What is better than a thick, warm, waffle? How about a thick, warm, chocolate waffle! So delicious and decadent. Chocolate waffles make a perfect dessert treat with some ice cream, but today they were a special breakfast treat for my son. I thought I had some strawberries in the house to top them with to make it seem somewhat healthy, but I’ll just have to get some fruit into him later.
Waffles might seem like a difficult thing to make, but they are actually quite easy. The only reason I don’t make them more often is because I have to go get the waffle maker from “down cellah” as us Bostonians say.
So let’s make waffles!
1 1/2 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
4 tbsp. butter, melted
mini chocolate chips, optional
Sift together the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. As I always say, make sure to sift when using cocoa powder because it really makes a difference.
Whisk in the milk, eggs, and melted butter until smooth.
I added a few mini chocolate chips because that’s how I roll. Honestly, when are chocolate chips ever a bad thing? Right?
Spray your waffle iron with cooking spray and heat per the manufacturer’s instructions.
Once heated, ladle the batter into the iron and let cook for about 4 minutes. I used a fork to remove them.
I spread the batter out a little more for my second batch.
Serve warm with fruit, ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream, or whatever you like. Yum, yum, yum!!
