Pin It Now! There are some things in life that are just worth jumping up and down about, doing a happy dance in your chair for, and/or yelling Hallelujah from the roof tops over.
This is worth all three. Are you ready for this?:
I know. Absolutely incredible. It tastes even better than it sounds.
And it sounds pretty stinkin' fabulous.
How did this recipe come about?
I had a stressful day at work and all I wanted to eat for dinner was a cupcake. Or twelve. I would happily eat a cupcake (or twelve) for dinner, but I don't think my super hungry hunk of a husband would appreciate eating a cupcake for dinner (he is disciplined, he wouldn't eat twelve).
So, I settled for waffles. But I didn't just want any kind of waffle. I wanted something with just a little extra oomph.
This was the oomphiest thing I have ever made.
I think these made me taller. And made my hair grow a little, too. And that blemish I had in my hairline? Disappeared upon my consumption of the mocha syrup.
It's so true that I can hardly stand it.
Waffles with Mocha Syrup
Yields: 8 Waffles and approximately 2 cups of syrup

1/4 cup of granulated sugar
1/4 cup of coffee
1 cup of brown sugar
1 TBS cocoa powder
6 TBS butter
1/2 cup whole milk
Directions for Waffles:
1. Preheat your waffle iron and spray with oil.
2. In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
