1. Combine the dry ingredients, through to the
cinnamon, in a large mixing bowl; whisk to
blend. In either a large measuring cup or
separate mixing bowl, combine the liquid
ingredients and whisk to combine. Add the
liquid ingredients to the dry and whisk until
almost smooth (some lumps are OK). Fold in
the morsels and mini marshmallows, if using.
2. Preheat the waffle maker to desired setting.
3. Pour a scant cup of batter onto the center of
the bottom waffle plate. Close the waffle maker
and turn clockwise to flip. Open the second
waffle plate and add another scant cup of
batter onto the center of that plate, close and
turn clockwise to flip. When the waffles are
ready, carefully open the waffle maker and
remove baked waffle. Then turn and open the
second waffle plate to remove the second
waffle. Repeat with remaining batter.
4. For best results, serve immediately.
