The first day of school is a really big deal. Whether you homeschool or send your child out of the home for school, the first day is always super important. Not only to us as parents, but most importantly to the children themselves. When we thought we were going to start Pre-K homeschool last year, I wanted to start our first day off amazing. What better way to do that than with a super amazing, fun, and delicious breakfast.
While Pre-K homeschool didn’t work out for us last year (Skibbles just wasn’t ready), we think she will be this year. We have started prepping our homeschool room and I’ve started planning out our first few weeks of materials. But what I was most excited about was when I thought of this genius first day of school breakfast. S’mores Waffles! I don’t know many kids that wouldn’t enjoy this for their first day breakfast, or any day breakfast if we are being truthful here.
I promise you read that right. We made S’mores Waffles.
We cooked golden delicious Belgian style waffles, cut them almost all the way apart, then stuffed with chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. Snack style you can eat them just like that. Or, top with crushed chocolate graham crackers and maple syrup. WHATTT!? S’mores Waffles are the bomb.com y’all. These need to be on your must make list.
Watch us make them ! Just click play 🙂
We use this waffle maker in our video.
Both girls went crazy over them, but admittedly, so did Andrew and I. This was definitely a fun back to school Mini Chef Mondays recipe to prepare for you all.
Now, I’m faced with the truth that we are giving Pre-K homeschool another go around. This time more focused with a ready to learn pre-schooler this year. The mama in me just wants to go hide in a corner and cry. Why is she about to turn 4 guys? FOUR!? I feel like I just had her. But she’s growing into this fiercely fun, crazy, independent, and intelligent child, and I couldn’t be more proud of that.
