Start by making the waffle batter…
Ladle the batter into a preheated waffle iron and cook them until of desired crispness…
While the waffles are cooking, prepared the chocolate whipped cream by simply beating the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form and then adding the chocolate syrup until well combined. Pretty sweet stuff to make these waffles extra special…
That’s all there is to it! Now you’re ready to serve them to somebody special…
Just scoop some chocolate whipped cream onto the crispy strawberry waffles and drizzle with a little chocolate syrup, if your heart so desires…
