Brownie Heart Waffles

Breakfast With Cupid
Celebrate Valentine's Day by whipping up this decadent waffle recipe. Technically, they're waffles so you don't have to feel guilty if you eat them for breakfast, however, they're also rich enough to serve as a  whimsical dessert. The waffles are loaded with chocolate flavor and taste incredibly similar to brownies. They're delicious enough to eat plain but you can also go crazy with a variety of toppings and syrups.
