One large egg up next then give a good mix so the dough kneads for a good 5 minutes.

How pretty is this dough?!

Waffle recipe

Press out your dough onto a lightly floured countertop. I used parchment paper for an easy clean up.

Cut your dough into 8 equal parts and press into rounds. Cook in your waffle iron for a super quick “roll.”

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 packet Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter cubed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tablespoon red food coloring

Cream Cheese Icing

  • 3 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter OR margarine softened
  • 2-1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat waffle iron to 350 degrees F. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, dry yeast and salt in a large mixer bowl and stir until blended.
  • Place milk, water and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH in 15 second increments until very warm but not hot to the touch (120° to 130°F. Butter won’t melt completely).
  • Add milk mixture to flour mixture, along with red food coloring and egg. Mix for 2 minutes at medium speed of stand mixer with dough hook attached, scraping bowl occasionally. Dough will form into a ball. Continue mixing for 5 minutes on medium speed.
  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured countertop and press out to 1/2 inch thick rectangle, about 9×13 inches. Cut into 8 equal parts and press each part into a round.
  • Place each dough round into waffle maker and cook for 1 minute, until cooked through. Remove and continue with remaining dough rounds. Place onto serving plate.
  • Combine all frosting ingredients (start with 1 tablespoon milk and add more if needed) in a large bowl and beat until creamy. Drizzle over waffle rolls to serve.

    So. Very. Bad. Followed the recipe exactly…they were terrible. What a horrible let down for my surprise valentine’s day breakfast. No amount of sweet drizzle could have saved them. Someone else said “play doh” and that’s the same image that came to my mind?

    I think I did something wrong, mine taste like Playdoo.

    I am use to make pizza crust and kneat with bare hand.

    I did not use a mixer, and I follow the recipe. But when I use yeast, I always let it puff like 1-2h depending off the recipe.

    This one don’t seem to need puffing time, but maybe it could help.

    1. Heather

      Yes! Mine too, but I followed the recipe to a T, used my new Kitchenaide mixer and everything. They were horrible ? no amount to drizzle could have saved them.

    The red velvet waffle rolls look so tasty! I must try this recipe on Sunday morning. I’m sure my kids will love it! I found this recipe on Pinterest. Thanks

  4. Monique @ Ambitious Kitchen

    Well, these look absolutely amazing! Perfect for Christmas or Valentine’s Day. 🙂

    Looks decadent! I would add some almond extract to the waffles, according to my Maw-Maw Hebert’s RVC recipe!

  6. Angela

    These look ah-mazing! I’m always scared of recipes with yeast, but they look simple and they are oh so pretty!!

  7. Megan {Country Cleaver}

    And in the morning, I’m asking Ben to make me waffles!! These are insane!! And that cream cheese sauce? Holy goodness!!

  8. Nutmeg Nanny

    Oh my goodness these little “waffle rolls” are so adorable. I bet they are super delicious with all that glaze on top….yum!
