so long diet. {a DELISH waffle recipe}

Remember way back when {on Monday} when I told you we were having a diet overhaul in our house? 

Whelp, that ALL went out the window this morning when my lovely stepmama served up these most DELICIOUS waffles. 
I should say that I'm a sucker for waffles and for ALL THINGS red velvet ... So there was absolutely ZERO willpower when it came to these divine culinary creations. 

Red Velvet Waffles
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 C. vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 C. water
- 3 C. waffle mix
- 1/4 C. cocoa powder
- 1/2 bottle red food coloring
- 3 oz. cream cheese
- 3 Tbs. powdered sugar
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla
- 3 Tbs. milk
- 1/2 C. toasted pecans

- Combine eggs, oil, water and waffle mix and mix well. Add in cocoa powder and blend. Add red food coloring. 
- Cook waffles in a preheated waffle maker. 
- While waffles cook, mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and milk with a handheld electric mixer. Pour glaze into a saucepan and heat over low-medium heat, stirring frequently. 
- Serve waffles with cream cheese glaze and toasted pecans. 

And be happy for the REST OF THE DAY! I know I will be! :) 

Happy Saturday Y'all!

They also suggest to use cooking spray on the non-stick grills before each time you are using the unit. This will help prevent your waffle to stick on the plates giving you a hard time to take them off so they would not look as good as they should. So it is important.
