Gingerbread Waffles

I wanted to share something seasonal that would scream I-wish-I-was-in-front-of-a-fire snuggling, but a little different.  I have a little crush on Gingerbread.  Then I found these Gingerbread Waffles.  They are amazing!  Breakfast happiness on a fork, full of baking spices and that perfect cozy feeling.  These waffles will leave you feeling like you just got a big hug.  And who doesn’t need a hug?

    Wow, these look great! I can't find molasses around these parts, but if by some miracle I do, these WILL be happening soon in my house. I'll probably try them just using a basic recipe and the spices alone. That'll still be yummy.
