What to make for breakfast on Valentine's Day? Red velvet cupcakes would be divine -- but if that's a little too decadent for you, how about red velvet waffles! And you might as well add some protein with some cream cheese frosting and a handful of pecans, right? I think I'm in love with this breakfast.
Readers, I give you the red velvet waffle with cream cheese frosting. It's red and valentine-y, it's sweet, and it will love you on the 14th. Those of you who do not have waffle irons, make these red velvet pancakes and the frosting recipe below. The rest of you, fire up those irons!

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer. With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract.
Serve frosting on the side to dip into, or spread over waffles. For ultimate authenticity, sprinkle chopped pecans on your frosted waffles. Happy Valentine's Breakfast!
