Chocolate Cherry Waffle

This recipe is adapted from one of Prevention's most touted dishes. And why not? Who can say no to chocolate for breakfast? When I first made this I thought the cherries needed a little help to first, brighten the flavor and second, to prevent the waffle from getting soggy. Now I like to thicken the sauce and add just a touch of maple syrup but you can easily omit those if you want to hold true to the slightly leaner original recipe. Here's how I do it: Toast one Van's Lite Totally Natural Waffle. In the meantime place 1/2 cup of Cascadian Farms Frozen Dark Pitted Cherries in a small saucepan with a tablespoon of water, over medium heat. As the cherries start to defrost and release their liquid, add 1/4 cup of Smucker's Sugar Free Apricot or Peach Preserves. Stir frequently until the cherries are warmed through and the sauce thickens considerably. Slightly cool the waffle, then top with the cherries, 1/4 cup of Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips and 2 Tablespoons Pure Maple Syrup. Have a sweet day!
