My name is Mrs. Brooke and I'm a waffleholic. Things are getting worse with my addiction now that I've tasted these. These are, quite literally, sinfully delicious; I had to fight to urge to use the Lord's name in vain when I tasted the first bite. (I thought it was funny...)
And what would a food post be without a gratuitous shot of one of my children covered in said food item? The waffles were a big hit with the girls, mostly because they got to stir the chocolate and peanut butter chips into the batter. And I put sprinkles on them. You can't beat that for a happy dinner.
So it isn't Wednesday...but really, any day can be waffleliciously wonderful--especially if there's chocolate involved.
Preheat waffle iron.
Whisk together in a large bowl:
- 1 cup flour
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa, sifted
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
Whisk together in another bowl:
- 1 1/4 cup milk
- 2 large egg yolks (save the whites)
- 4 Tbsp (1/2 stick) butter, melted
- 1 tsp vanilla
Pour the wet ingredient over the dry ingredients and gently whisk them together until combined. Stir in:
- 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
In another bowl, beat the two egg whites until peaks are stiff and then fold into the batter.
You need to really grease the waffle iron for each set of waffles that you cook. I found that it took less batter to make these, not even a full cup at a time on the iron. Pour it on the iron, smooth it out a bit and let it cook for about fifteen seconds before closing the lid. It takes my iron 8 minutes to cook a set of waffles. These don't get crisp, they're very floppy. And you're going to have to fish out abandoned chips from the iron every now and then.
I served them with butter and whipped cream. And sprinkles. Yum.
