Holiday Waffles

Holiday Waffles | Sprinkles for Breakfast

Today's post is literally about having sprinkles for breakfast. I know I talk a lot about sprinkles here, but today I took a simple waffle recipe and gave it a total Sprinkles for Breakfast Holiday makeover.

I took a classic waffle recipe, packed it with red and green jimmies, swapped out the maple syrup for some icing, and then topped the whole thing off with a lot more sprinkles.

I know that for kids, Christmas morning is all about the presents. I remember when I was little, how excited I was to get down the stairs to check out the goods. But once all the unwrapping is over,  the kids gotta eat. These Holiday Waffles are the perfect post present mania treat.

They are delicious, easy to make AND festive. Plus, they only take 20 minutes to make. What more could you ask for?
