Yesterday during my first visit to target in weeks, I had a few extra minutes to browse (which rarely happens). In the middle of the aisle in the kitchen section, I found the cutest thing ever. Yes, I just want to say it again – the cutest thing ever. I know you are holding your breathe in anticipation. And here it is:
Yes a little baby waffle make. Isn’t that the cutest thing you ever saw. So of course I had to buy one because you know I have this obsession with kitchen gadgets.
I took it home and was so excited to show my grandson, Peyton, because he is my little Sioux chef and he was just excited as I was. First thing this morning, we heated it up and went to town making baby waffles. Of course the whole family jumped into the fun and my grandsons came up with their own version of waffles with white chocolate chips and peppermint sprinkles. Pretty sure that is a great combination for Christmas.
Can I just tell you my little purchase from Target made our morning. We had so much fun, made a big mess in the kitchen and enjoyed every bite. This little waffle maker was $10 from Target and worth every penny. I am sure I have lots more mornings of making baby waffles in my future. One thing I have learned this year is take the little things that come in your life and enjoy them fully.
After coming home I checked out Amazon and found a snowflake mini waffle maker made by the same company and a wonderful Mini Waffles Recipe Book with Gluten, Vegan, Paleo, Dairy + Nut Free Options, Over 80+ Easy to Follow Guides, Since my other grandson, Ashton, loves to cook also I ordered those two things for him for Christmas. Christmas morning with snowflake waffles I am sure will make me the coolest grandma ever (at least for one day).
Here is the recipe from the recipe book included with the waffle maker which we used to make the waffles.
