Liege Waffles

I've been drooling to make these Liege Waffles for the longest time, and finally ordered the authentic Belgium Pearl Sugar.  OMG, I will never go back to any other waffle! They were invented by the chef of the prince-bishop of Liège in the 18th century as an adaptation of brioche bread dough, resulting in a richer, denser, sweeter, and chewier waffle. When baked, chunks of pearl sugar partially melt on the inside of the waffle, and caramelize on the outside.
