1. Orangette Waffles

For this waffle recipe I took my inspiration from my favorite candy: chocolate covered orange peels. I took my favorite basic waffle mix and added lots of orange zest and cinnamon then drizzled the fresh stack with plenty of chocolate syrup. The result was a delicious breakfast that tasted just like my favorite candy!
