“We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn’t matter, but work is third.” – Leslie Knope

Who doesn’t love waffles? (get out of here.) August 24 is National Waffle Day, and we want you to celebrate it right. Of course, you can’t improve on perfection: there’s nothing like a fresh flour waffle smeared in maple syrup or honey. But we shouldn’t limit the waffle! Here are 3 NYC restaurant-inspired ways to mix up the classic waffle:

1. Deluxe Breakfast

2. Ice cream in a waffle

While it may be a little more difficult to reproduce Wowfull’s special Hong Kong egg waffle, there’s no reason you can’t scoop some ice cream onto a waffle, drizzle it in chocolate sauce, and pour on some sprinkles and whipped cream. Calories don’t count on National Waffle Day.

3. S’more waffles

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better after the ice cream in a waffle! S’moreffles are the best thing to happen to waffles since… waffles. After making the graham cracker dough, all you need to do is fry up some waffles and add chocolate and marshmallows. Just like a regular s’more, but with waffles! What’s better than that?

Happy National Waffle Day!
