Waffles. Sometimes they are toasty, brown and hard. Other times they are light, airy and mushy. I don’t think there is necessarily a right or wrong way to make waffles, but I like mine to be a mixture between both of those. I like them to be golden brown, toasty on the outside and warm, airy and a little mushy on the inside. It is just the perfect combination for me. Now, top those with a blend of delicious fruit and a drizzle of Nutella and you’ve got yourself a breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner. Or midnight snack.
You get the idea. This is SO GOOD, you will want it at anytime. It can even be dessert, for crying out loud! So yummy and airy with a nice tang and sweetness of fruit and then that luscious hazelnut chocolaty topping. Yum, yum, I cannot wait to have this again.

Lucky for me, these freeze beautifully. I made about 6 and Mikey and I had one each. I placed the other 4 in a Ziplock and froze them. When it is time to thaw, you can either pop them in the toaster as you would a normal frozen waffle, or in the oven if they are too thick. They turn out beautifully! Actually, I am having them again tomorrow since I have a few left. 😉
These were so incredibly easy to make with the right tool. If you do not have a waffle maker, consider buying one. This is the one I have and it is AMAZING! Never fails and always gives me the right amount of time to make a perfect waffle.
