This post is sponsored by Door County Coffee. I was provided with coffee to sample and facilitate a recipe of my choice. All opinions are my own.
Who said you can’t enjoy dessert for breakfast? Or even breakfast for dessert! With a hot cup of Door County Coffee, these Dark Chocolate Mocha Waffles were rich, chocolaty and filling! It was absolutely fabulous with a piping hot cup of coffee.
When I was asked to try Door County Coffee, I jumped on the chance. I love my coffee! I was so excited when I opened up the box filled to the rim with coffee. So many flavors, so little time. (actually that’s not true since I have an order in my cart ready to ship more!)
I hopped around on the Taste of Home website for awhile, trying to figure out what goes well with coffee that I could make. Baked goods are always a favorite and it didn’t take long before I came across these Chocolate Dessert Waffles from Taste of Home.
This recipe for Dark Chocolate Mocha Waffles is loosely based on this recipe. I omitted milk and added dark roast coffee. I didn’t want the berries, I wanted all chocolate for this one. So I added chocolate whipped cream and chocolate sauce.
After I decided what I was going to make from Taste of Home, I then had to figure out what coffee roast I wanted for the waffles. I chose Death’s Door. But my goodness any flavor they have would probably be incredible and could add a rich, deep flavor to these.
My favorite Door County Coffee was by far the Blackberry Shortcake with the Blueberry Cobbler coming in a close second.
While there wasn’t a single one they sent I didn’t love, other favorites include Chocolate Covered Strawberry, Black and Tan, Peanut Butter Crunch and Jamaican Me Crazy.
They also sent a travel mug that is my favorite travel mug by far. It keeps the coffee hot for hours and I’m constantly surprised by that. One of the best I’ve found. I will be ordering one for a friend for Christmas. I also received this adorable Electric Blue Stoneware Mug that I use every morning now. I’ve gotten quite a few compliments on it!
While these waffles were definitely the bomb dot com, the coffee from Door County Coffee was equally as impressive and delicious. I have gone through all I have except one bag of the Highlander Grogg which I am working my way through now. Time to purchase more!
