I have taken my tried-and-true Belgian waffle recipe and made it into a chocolate-lover's dream.

The best part is that this waffle is not overly sweet, but still has a definite chocolate taste. Most of the sweetness comes from the toppings: fresh, homemade raspberry sauce, chocolate drizzle and whipped cream.

The recipe can easily make 12 large Belgian waffles, but the batter can also go right into the fridge and be used over the next couple of days. In other words, don't feel obligated to make them all at once. However, if you’re up for using all the batter, the waffles freeze well.
