Flaky, buttery, with just the right amount of sweetness, croffles are one of the hottest new breakfast foods. With a soft, chewy inside and a crunchy outside, croffles are a hybrid between croissants and waffles.

They can be enjoyed at breakfast or as a sweet snack during the day. You only need two ingredients and a waffle iron to make croffles at home. Serve them on their own or with your favorite toppings. Maple syrup, fresh berries, jam, and Nutella are all amazing on homemade croffles.

Try making a batch this weekend – we're certain you'll love croffles so much, they'll become a regular fixture in your household!

What is a Croffle?

Croffles are a cross between a croissant and a waffle. This delicious breakfast dish was invented by an Irish pastry chef named Louise Lennox, and it has become widely popular across the globe, especially in Korea, where it is one of the best-loved sweet street foods.

It's made by cooking croissant pastry in a waffle iron until beautifully golden brown.

Croffle Ingredients

All you need is premade croissant pastry (if you can't find any, puff pastry will work, too) and some sugar, plus any toppings you'd like to layer over your croffles.

How to Make Croffles

You'll love how easy it is to make croffles. Preheat your waffle iron. Shape the dough into crescents, then roll them in sugar. Place one crescent at a time into the waffle iron and cook until golden brown. Place the croffles on a plate and garnish them with plenty of maple syrup and powdered sugar.

Tips for the Best Croffles

If you can't find croissant dough, use puff pastry instead.

There are loads of fantastic toppings you can put on your croffles. Try jam, butter, lemon curd, Nutella, honey, yogurt, or whipped cream.

Mix spices into the rolling sugar for extra flavor. Try cinnamon sugar, pumpkin spice sugar, or chai spice sugar.

How to Store Croissant Waffles

Put leftover croffles in an airtight container and refrigerate them for up to 5 days.


Heat your waffle maker. Pour the sugar into a large shallow dish.

Shape the dough into crescents.

Roll the crescents in sugar.

Working one at a time, place the crescent in the waffle maker. Cook for several minutes, or until golden brown.

Remove from the waffle maker. Garnish with powdered sugar and maple syrup, and serve warm.


Let your waffle maker preheat for several minutes before cooking the croffles.
