"Honeycomb" Waffle-Stix and UN-Believable Honey Butter

I made these Cornbread Waffle-Stix to look like Honeycomb for a Ladies Luncheon. You can read about it here.
Cornbread Waffle-Stix
  • 1 Package Cornbread Mix (any brand will work,  just use the 7 oz size)
  • 1 cup Bisquik (or any brand Complete Baking Mix)
  • 3/4 cup Milk (any variety, though Whole Milk will taste best)
  • 1/4 cup Vanilla Yogurt (Greek Yogurt is best....My FAVORITE brand is ZOI, if you can find it!.)
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 TBL Honey Powder (**see note)
  • optional: 1 Egg White, beaten to stiff peaks
  1. Combine all ingredients except egg white, and stir until moistened. Don't over-mix or your end product will be tough.
  2. If desired, gently fold in the beaten egg white. (This addition makes the waffles lighter and crisper)
  3. Bake as directed in your waffle-stix maker, or waffle maker. If using mini-muffin pans, bake according the time given on the cornbread mix.
  4. This makes roughly 20 waffle-stix. The recipe can easily be doubled. 
**Note: Honey Powder is basically dried honey, and can now be found at Walmart and Winco. It's slightly expensive, but when you consider that it will keep practically forever, it's a worthy item to have in your pantry. I like it in lots of different foods, and have yet to be disappointed by it. If you can't find it, or you're afraid to try it, you can substitute with equal parts of regular honey. Just know that it will make your batter stickier and that might be a problem if your waffle maker is not non-stick.

UN-Believable Honey Butter
  • 1 cup Butter 
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 1/2 cup Marshmallow Cream 
  1. Soften the butter well before adding other 2 ingredients. 
  2. Blend well.
  3. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks, covered tightly. Let soften to room temperature before using, if desired.
  4. Try not to eat it all when you first make it. Try really, really hard.
