Halloween Goth Waffles with Ghostly White Chocolate Frosting

by | Updated: October 12th, 2018

The goth-food trend that swept Instagram feeds everywhere made its dark debut earlier this year. Black ice cream, black macaroons, black burger buns… It’s safe to say the anti-unicorn foods movement was strong. But similar to most food fads of its time, the hype shortly faded.

If you missed it, we’re bringing it back this Halloween with these spooky goth waffles! If you’re ready to switch back over to the dark side, the following recipe is for you!

More good news? This frighteningly festive breakfast contains one detoxifying ingredient, activated charcoal, which may actually be helpful after indulging in leftover Halloween candy. Score!

As for dinner, try our Halloween Black Bean Pasta with “Afraid-o” Sauce—a gory, yet well-balanced, recipe the entire family will love!
