I decided after spending the last several weekends at the mountain, I was ready for a weekend at home. When I go to Big Bear, it’s about a three hour drive, which means we get up before dawn on Saturday to head up there for the weekend. Whenever we stay home, it reminds me how much I love to sleep in. While sleeping in for me used to mean until 11 or 12, now it is usually 9am, followed by some lounging around before I actually decide to get up and make breakfast. Since we stayed home this weekend, I thought we needed to make a good breakfast. If you use a cake mix to make waffles, does that still qualify as breakfast?

While I am a pancake lover, my boyfriend is more of a waffle lover. I can’t say I ate these waffles for breakfast though. Let’s face it; these S’mores Red Velvet Waffle Stacks may be more of a dessert than a breakfast. These waffles are made with a cake mix and smothered in marshmallow fluff, chocolate fudge sauce and graham crackers. In all honesty, you might only need a half stack of these waffles because they are SO rich, but hey who am I to judge if you eat a full stack!

Instead of using just marshmallow fluff from the jar, I decided to create a marshmallow fluff frosting for these stacks. My second recommendation would be to use my favorite homemade marshmallow frosting from Lauren at Climbing Grier mountain. I used her frosting to make these Rice Krispie Treat S’mores, which are fabulous!

I also made some quick and easy chocolate shavings using Candiquik Candy coating. I melted some Candiquik in the microwaved and spread it on my non-stick baking sheet . I set it in the fridge to harden for a few minutes and then rolled the baking sheet to create the shavings. Nothing better than a quick and easy garnish.

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 5 Waffles


  • 1 Box Red velvet cake mix
  • Ingredients list on the box (eggs, oil, milk)
  • *substitute water for milk

For the Marshmallow fluff frosting

  • 1/2 C (1 sticker) Unsalted butter
  • 1 Jar (7oz) Marshmallow fluff
  • 1 C Powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp Heavy whipped cream


  • Hot fudge sauce
  • Graham crackers
  • Chocolate shavings (optional)


  1. Pre-heat waffle maker according to instructions.
  2. Mix red velvet cake mix according to box instructions. Substitute the water for milk.
  3. Coat waffle maker with cooking spray. Fill waffle maker with designated amount of batter and bake according to waffle cooking instructions. Allow to cool slightly.
  4. Prepare the marshmallow fluff by microwaving the butter for 10-15 seconds just until softened.
  5. Combine the softened butter and marshmallow fluff in a mixing bowl and beat on medium-high speed until completely smooth.
  6. Add powdered sugar and mix on medium speed. Fluff will become very thick. Add heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract and increase speed to medium-high. Whip for a couple minutes until smooth.
  7. If fluff is too thick, add additional heavy whipping cream 1 teaspoon at a time. If too thin, add additional powdered sugar.
  8. Assemble the stacks with a waffle at the bottom topped with a dollop of marshmallow fluff. Crush a quarter of a graham cracker and drizzle with hot fudge sauce. Repeat 3 times. Top with chocolate shavings if desired.

    These look amazing and I’m definitely making them this weekend for my fiance! One question though – am I supposed to use water, or supposed to use milk? I’m a bit confused what “substitute the water for milk” means! 🙂 Thank you!

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Yes, instead of using water, use milk, in the same amount that the box calls for. If you don’t have milk, it’s still ok to use water.
