Waffles…not just for breakfast anymore!

The more you get to know me, the more you will know I LOVE Williams-Sonoma.  Just purusing the catalog makes me drool!!  So you can imagine my response when a new catalog arrived last spring announcing the arrival of a brand-new All-Clad Waffle Iron, complete with new steam release technology.  It claimed to make the best tasting waffles ever!  I had to have it, so my loving husband got it for me for my birthday.

Guess what?  The claim was true! They are indeed the best waffles ever! They are thick and light, crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside!  There’s really nothing like them.

My favorite discovery is one that came with the recipe book included in the waffle iron box.  Chocolate waffles!  They are dreamy!  I mean, really, chocolate mixed with the perfect waffle…how can you go wrong? You can have them for a decadent breakfast or an impressive dessert. I’ve topped them with whipped cream and strawberries, cinnamon powdered sugar, and even ice cream.  They are such a treat!  You must try them. What would you top them with?

Here’s the recipe:

2 eggs

2 cups milk

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/2 cup sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp salt

2 oz. semisweet chocolate, chopped

4 Tbsp butter

Preheat your waffle iron.  In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla.  In another bowl mix together the flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and whisk until smooth.

In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the chocolate and butter.  Heat stirring often, until melted. (You can also melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave. Just stir it about every 30 seconds to make sure it doesn’t scorch). Whisk the chocolate mixture into the batter until no lumps remain. Cook in your waffle iron and enjoy with the toppings of your choice!
