Pumpkin Waffles

Halloween falls on a Monday this year (le sigh), but if you want to surprise your kids when they wake up on Halloween morning, how about these Jack O’Lantern Waffles? I know, I know – getting up early on a Monday doesn’t sound like much fun, but it is a holiday after all, right? I love to watch my boys faces light up when I make them something fun like these fun waffles. The waffles themselves are pretty easy to make and my favorite part is that you can get as creative with them as you want. ย As you can see, I put littleย Jack O’Lantern faces on mine, but you don’t have to if you want to serve yours as plain pumpkins. ย Or you can even use different colored M&M’s. Even better, let the kids decorate their own – just have fun with them.

Jack O’Lantern Waffles

Here’s what you need:

  • 2 Cups all purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • Orange gel food coloring
  • 3/4 Cup milk
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Mega M&M’s to decorate your waffles with

Here’s what you do:

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, white sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and brown sugar then mix together
