Today is National Chocolate Chip Day, tomorrow is National Waffle Day, and the next day is National Root Beer Float Day. These are some of my son’s favorite foods, so I guess this is his lucky week! He will most likely have chocolate chip waffles and a root beer float to go with it. (If you aren’t into sweets for breakfast, this combination would be good for dessert or a summer afternoon snack.)
Want to get rid of some over-ripe bananas? Try this easy recipe for banana chocolate chip waffles.
Hint: If you don’t have a waffle maker, buy a box of frozen homestyle or buttermilk waffles and place chocolate chips in the little squares. Tastes better than the store-bought chocolate chip waffles.
Chocolate chip waffles topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream actually make a great dessert. Or try a Toasted Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich.
Did You Know…? A vendor ran out of bowls at the 1905 St. Louis World’s Fair, so he decided to start serving ice cream in a rolled up waffle. The world’s first waffle cone!
