Stuffed Croffles (Croissant Waffles)

    croffles (croissant waffles)

    Croissant waffles or croffles are the perfect cross between delicious puff pastry and a crispy, filling meal. When stuffed, the flavors are out of this world! 

    This relatively new invention is a delight to have any time of day because of its versatility. It can be savory or sweet depending on the toppings. To elevate the dish a little more, we’re going to stuff it with our favorite flavor combinations. 

    When making this recipe there are a few things I’ve learned which will help you make the best croffles possible.

    Roll your croffles in sugar. This will help make them extra crispy and absorb the butter that will come out in the cooking process.

    Another way to make the best croffles is to thaw your pastry dough. If you’re using frozen dough it’s best to wait until it’s completely thawed so that it will be easy to mold. When they’re rolled up, leaving them in the fridge while each individually grills in the waffle iron yields the best results. 

    What You Need to Make Stuffed Croffles

    The beauty of this recipe is that it really requires only one ingredient: pastry dough. Everything else is up to your imagination! For this recipe, I went with my favorite toppings and have two different yet equally delicious variations.

    If you don’t have a waffle iron, a grill pan will also work, just be sure to add pressure onto the croissant dough and flip halfway through. 

    How To Make Stuffed Croffles

    Roll out your croissant dough and fill it: I went with cream cheese and raspberry as well as peanut butter and banana.

    Roll dough into a croissant: Start at the larger end of the triangle and roll it toward the middle, making sure the tip is centered. This is also a good time to place the croissants in the fridge and take out each one at a time to grill.

    Toss each croissant in sugar: Take your individual croissant and toss it in sugar. Be sure to remove any excess sugar.

    Recipe FAQs

    What is the difference between a croffle and a waffle? 

    A croffle is made from pastry dough whereas a waffle is typically a batter or dough. The higher fat content in a croffle makes it crispier, fluffier, and heavier than a traditional waffle. 

    Who invented a croffle? 

    The credit for this invention largely goes to an Irish pastry chef named Louise Lennox who wanted to find a quick way to make a croissant in 2017.
