In the meantime, if you love the summer, beaches, waves, pools, and coconuts; I have the solution to your summer snacking right here. Want something sweet, easy and fun to create for poolside entertaining this summer? Toasted Coconut Waffle Bites will do the trick! I whipped these up in no time using the new OREO Thins, coconut crème flavor I picked up at Walmart in the cookie aisle.

There are literally dozens of flavors to choose from and the next one I intend on sampling are the Jelly Donut ones. Everyone loves a good jelly donut right? A few flavors I would love to see next are rocky road, coconut creme pie, peanut butter banana, oatmeal cream pie and maybe even a few classic cereal flavors. That would be totally interesting!

What flavor would you create?

For now though, let’s focus on these delicious OREO Thins with coconut crème filling. They are delightful and pair perfectly with my recipe. Adding the toasted coconut on top is like the icing on the cake.

Let’s get started!

Grab your waffle iron and the following ingredients, and let’s get snacking!

For the cookies:

  • 2 sticks, unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup, sugar
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups, flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups, Coconut Flakes
  • 6 tbsp. crushed OREO Thins, coconut crème flavor (about 18 cookies)

For the glaze:

  • 1 1/2 cups, powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp. milk

Getting Started!

  1. Start by preparing your glaze. In a medium bowl, combine the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and milk. Whisk until smooth and set aside.
  2. Preheat your file iron. I set mine to 3.5 on the dial.
  3. For toasting the coconut flakes, spread a thin, even layer across a microwave safe plate. I used about a cup on my plate.
  4. Place the plate in the microwave and cook for one minute. When done, stir the coconut flakes to redistrubute them and repeat for another minute. Stir again and cook in 30 second intervals until desired color.
  5. Repeat with another cup of flakes, if desired.
  6. In a large bowl or stand mixer, combine the butter and sugars. Mix with the paddle attachment on high speed, until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  7. Reduce speed to medium-low and add vanilla extract and eggs. Combine until smooth.
  8. Reduce speed to low and gradually add flour, salt and baking powder. Mix well.
  9. Stir in crushed OREO bits on low, or with a spatula.

Get Baking!

  1. Spray your waffle iron with a non-stick cooking spray and add about a tablespoon of batter onto your waffle iron.
  2. Close and allow to cook for about a minute and a half or until golden brown.
  3. Remove the waffle bites from the waffle iron when done and drizzle with glaze immediately.
  4. Finally, top with toasted coconut, set aside to cool and enjoy the taste of summer!
