Before putting together the autumn waffles, prep all the fruit by slicing and creating the design on a plate or a chopping block for easy assembly. This also helps guide the placing of the fruit to form the autumn waffle design.

Grapes, peach, blueberries, and bananas

The prepping tools you will need for the fall-themed waffles are a chopping block, cookie cutters, one for leaves, one for flower shapes, one small round, and a paring knife with a flexible blade.

The base for the fall-themed design is crispy freezer waffles. You can choose the one that best fits your family’s palate. We chose an apple cinnamon flavor. Toast the waffles before using.

For the fall-themed waffle with the peach owl, we are using fresh peaches to create the body and the feathers. Two rounds of banana and two blueberries for the eyes. And a red grape to form the owl’s beak and the top feather in the head.

The fall-themed waffle with the fallen apple has one petite apple, one cherry, red and green apples, and blueberries.

For the Fallen Apple Waffle

  • The fallen apple waffle uses a tiny apple with a transversal cut on the bottom, simulating a whole apple inside the waffle.
  • Cut a small round insition to the apple and place small round red grapes to form a worm.
  • The body of the worm also has small slices of green grape and slices of blueberry to create the eyes.
