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.
