I tried out one of their recipes and added my own twist. The recipe uses their convenient Easy Pack Chocolate Chip Pancake or Funfetti Pancake mix. It is a fun twist on regular waffles using the convenience of a mix. I topped mine with a bananas,whipped cream and a simple homemade caramel sauce. You could always use caramel ice cream topping to make it even easier. These waffles were delicious and would be great for a special treat. I especially think it would be a perfect birthday breakfast.
You could also make the waffle more savory by topping it diced cooked bacon and then drizzle them with a mixture of 1/4 cup syrup and 3/4 cup caramel sauce. Or you could use them for dessert, just top with scoop of ice cream along with the caramel sauce or dulce de leche.
