Croffles recently became popular in South Korea and have gone viral on social media. I was excited to see this trend because I’ve been making stuffed croffles since 2015! Perhaps, ahead of the curve but if you’d like to jump on this trendy take on waffles, these Apple Butter and Bacon Stuffed Waffles are crazy good. For a savory croffle, try these Sausage and Cheese Stuffed Waffles.

Recipe Notes for Easy Croffles

  • Storage: Store leftover croffles wrapped in plastic wrap or an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 days.
  • Reheat: Reheat in a toaster oven on a piece of parchment paper or aluminum foil for 3-4 minutes.
  • Cleaning the Waffle Maker: The butter, cinnamon and sugar will make a mess in your waffle iron. I found that letting the waffle iron cook and then using a wooden utensil like a spreader or a chopstick, it was easy to loosen the sugar mixture and then I wiped it clean with a damp cloth and paper towels.
