Christmas Tree Waffles

This recipe came across my Facebook newsfeed yesterday. Since the three granddaughters were spending the night last night, I immediately knew what their breakfast would be this morning. 

I cooked these in a Belgium waffle maker, but a regular round waffle maker would work fine as well. Green food coloring, mini chocolate candies, and a dusting of powdered sugar "snow" makes a magical Christmas season breakfast!

2 cups waffle mix
1 1/3 cup milk
1 egg
2 T. vegetable oil
2 t. vanilla extract
15 drops green food coloring
Confectioner's sugar
mini candy-coated chocolate pieces such as mini M & Ms or Sixlets

Preheat round waffle iron. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Mix all ingredients, except toppings, until blended.

Pour about 1/3 cup (if using regular waffle iron) or 1/2 cup (if using Belgium waffle iron) of the batter onto the center of hot waffle iron. Close lid. Let cook 1 - 2 minutes or until no longer steaming.

Carefully remove waffle. Repeat with remaining batter.

Carefully cut each waffle into four triangles. Layer 3 triangles on a serving plate to resemble a Christmas tree. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar. Place the candy pieces into the square of the waffle triangles for ornaments.
