Cream Cheese Waffles with Honey Whipped Cream – Deliciously sweet and fluffy waffles served with honey whipped cream and fresh berries.
It’s like cake for breakfast. I LOVE these SO much!
Hey, YOU! Happy Valentine’s Day!!! I’m screaming as if it was Christmas or somethin’.
I don’t even know. I think every day should be celebrated so I’ll just keep on screaming via exclamation points!
BUT, I do love this day. Not because it’s just Valentine’s Day, but because I know that many of you love birds are thinking so much about one another, and trying to make happy-moments for each other. I LOVE that! Even if you’re doing it for your parents! Or your kids! Celebrating love is the greatest thing of ever. ♥
Would it be wrong if I suggested you make a happy moment by presenting these waffles to your honey-bunny?!? ‘Cause these waffles are my love-language. Everything good, everything sweet and delicious tangled up in pretty waffles.
I don’t often make waffles, but when I do…. I share ’em with you.
But really, these waffles are great because first and foremost, they taste incredibly rich, tiny bit tangy, but feel light and fluffy. The Honey Whipped Cream then takes that tang and twists it around, giving it a layer of flavor that you are going to fall in love with. Trust me.
This is what my face is seeing this morning. This is what YOUR face should be seeing this morning, as well.
One more thing! It’s important. Don’t skip the Honey Whipped Cream! Please! You’re going to want to stick your face in it once you taste it. I promise you.
But, then again, you’ll have 110 calories-less to worry about if you did skip it. So. Your call!
Okay. Now. Go have a very happy Valentine’s Day and I’ll see you tomorrow! Buh-Bye!
