Belgian waffles are one of those foods are crave-able any time of the day. Crunchy on the outside, warm and soft on the inside. Smothered in syrup, butter or whipped cream. Topped with fruit or chocolate event nuts. Waffles can be sweet or savory for breakfast or dinner.
I found Lars Own Belgian Pearl Sugar at Sur La Table and it just so happened to come with a recipe on the side of the box so I had to give it a try.
I topped my waffles off with cool whip and maple syrup from Faddens General Country Store in Woodstock, NH.
These waffles were un-like any I have tried. They had more of a bread consistency, they were thick and chewy. The pieces of sugar were gooey and melty and caramelized on the outside. Everyone in my house love them.
