Product Review: Sweet Treats Waffle Stick Maker

You’ll all no doubt recall my enthusiasm for the Sweet Treats Cake Pop Maker which I reviewed recently. You can therefore probably imagine my excitement and being offered a Waffle Stick Maker from the same company. I was giddy!

The Waffle Stick Maker works in a similar fashion to the Cake Pop Maker. You heat it up whilst you mix your batter and then pour it inside. The maker is then closed and the waffles cook. This Waffle Stick Maker is very similar to a sandwich toaster really. After the cooking time – around 3 – 4 minutes – you are left with six golden sticks of waffle. Each “stick” is about an inch in width and I found it a great size to give to Little Man as a treat, though admittedly whilst we were making these he ended up eating about 5!

Now the batter makes around 36 and you can only make 6 at a time so prepare to be wiping out the hot plates after each batch and re-greasing them. If the idea of eating all 36 in one go is making you nervous do not fear – these waffles freeze VERY well. You can then reheat them as you want straight from the freezer in either the toaster or by popping them back into the Waffle Stick Maker for a few minutes. The top drawer of my freezer is in fact where you’ll find my stash of Apple & Cinnamon Waffle Sticks, ready to munch at a moments notice.

Whilst the “sticks” alone make a great snack or are ideal for breakfast, you can also jazz them up a little. The included recipes have details for making both the “sticks” and a dipping sauce, or you can turn them into “Waffle Sticks ON a Stick” by using cake pop sticks to poke in one end. By doing that you can then dip one end in chocolate, sprinkle on a few sugar strands or chopping nuts, and you’ve got instant party food. There is even a recipe included for savoury sticks and a cheese fondue sauce if your party isn’t full of small children!

You will find the Sweet Treats Waffle Stick Maker in your local Lakeland or online here.
