Who doesn’t love coconut?

I made some tres leches cupcakes for my darling friend Anna the other day and had left over tres leches sauce. They came out pretty wonderfully:

I decided it would be best to use the leftovers for waffles the next morning. So I did. Hope you enjoy!

    Sweetness, these sound yummy. Reminds me of the banana macadamia nut pancakes with coconut syrup that we had in Hawai’i
