You know what’s also exciting? Cake mix waffles. It totally validates easting cake for breakfast and no one will ever know. After stuffing my face with two days of donuts, I thought you might be in need of a lighter dessert/breakfast for the weekend. These Strawberry Red Velvet Waffle parfaits are the perfect dessert for without over indulging.

The waffles are made with a red velvet cake mix. A full batch makes about 5 large waffles, but each of these parfait cups only takes a half of a waffle. I happened to make these the same weekend that I made my S’mores Red Velvet Waffles. There  was a lot of waffling around that weekend.

Wow, bad joke. These waffles are layered with strawberries and homemade whipped cream. And because no dessert is complete without chocolate, I sprinkled some white chocolate chips on top.  Of coarse, the best part of parfaits is that you can add any of your favorite ingredients.
