Wake your family up this morning with the sweet smell of waffles (or pancakes) and a warm cup of Torani’s Hot Chocolate. Maybe even wake up your sweetie with breakfast in bed! I’ve asked for a waffle iron for Christmas this year because waffles are my absolute FAVORITE type of breakfast food. Maybe I should snoop through the gifts real quick while everyone’s still sleeping, use it to make their breakfast, and then wrap it up again and act surprised! Actually now that I’ve written it down, it doesn’t sound like such a good plan. I’m not too suave about those things and am sure to get caught. Oh I know what to do! I’ll just wake everyone up now so we can open up our gifts and then make them breakfast with my new iron! They’ll be a little grumpy because it’s so early, but I’m sure these waffles can put a smile on anyone’s face. Enjoy the holidays and these mouth smiling recipes this morning!
