Last month when Julie mentioned she wanted to celebrate her birthday with a pumpkin recipe round-up I knew I wanted to join in the fun! I love baking and cooking with pumpkin, it is so versatile and delicious. I tend to think sweet when I conjure up ideas for pumpkin, so it comes as no surprise I went for a sweet breakfast treat.
What better way to start a birthday celebration than with a yummy breakfast? I made these Double Chocolate Pumpkin Waffles in honor of Julie’s birthday, but I’m sure you’ll love them too. Rich, chocolate and pumpkin combine for a decadent, crisp waffle. They’re perfect sprinkled with powdered sugar and would be equally as awesome drizzled with chocolate syrup, a dollop of fresh whipped cream or even served as dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as we did, happy birthday Julie!
