Everything Tastes Better Served in a Waffle Bowl!

Everything Tastes Better Served in a Waffle Bowl!

Many years ago, there was a novelty hit song with the line, “Talk about your childhood wishes, you can even eat the dishes!” 

At the time, it probably seemed like an impossible dream for those who love sweet treats, but Joy Cone made that dream a reality with the creation of the Joy Cone Waffle Bowl and the waffle bowl’s smaller sibling, the enJOY-a-Bowl®.

The same process is used to make Joy Cone’s Waffle Bowls as is used in making Joy Cone’s popular Waffle Cones. The batter is a blend of high-grade cake and pastry flours, sweetened with dark brown sugar instead of using the more common and cheaper combination of white sugar and molasses, which often results in a bitter taste.

For a glimpse into the making of Joy Cone Waffle Bowls, along with Joy Cone’s many other delicious products, you can follow the process shown at the Joy Cone facility in Flagstaff, Arizona.

With a width of 4.5 inches, and a depth of nearly two inches, the Waffle Bowl can hold enough treats to satisfy even the most extreme sweet tooth.

  • Peanut Butter and Jelly Sundaes – In a period of less than 15 years, at the opening of the 20th century, all the components would be in place … peanut butter, jelly, and waffle cones … which, a century later, would combine to make this spectacular waffle-bowl treat.
  • All-American BBQ Bowl – Everyone loves the taste of barbecue, and now, thanks to Joy Cone’s Waffle Bowls, there’s a way to enjoy a smoky barbecue meal any time of year, without ever washing a dish.
  • Chicken ‘N Waffle Bowls – This is an easy-to-make variation on a traditional American dish that provides perfectly contrasting combinations of warm and cool, sweet and savory, with smooth and crunchy texture.
  • Rhode Island Doughboy Waffle Bowl SundaesInvented by Italian Americans, Rhode Island Doughboys are typically made using fried pizza dough. We made our own Joy Cone twist on this New England favorite.
  • Mini Apple Pie Waffle BowlsWe know the extra effort of taking a traditional dessert and turning it into a smaller-sized treat is a little gesture that means the world to kids. That’s why these mini apple pies, featuring enJOY-a-Bowls®, are such a hit with families. Adults should feel free to use the larger Joy Cone Waffle Bowl! 
  • Warm Churro SundaesThe usually warm and wonderful flavor of Mexico’s most popular dessert can now be served with a cool twist: Warm Churro Sundaes, made with an enJOY-a-Bowl® or … for heartier appetites … the larger Waffle Bowl.

There are, of course, a nearly unlimited number of recipes that anyone can create, since everyone’s favorite food tastes better served in a Joy Cone Waffle Bowl or enJOY-a-Bowl®. The best part? You can even eat the dishes!
