I made this recipe for my Momma on Mother's Day last year! She is my best friend and my cooking mentor so I know she's gonna love this Southern brunch :) These chocolate waffles are rich and moist and the sweet cream cheese glaze and crunchy pecan topping makes them a decadent and delicious meal that any mother would love!
