Let’s talk about dessert.
Some of you people don’t eat enough of it. I mean, I’ve heard from a few of you that only eat dessert once a week.
Guys, I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news, but I’m not even sure that’s legal. Dessert is sorta important, is what I’m saying.
I mean, I can think of a reason to celebrate just about any occasion with dessert.
Last day of school? You need cookies.
First day of a new job? Better make some brownies.
The mailman brought you mail today? Ice cream.
The sun was shining? Bake a cake.
There was plenty of oxygen on Earth for everyone this evening? I think that calls for a candy bar.
It’s the first day of Summer? Dessert Waffles.
Oh, yes. I just said dessert waffles. They’re a thing.
You see, when it’s ridiculously hot out no one wants to turn on the oven. I mean, I will generally be the crazy one that heats the whole house up for a cookie, but that’s mostly just because I really love cookies. It makes much more sense to keep the oven off, the house cool, and the waffle maker at the ready.
I used Pillsbury’s Orangesicle cake mix to create these simple waffles that are perfect for a quick and easy dessert. I thought they’d be a fun way to celebrate the oncoming of summer. The new summer flavors are not only tasty (hello, Orangesicle and Key Lime Pie!), but the colors are so fun and vibrant!
