Fruit Salad & Meringue Waffle Cones

With our very hot summer, fruit platters are always a go-to food for celebrations and Christmas gatherings and I have just created a way to make eating fruit fun! It’s definitely fruit salad with a twist.

Perfect as a Christmas fruit salad idea or for any party or get together, check out these fruit salad and meringue waffle cones I put together for a family gathering and Elliott’s childcare Christmas party last weekend!

Mr. G is NOT a fruit eater, but he absolutely loved these. I think the meringue and the sweet waffle cone just takes it beyond your boring old fruit plate and the cone makes for a cup so there are no bowls or cups needed!

Fruit Salad Waffle Cones

Eva Lewis
Prep Time 20 mins
Total Time 20 mins
Servings 12


  • 1 box of 12 waffle cones
  • Fruit of your choice - I used kiwi fruit strawberries, rockmelon and blueberries. Opt for fruit that isn't overly watery otherwise it will make the cones soggy.
  • 1 x packet of small meringue nests


  • Chop up the fruit into small pieces and place in a bowl. The amount of fruit you cut up depends on the type of fruit you are using. You will get a good idea of what is enough.
  • Crumble the meringue over the fruit, about 4 nests for 12 waffle cones depending on how sweet you want it to be.
  • Mix the meringue through the fruit.
  • Spoon the fruit & meringue into the cones
  • Eat!

    Perfect timing! I’ve already got the cones ready for my daughters birthday party on the weekend but didn’t think to include meringue – that takes them to a whole other level! Yum

    This is genius! And no washing up… which is definitely a winner at any party! I can totally see these being gobbled up by adults and kids alike. Thanks for linking up with our Fabulous Foodie Fridays party! xx

    A fun idea. Do you have to eat them quickly due to the cone going soft from the fruit juices?

      Not overly quickly. When I made them it was one of the hottest days ever and they did pretty well, a little soft but didn’t have to eat them straight away. The waffle cones were pretty thick. I guess that’s why it’s best to try to use fruit that aren’t too watery.
