Last weekend I made Hello Kitty waffles– because waffles taste better when they are shaped like Hello Kitty! =)

I've loved Hello Kitty for as long as I can remember.  Ever since getting my first set of Hello Kitty trinkets: a hairbrush, coin purse, and mini notebooks.  I don't remember who gave me the gift, but I still have them to this day.  My obsession with Hello Kitty was recently renewed when I attended the 35th Anniversary of Hello Kitty exhibit at Three Apples.

After discovering that there is a Hello Kitty waffle maker that makes perfectly shaped Hello Kitty waffles, I had to get one!  The waffle maker makes four small waffles at a time: two Hello Kitty ones, and her friend My Melody and Tenorikuma (I think that's the bear character). I purchased my waffle maker from ebay. This is what the waffle iron looks like:

On one side is the face, and the other side is the traditional gridmarks of waffles. I originally wanted to make an original waffle batter to test out my machine, but didn't have enough time to whip any up.  So I used a Belgium waffle mix.

The waffle iron works great.  Each set of waffles came out perfectly (except for the first batch, shown above, when I was still trying to figure out the waffle maker).  The only thing was that they were hard to remove, so the faces sometimes got squished when I was prying them off the waffle maker.  I sprayed the grids with oil, but they were still hard to get off.

Now there are so many possibilities.  Perhaps I'll make some Hello Kitty moffles next?

    These are just too darn cute. Anybody — no matter what their age — would love to wake up to waffles like these. ;)

    I *heart* Hello Kitty! I just might need to ask for that waffle maker for my birthday. Just came across your blog doing searches on Google for some good french pastries in San Diego, particularly eclairs. I’m looking for a place to do a pastry/dessert platter for a family gathering next week. We live in Clairemont but can pick up between Kearny Mesa and Ocean Beach. If you know of some good options, would love to hear from you. Going to sub to your blog, too cute and love all the pictures!

    Hi Iris- I’m happy you found my blog! My favorite place for french pastries and eclairs is Bread & Cie, which is near the Hillcrest area.
