Do I really need to say it twice? It's a campfire breakfast (and it's dessert for breakfast--my personal favorite) without the campfire. Regular waffles are kicked up a few degrees with chocolate, graham cracker and marshmallows for a new twist on waffles and a new delivery method for a favorite summer dessert. Dave and I both enjoyed a few of these waffles on a Sunday morning and I'm so glad I felt a need to make waffles. These are such a fun flavor and a perfect for lazy summer breakfasts.
I hadn't made waffles in a while, but I wanted to make something a little fun. so off to Pinterest where I spied these S'mores Waffles from Sugar and Spice in the land of Balls and Sticks. Marcia made them gluten free, so I didn't have a lot of the ingredients on hand to make them just as she did. So I improvised, using her amount of mix-ins and stirring them into my go-to waffle recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book. Dave got this book when he first moved out on his own, and I've used many times to find simple recipes or look up techniques and suggestions. Between these two recipes, I thought these waffles turned out perfect for summer--a little sweet but still a hearty breakfast. Serve with maple syrup or a drizzle of chocolate sauce and you've got a campfire breakfast without the campfire.
