True Luv

I have a new love in my life.  Don't tell my husband.

That love was discovered in Utah as we journeyed across the country this past summer.  His name is Waffle Luv and he is a food truck, turned brick and mortar joint that creates something out of this world.

Waffle Luv makes authentic Belgium Liege waffles and serves them up piping hot with your choice of Nutella or Biscoff, whipped cream and strawberries.  I will never be able to eat a Bisquick brick again.  Liege waffles cause those little audible sound effects to escape your lips when you eat each and every bite.  

I hated to part ways with Waffle Luv.  Distance, however, does make the heart grow fonder.  I scoured the internet, studied the variations of the recipes and found a way to bring that Luv into our home.

This recipe is not for the culinary weak.  You really have to want them.  It is a long two day process, but true Luv is worth it!

The key ingredient that makes them so incredible:

Pearl Sugar.

Those little lumps of sweetness caramelize in your Belgium waffle maker and form a sweet sugary crust of perfection to counterbalance the inner fluffiness.

I had made them this past fall and finally got the energy to do it again.  Some Liege Luv for our family's New Year's Eve celebration was the perfect way to end 2014.

My topping of choice:

Crunchy Biscoff.  

I am a pretty loyal Nutella gal, but on top of a hot Liege waffle, it is crunchy Biscoff all the way baby.  Add to that layer crunchy Biscoff a healthy dollop of whipped cream and a few spoonfuls of ripe strawberries - oh, holy heaven.

My family was all feeling the Luv! It was the perfect way to end the year.  A belly so stuffed that I don't want to eat for a week will surely give me a good start to my healthy eating resolutions of 2015. bleh.

Wanna bite?

Since I am all about sharing the LUV, you can find the recipe I used here.
