkins and an Egg Freak-tata that didn’t make it into photos but will be posted separately. The deviled eggs are way too simple to be considered a recipe- you simply sprinkle with Cajun Seasoning (because it’s a bit orange) and use some chopped chives for the pumpkin stem. Voila. Remove the spider, and of course the creepy hand, and these will work for a Thanksgiving appetizer, too.
But the real star of the Halloween Brunch show will be the Spider Web Waffle.
To make the “spiders”- simply melt chocolate chips and pipe some spider legs onto mini donuts. Plop a Whopper candy into the center, adhere some small eyeballs with your melted chocolate and now you have a spider to go WITH your spider web. I mean, how seriously cute.
So cute, don’t be surpsied if your skeleton returns from the dead in order to grab a bite.
Here’s some previous year Halloween fun if waffles aren’t your thing:
