I saw a few snowflakes in the air last week and I nearly went bazonkers with excitement. I just don’t get it here very often, and it rarely sticks.
Last year there was one day with a thin blanket that lasted just a few hours, and it made me so happy! I know all of you buried in the Northeast are rolling your eyes at my piddly winterscape. Sorry!
It’s just that I miss all the fun outdoor activities from my years in Michigan, even shoveling snow. Yep, I love doing that! Always have.
I love sledding, tubing, tobogganing (there are some really cool frozen runs in the Kalamazoo area) and ice skating. And of course building at least one snowman a year is essential. The top
outdoor wintertime activity for Americans is building a snowman, followed by starting a snowball fight and sledding.
Watching movies tops the list of Americans’ favorite indoor winter activities, followed by reading books and playing games.
Whether indoors or outdoors, nearly 70 percent of us agree that hot chocolate is the drink that reminds us most of childhood. There’s something very comforting about a nice hot mug of cocoa after a day of winter fun.
There’s also something very comforting about a hot breakfast for dinner after winter fun, and that’s how these chocolate marshmallow waffles came to be. They combine two of my favorite things – waffles and chocolatey goodness.
Just substitute Limited Edition TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow Milk in place of regular milk when you make your waffles and sprinkle in some chocolate chips. It completely changes the flavor, and it’s so good!
I also made some raspberry cream topping with Polaner All Fruit and Cool Whip, and added a few fresh berries on top. It all works together to make the chocolate marshmallow waffles even more delicious!
- 2 cups Original Bisquick mix
- 1⅓ cups TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 1 8oz container Cool Whip
- ⅓ cup Polaner All Fruit Raspberry spread
- Heat waffle iron; spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- Combine Bisquick, milk, oil and egg in a mixing bowl; stir until blended. Pour onto center of hot waffle iron. Close lid of waffle iron. Bake for about 5 minutes or until steaming stops. Remove waffle.
- To make raspberry cream topping, fold fruit spread gently into container of Cool Whip until fruit is dispersed evenly, but still has little pieces showing. Spoon or pipe onto plated waffle and add fresh berries and maple syrup, as desired.
