Don’t you love the changing of the seasons? I love Spring time and it’s here again! The leaves are turning green, the sun is out, the birds are singing… there’s so much to be excited about!
One thing that doesn’t change for me throughout the year though, is my morning routine. I don’t know about you, but the minute I open my eyes and get out of bed in the morning, I get excited about my first cup of coffee. For me, having my morning coffee is beneficial to me. It helps me to relax, ponder on my day’s plan ahead, while enjoying a quiet moment to myself.
If you’re anything like me and your favorite part of waking up is a warm, delicious brew in your cup, then you’ll like the flavors of International Delight® Creamers to make your coffee taste perfect! Our family recently tried three of their yummy coffee creamer flavors: HERSHEY’S® Chocolate Caramel, REESE’S® Peanut Butter Cup and Almond Joy™. Having these yummy coffee creamers in my coffee is like having my favorite candy in my coffee every morning! Now, isn’t this genius? You can enjoy your favorite candy flavors by simply adding these delicious creamers from International Delight® to your daily cup of coffee! Not only that, you can incorporate them in many delicious recipes! (I will be sharing one of my favorite breakfast recipes here in a bit).
But before I talk about my recipe, I want to share with you a nice deal at Walmart when you buy the International Delight® 32 oz. bottles. Since I’m all about saving money, I went to my local Walmart and used my free, money-saving Ibotta app to earn $0.50 on International Delight® Coffee Creamer 32 oz. bottles. Click the photo below if you want to get in on this deal too! The next time you’re at Walmart, be sure to look for the display that includes a tear pad with a recipe and $0.50 coupon valid in April.
If you’ve never had chocolate and almond together in a pancake before, I’ll tell you, if food ingredients have souls, these two are perfect soulmates! I made them with International Delight® Almond Joy™ Creamer and the whole family love these pancakes! Since everyone in this house are huge chocolate fans, these pancakes are always a hit!
These pancakes are sweet and indulgent, so I do save them on mornings when I feel like treating myself and my family. Also these are great for when you’re inviting a few friends over for brunch. They’re a zip to make with most of the ingredients you already have in your pantry. I hope you enjoy these pancakes as much as our family does!
