To date I’ve lost 18 amazing pounds. After having never intentionally losing a single pound in my life I decided to celebrate with a very indulgent treat.

Cherry Chocolate Belgian Waffles.

Oh yes. They’re as good as they sound, maybe even better.

Even though we typically think of waffles as a breakfast food I would most definitely classify these as a dessert. The chocolate flavor is rich, the cherry pie filling is sweet and the big dollop of whipped cream just wraps these waffles up in yumminess.

But I can’t take full credit for this dessert because I couldn’t have done it without the KitchenAid Pro Line Series Waffle Baker. Aside from the stand mixer, it’s the one appliance I think every kitchen deserves to have which is why I included it in my kitchen e-store. I’ll be giving you more details in a full review of this product very soon … and a giveaway of one too! (exciting right?) But for now, I just wanted to share this great recipe. It’s my one indulgence for the week and I’ll also be sharing some very healthy waffle recipes that you’ll want to eat on a regular basis.

  1. This looks yum! Do you think it would be good with a strawberry topping? I’m not a huge cherry fan.

    • Definitely. I actually almost did strawberries because we had just bought a whole carton of them but then I dipped them and Emma nabbed the rest.

  2. Oh delicious! I’m a sucker for cherry pie filling!

  3. YUM!

  4. Those look delicious! Can’t wait to see what else you come up with using the waffle baker.

  5. A dessert waffle … oh my goodness!

  6. Oh my gosh.. You’re killin’ me girl!!

    • LOL I had a feeling you’d like these. Do you have a waffle baker yet?

      • No, but I feel like I need to go buy one right now!! Hahaha :) We’re moving in July/August to a bigger apartment hopefully. Once we’re settled in I’m getting one!

    So I’d love to try these but I have a smaller waffler. Do you think the recipe would work for that? It really does look like dessert and I know my family would love…esp. my 12 year old foodie!

    Congrats on your success with the eating plan! I am having a heck of a time at this part of my life with that struggle. Getting old is a bumpy ride and I do mean BUMPY!

    • Absolutely, you’ll just end up with more waffles. This made 2 of the big Belgians so I’m guessing maybe 6-8 of the smaller square ones.

    Real Belgian waffles without yeast or beaten egg whites? I might have to try this.
