Take raisins and cover with rum for 1 day or at least overnight. Set aside.

Separately, beat the heavy cream until it thickens, but does not become whipped cream yet. Add milk, eggnog, and rum.
4
In a separate bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, and baking powder. Toss with a fork until combined.
5
Alternately add the egg mixture and milk mixture to the flour mixture, beating as you go. Continue until all is added and well combined.
6
Add rum raisins and jimmies (sprinkles). Stir well.
7
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks are formed. Fold into batter.
8
Preheat your waffle iron. Spray only the first time with non-stick spray. Follow your particular waffle iron instructions.
9
Serve with syrup, whipped cream, and sprinkles.

If making the buttered rum syrup, combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and cook down until a syrupy consistency. Serve warm.
