These crispy chocolate waffles with peanut butter sauce are a completely decadent breakfast and they’re gluten free!
If we’re being honest (what a dumb saying, of course I’m being honest, this is the one place I get to do that), I’m pretty happy we’ve got the Super Bowl behind us.
You’d think there’s no such thing as too much when it comes to cheese, buffalo wings and “party food” but, I’m over it.
I’d like my Pinterest feed to go back to pretty food things not the crap that American’s like to eat on a certain Sunday in February every year.
Crispy chocolate waffles with peanut butter sauce preferably.
If there’s one good thing about a dumbass groundhog seeing his shadow, it’s 6 more weeks of cozy winter weekend breakfasts.
There are few redeeming things about this season in NY and that is one of them.
So if you’re telling me I have to “endure” 6 more weekends with peanut butter sauce dripping down the side of my plate as I shovel chocolate waffles into my mouth and then chill on the couch with a mug of coffee and Pinterest for a couple hours…
If you don’t want to make the peanut butter sauce for the waffles, try this vanilla macadamia nut butter instead. It’s got the decadent drippy thing going on too that’s equally delicious with the chocolate waffles.
