 I have something super duper delicious for you! The kid in you (and your kids too) will LOVE this French Toast breakfast. Remember the little Orange Creamsicle ice cream pops that you loved so much as a kid? I incorporated their great flavor into our breakfast.

Hubs actually still loves Orange Creamsicles and anything flavored like them. I got him a pack of lollipops for Valentine’s day (yes, he is easily satisfied with candy) and I wanted to try one. When I reached for the orange one, I was told not to even think about touching the Cotton Candy and the Orange Creamsicle. He loves those a little too much.

Light bulb…That’s when I got the bright idea to make something in Orange Creamsicle flavor for breakfast. I was originally going to make pancakes because they both could eat pancakes for every meal of the day. But while I was shopping, I thought that French Toast would be even better. It’s just so good when stuffed with cream cheese. I was right, it was the perfect combination!
