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.

    I’m always looking for new ways to make parfaits! My favorite one so far is one I always eat the day after Thanksgiving… a parfait made using my mom’s homemade Apple Pie and vanilla yogurt. Not the healthiest, but it sure is yummy! I can’t wait to try this parfait! Pinned 🙂
