I decided after spending the last several weekends at the mountain, I was ready for a weekend at home. When I go to Big Bear, it’s about a three hour drive, which means we get up before dawn on Saturday to head up there for the weekend. Whenever we stay home, it reminds me how much I love to sleep in. While sleeping in for me used to mean until 11 or 12, now it is usually 9am, followed by some lounging around before I actually decide to get up and make breakfast. Since we stayed home this weekend, I thought we needed to make a good breakfast. If you use a cake mix to make waffles, does that still qualify as breakfast?
While I am a pancake lover, my boyfriend is more of a waffle lover. I can’t say I ate these waffles for breakfast though. Let’s face it; these S’mores Red Velvet Waffle Stacks may be more of a dessert than a breakfast. These waffles are made with a cake mix and smothered in marshmallow fluff, chocolate fudge sauce and graham crackers. In all honesty, you might only need a half stack of these waffles because they are SO rich, but hey who am I to judge if you eat a full stack!
Instead of using just marshmallow fluff from the jar, I decided to create a marshmallow fluff frosting for these stacks. My second recommendation would be to use my favorite homemade marshmallow frosting from Lauren at Climbing Grier mountain. I used her frosting to make these Rice Krispie Treat S’mores, which are fabulous!
I also made some quick and easy chocolate shavings using Candiquik Candy coating. I melted some Candiquik in the microwaved and spread it on my non-stick baking sheet . I set it in the fridge to harden for a few minutes and then rolled the baking sheet to create the shavings. Nothing better than a quick and easy garnish.
