The new waffle/doughnut hybrid – “wonuts” –are waffles deep-fried in vegetable shortening then dipped in sugar, marshmallow, maple, or chocolate glazes. Add toppings like sprinkles, granola, or chocolate shavings, and there you have it. Can you IMAGINE? Available, for now, only at the Waffles Cafe in Chicago.
The whole wheat Wonut with a toasted marshmallow glaze, granola, and dried fruit:
The Mexican chocolate Wonut with spicy cocoa on the inside, and candied orange peel & dark chocolate shavings on the outside:
The sugar-glazed red velvet Wonut sprinkled with leftover crunchy red velvet ends:
The green tea Wonut made with Japanese matcha powder, candied pistachios, and ginger:
And a liege-style that’s almost birthday cake-like, with sugar icing and sprinkles:
If you’er in the Chicago area and need to try them for yourself, wonuts are already available at Waffles’ Lakeview and South Loop locations, and’ll also be available at their forthcoming Streeterville location in the old Arami GO space. (via the Thrillist)
