Gift Idea for Dessert Lovers: Chocolate Waffleshots

If you’re looking for a way to elevate your mini-dessert creativity, then you might want to take a look at ‘waffle shots’ – chocolate-dipped mini waffle cone cups that you fill with extra tastiness.  The first time I saw these lil’ temptations was on

They featured two different flavors: Bittersweet Chocolate and Cookies & Cream. After further investigation, the company has their own website, where you can purchase these flavors in addition to S’mores (which is coated with chocolate, graham cracker, and marshmallow).

The outer rim and insides of Waffleshots are dipped in Belgium chocolate (and sometimes extra accents).

One box of Waffleshots contains six 2-ounce servings for $22.50.

Of course you can fill the mini cups with ice cream (and create impressive mini-sundaes), but they are also perfect for liqueurs (think Kahlua or Bailey’s Irish Cream) and making indulgent espresso or macchiato shots. I know I’d probably top whatever I made with whipped cream.

I love giving shout outs to Made-in-the-USA products, and Waffleshots is one of them – the company is headquartered in California.

Aside from online ordering, you can get your hands on Waffleshots faster if you are a resident of California. They are sold at the following places: Neiman Marcus, Alfred Coffee (in multiple locations), TOMS store in Venice, and Bristol Farms. The Nespresso Boutique & Cafe in California (as well as in New York) also sells them.

Out of all the places I’ve seen selling Waffleshots, I have to say that Neiman Marcus takes it to another level by offering a greater range of colors and unique flavors within their inventory. Ideal for gift-giving, they sell Multicolored Waffleshots in a rainbow of hues; Holiday Waffleshots (peppermint bark, chocolate truffle and champagne); and Dessert Waffleshots (tiramisu, cheesecake and brownie). They retail for around $28 for a pack of six.

I’m thinking that the ‘Holiday’ collection would be my first choice, followed by the S’Mores flavor.

So, what do you think of Waffleshots?

How’d you use them – buy ’em or gift ’em?

    When I first saw a picture of these waffle shots, the first thing I thought is they would go great with Bailey’s or Kahulua. So I was happy to see you mention those brands. These waffle shots seem to really help you make the most out of dessert liquor. I’m not really a drinker, but I could for sure get excited by this.

  20. Oh my these look great. I love them. Perfect for so many desserts and treats. Perfect for even some holiday cocktails. YUM!! Perfect little gift to take to your next holiday gathering.
