To make the pearl sugar put 300 grams of sugar in to a pot and turn the heat on, add around 2 tablespoons of water and stir the mixture so it crysterlises. The sugar should stick together in lumps, however if you get a smooth mixture turning to caramel add a little more water and try again. The pieces should be moderatly sized with a few smaller and bigger bits like below. The sugar should be slightly tainted golden but not fully caramelised.

Hey - thanks for the help with my pearl sugar problem! I live in Belgium, but have friends in America that want to make these waffles - and sending bags of sugar gets expensive! But you know, you could have just ran a search for Liege Waffles (or "Gaufres de Liège") to make your quest a lot easier (for the recipe, not for the sugar!). But anyway, thanks again and great work!
