Disney Kitchen - Mickey Waffle Maker

For Christmas I treated myself to a Mickey Waffle Maker since it was on a fabulous sale. No one in my family was disappointed when we fired up this baby! It has six cavities (three on each side) for making mini Mickey-shaped waffles just like you get in the parks.
Fill each cavity with batter, close, and flip and you're making waffles! It also comes with a handy-dandy recipe book. It is one of the most simple kitchen tools I've ever used. Waffles come out perfectly crisp just like my husband likes them and stay that way for quite a long time. It is a huge bummer when your waffle goes soft before you've even had a chance to eat it. Not with Mickey at the helm! We have used it quite a few times already to make plain waffles and for Valentine's Day I'm planning to use it for Red Velvet waffles!
I started with the recipe for Buttermilk Waffles from the book and it was an instant hit with my husband! He was really pleased with the tang from the buttermilk and the sweetness level was just right. Blueberry syrup is a new favorite of his and who can resist some whipped cream and powdered sugar to decorate a breakfast plate?!
 
If you're a breakfast lover I would definitely recommend this waffle maker. Just wait for Disney to run a big sale like they did for Black Friday when I got it for 50% off since it is a bit pricey without a sale/discount.
