Yee-haw, y’all.

It’s about time for summer break!

I know, not every parent loves the months and months of sibling rivalry, whining about boredom, and non-stop sticky popsicle puddles all over the place, but as a homeschooler? I love summer break! It means that I don’t have to argue about workbooks or waste my time reading aloud to children that aren’t listening.

I thought it would be fun to celebrate the end of the school year (we don’t actually finish school until July around here – we have a weird schedule, but we’ll celebrate the end of year for you!) with a special breakfast!

Can you imagine surprising your kids on their first day of summer break with these rich chocolate waffles drowned in melted peanut butter? Breakfast nirvana.

Of course, you could stop there, but I livened things up with this totes adorable yee-haw cake topper! It just cracks me up for some reason! Love it!

Lisa Leonard Designs makes all kinds of adorable hand stamped goodies from jewelery to decor. The quality of my little cake topper is top notch. The letters aren’t perfectly straight, which just adds to the adorable hand made factor.

    First off let me say everything on your website looks amazing. I love your photography and the pictures of these waffles are just adorable. < 3

    I tried these one morning for myself and my boyfriend, in which I can say I was slightly disappointed in the waffles themselves. Although they look really chocolate-y, they definitely did not pack a chocolate punch for me. To make them taste more of how I wanted I poured peanut butter, chocolate, and caramel sauce all over them (you know, you only live once). However I do want to try and make these again sometime! I'm thinking an addition of chocolate chips might help add more of the flavor I was hoping for.

      Hi Ember!

      Thanks for the sweet comment. :)

      I’m sorry you weren’t thrilled with the waffles! Chocolate chips would be a great addition! :)


  12. YUM!
