Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Waffles 
Pumpkin pie is a staple holiday dessert, but it takes on a new layer of fun in waffle form. Pumpkin puree flavors up basic waffle batter, while a decadent cinnamon-chocolate topping is the stuff holiday dreams are made of. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour 
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar 
  • 1/4 cup white sugar 
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon 
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1/4 cup milk 
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips 
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Directions
In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1/4 cup brown sugar, white sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together the pumpkin puree, eggs, milk and melted butter. Add wet ingredients to dry, then stir to combine fully. Pour a portion of batter into Oster® Titanium Infused DuraCeramic™ Flip Waffle Maker. Close waffle maker and rotate 180 degrees to the right; cook for 3-5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. To make the topping, melt chocolate chips in microwave, then stir in heavy cream, 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Pour over cooked waffles and enjoy. 

Baked Apple Dippers

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 additional cup white sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 4 large apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • Vanilla ice cream

Directions
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1/2 cup white sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, milk and butter. Add wet ingredients to dry, then stir to combine fully. To make the compote, heat 1 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring consistently as sugars begin to melt. Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon and diced apples. Stir consistently as apples begin to soften; once tender, remove from pan. Pour portion of waffle batter into Oster® Titanium Infused DuraCeramic™ Flip Waffle Maker. Close waffle maker and rotate 180 degrees to the right; cook for 3-5 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Slice each waffle into evenly sized bars, and serve with a small bowl of the compote for dipping.
