Brownie Waffles

Who loves waffles?  Raise your hand.  You can't see me but I've got both raised!! I love waffles. They are moist on the inside with a little crunch on the outside.  I like a traditional style waffle like my Buttermilk Waffles slathered with some peanut butter and drizzled with syrup or sprinkled with chocolate chips.  In the fall we break out the pumpkin and spices and have some Pumpkin Buttermilk Waffles with walnuts or hickory nuts and syrup.

 Recently I decided to give chocolate waffles a try. These brownie waffles are a little slice of heaven!  I tried some plain, some sprinkled with powdered sugar (just like my mom used to make our brownies) and with a peanut butter syrup drizzle.  They were all good and I couldn't really pick a favorite.  You could even serve these as a dessert with a slice of ice cream on top and some chocolate syrup drizzle on.

Brownie Waffles (makes 6 round flip style waffles)                        Printable Recipe

1/2 cup butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup all purpose flour (or 1-1/3 cup Jovial Einkorn flour)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (or milk chocolate or Andes Mints baking chips if you prefer)
Toppings ideas: powdered sugar, fruit, peanut butter, chocolate syrup, maple syrup.

Chop up chocolate and add it and butter to small glass dish. Melt in 15 second intervals until no lumps when stirred.
Add it to a medium bowl along with the sugar.  Whisk together and then add egg and vanilla.
 Mix flour, baking powder and salt together.  Add to wet ingredients. 
 Whisk just until dry is incorporated.
 Add milk and whisk just until smooth.

 Stir in chocolate chips. 
 Add batter to your hot waffle iron.  My round flip style waffle maker takes about 2/3 cups of batter.
 Cook until done. 
 Serve with a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
This one I stirred a little bit of peanut butter together with maple syrup and drizzled it on.  
To freeze:  Place on cooling rack and put in freezer until frozen.  Remove from cooling rack and put in freezer zip shut bag.  Re heat in microwave or in toaster for a quick breakfast!
