A Festive Valentine’s Day Breakfast

Who wouldn’t love to wake up to some delicious pink waffles? These pink velvet waffles are easy, they’re festive, and they’re super delicious, too! They’re crisp on the edges, tender in the middle, and have the perfect buttery waffle flavor.

I started with my favorite buttermilk waffle recipe, made a few little tweaks, and then made them extra festive with a little pink food coloring. We don’t use a lot of food coloring at our house, but I make an exception for holiday treats. It’s only a few times a year, and sometimes it’s fun to turn your food pretty colors, right? If you’re not a fan of food coloring, you could definitely leave it out. The waffles will taste just as delicious, but they may not be as cute. 🙂

How to Make Pink Velvet Waffles

I topped my waffles with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and fresh berries, and it was definitely a good choice! The sky is the limit as far as toppings go, though… I’m sure they’d be delicious with any kind of syrup or fresh fruit. These waffles are definitely going to be part of my family’s Valentine’s Day tradition, and I hope you’ll try them too!
