A few months ago, I finally gave in and purchased a waffle maker. What took so long? Well, I have been wanting one for a long time but was nervous about buying my own because I was worried I would be making waffles all the time. The last thing I need is waffles every day. I am happy to say that I haven’t over-used the waffle maker as I thought I would. I do use it to make waffles for the kids, but mostly just as a special treat. I was inspired to make some Halloween themed waffles when I discovered these delicious and fun TruMoo products.
As you can tell from the half empty container, my kids are big fans of TruMoo milks. Each glass of Orange Scream milk and TruMoo chocolate milk contains 8 essential ingredients. They are sweetened with just enough sugar and contain no high fructose corn syrup.
I love the unique flavor of TruMoo Orange Scream and the fact that it contains no artificial growth hormones. Kids can get what they need and what they want. It’s a win-win!
- 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 2 eggs
- 1 3/4 cups of TruMoo Orange Scream milk
- 1/2 cup of oil
- Whipped cream
- Candy for eyes and mouth
This recipe will make between 3-4 circular waffles depending on the size of your waffle maker.
You will need two medium sized bowls for this ghost waffles recipe. In one bowl combine flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and baking powder. In another bowl, beat eggs and mix in TruMoo Orange Scream milk and oil. Combine wet mixture with dry mixture, stirring until wet.
Different models of waffle makers require different amounts of batter. Following the directions for your waffle maker, pour in the batter, close the top and open when done.
Once you remove your waffles from the waffle maker, you can start turning them into ghost waffles. To begin, plate them up. You can add syrup if you wish.
You will need to work fast for this next part as the hot waffles will cause the whipped cream to start melting. Spray some whipped cream on the top of the waffles and add some candy for eyes and a mouth. I found some candy eyes in the cake decorating section of my local grocery store and used them on these ghost waffles.
You can tell in this next photo that our little ghost friend is really starting to feel the heat. No need to worry though, he was eaten soon after by some very hungry kids.TruMoo Orange Scream milk adds a yummy orange cream flavor to these waffles. My kids enjoyed theirs with some TruMoo Chocolate milk. The waffles were so good they didn’t even need syrup. When I whipped up the next batch, my kids just ate them plain.
