The one treat that immediately caught my attention was the Spiced Pumpkin Waffle Sundae.

It is simply a spiced pumpkin waffle topped with vanilla soft serve and pixie-dusted with powdered sugar and Halloween sprinkles. Not only does it sound delicious, but I knew it was a treat I could easily replicate at home. Want to know how to make one?
As luck would have it, I found the perfect recipe for spiced pumpkin waffles in my Pancakes and Waffles cookbook.
First, whip up a batch of waffles (recipe to follow).
Top your waffles with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. Swirl on some whipped cream and sprinkle on some festive sprinkles. I just so happened to have bat shaped sprinkles in my pantry, so I used those along with some orange and black nonpareils.
We might not be making it to the party, but we can sure treat ourselves to some delicious dessert!
