Let's Make It
Bring 3/4 cup strawberries, water, and 1 Tbsp. drink mix to boil in saucepan on medium-high heat; simmer on low heat 12 to 15 min. or until slightly thickened, mashing strawberries lightly after about 10 min. Remove from heat.
Spray 8-inch square electric waffle iron with cooking spray. Heat iron to medium-high heat.
Mix Neufchatel and remaining drink mix until blended. Unroll crescent dough onto lightly floured cutting board; roll or pat into 16x8-inch rectangle. Cut into 2 (8-inch) squares.
Place 1 dough square on bottom grid of waffle iron. (Dough will not completely cover grid.) Top with half the Neufchatel mixture; spread carefully to within 1 inch of edges. Top with remaining strawberries; cover with remaining dough. Close lid.
Cook 4 to 5 min. or until golden brown. Use fork to transfer waffle from grid to work surface. Cool slightly.
Cut waffle into 4 squares, then cut each square diagonally into quarters. Serve warm topped with strawberry sauce and remaining Neufchatel mixture.
Balance out these waffles by serving them with a colorful fruit salad.
Prepare using 1 can (8 oz.) refrigerated crescent dinner rolls, firmly pressing perforations together to seal before cutting into squares as directed.
