These Red Velvet Waffles with White Chocolate Glaze are perfect for your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day! They could be eaten for breakfast or dessert and are perfectly, fluffy with an easy glaze that is made in the microwave.
My husband is obsessed with red velvet anything, so it was perfectly fitting to make him a batch of Red Velvet Waffles the weekend before Valentine’s Day. They were thoroughly enjoyed by my daughters as well (maybe too much). Good luck to me, trying to get them to eat anything for lunch!
These beauties are so delectable that they could even be enjoyed as an after-dinner dessert. I could easily, see using a cookie cutter to make a heart-shape and topping it with vanilla ice cream and plenty of chocolate sauce. I need to go save a few pieces while I still can to try this idea out! Wouldn’t, it also be cute to use a star-shaped cookie cutter for 4th of July and top it with fresh blueberries and whipped cream? So many options, so little time!
Waffles or pancakes are mandatory around here every Sunday. You haven’t lived until you’ve tried Tiramisu Pancakes and can never go wrong with delectable, Buttermilk Blueberry Waffles. I’m always testing out new recipes and really think I hit the jackpot with these. A lot of people like cream cheese icing or glaze with their red velvet, but you have to try this easy, white chocolate glaze! There is no big mess to clean up with beaters and no waiting for cream cheese to soften. This glaze is made in the microwave with zero fuss! Feel free to drizzle a bit extra for red velvety greatness. I may have dipped my waffle in the bowl like chips and dip.
If you are going to go glam for breakfast, be sure to have a cocktail while you’re at it! My Pineapple Orange Creamsicle Mimosas are a must. You could even fancy yourself a Pancake Shot for a lovely digestif. Visit my Cocktail Page for all of my favorite adult beverages.
