A super delicious and alternative dish to serve with tea. Enjoy my easy to make and easier to eat afternoon tea waffles. This is a delicious bite size treat topped with chocolate spread and fresh berries.

These might seem fairly conventional for afternoon tea but hot buttermilk waffles with melted chocolate and hazelnut spread topped with fresh fruit is incredible. I love them and they’ve become a part of my favourite nibbled for sweet canapés and events.

Quirky afternoon tea ideas

It's a great sweet treat for Afternoon Tea Waffle Bites with nutella and topped with fresh berries.

Enjoy a delicious waffle bite with fresh fruit. They are favourites amongst my family and friends and great for everyone of all ages. This is a great base recipe for styling and adding flavours which you love. Of course you can change the fruit but you also make them savoury too if you don’t have such a sweet tooth.

I have made them with smoked salmon and cream cheese, bacon, sausages and homemade ketchup, curried chicken and even thin pieces of roast beef with a small smear of horseradish to add some fieriness to the finished Afternoon Tea Waffle Bites.
