"These are excellent. However, they are too rich for us, for breakfast. They are a great dessert! I made them when we were having friends for dinner and froze them until dessert time. I had the topping and syrup out, while to ate, to come to room temperature. We popped the waffles in the toaster, then everyone added the topping and syrup to taste. Everyone loved them and wanted the recipe."
