Today is my son’s 7th birthday. I get super sentimental on my kid’s birthdays. I can’t help it; time just goes by so fast.
Except for the first five-and-a-half months of my son’s life. I thought they would never, ever, ever, ever end. People told me that colic only lasts for three months, but they lied. (A little side note… if you have a baby with colic right now, which I’m guessing you don’t, because if you did you would probably be crying too, instead of reading a recipe for chocolate milk waffles, but if you do, first of all, I’m so very, very sorry. Second, it will end. I know you don’t believe me, but I promise you, it will end).
Fortunately (for him), Batman is now an extremely pleasant kid. Maybe he thought he’d get all his crying done early in life. I don’t know, but I’m grateful. I’m so grateful that I just might make him some of these for his birthday breakfast:
Chocolate Milk Waffles
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate milk
- 1/2 cup canola (or vegetable) oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat waffle iron.
- In a large bowl, whisk eggs with a fork. Mix in milk, oil, and vanilla.
- Add dry ingredients and mix with fork just until combined. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron and cook until they’re as done as you like.
These are so not breakfast waffles. Actually, I suspect they’d be great with ice cream and chocolate syrup on top. But don’t tell anybody, I served them for breakfast anyway. If a chocolate doughnut can be called breakfast, then so can a chocolate waffle. Take that, Cheerios.
I probably don’t have to tell you that my Critics all love these. They were so busy scarfing them down that I didn’t get much more than “Mmmmm…” and “They’re good!” from anybody, and that’s fine by me!
Happy My Son’s Birthday!!
