ince I already had commercially made pineapple ice cream topping in the fridge, I didn't make the topping listed, just added coconut to ours. Due to nut allergies, I subbed rice krispies for the nuts. They give a nutty flavor and crunch. I made Belgian waffles, and got 4 nice sized ones.

These waffles were awesome! My husband loved them! I am not a fan of flaked coconut, so I substituted 1/4 cup cream of coconut instead and they were perfect!
