Sweetheart Chocolate Waffles

Chocolate.  Waffles.  Oh, yeah!  When I first saw these in the recent “Chocolate Issue” of the Food Network Magazine, I thought how perfect they’d be, made up in my cute little heart waffle iron, for Valentine’s breakfast.  But then, if I waited, none of you would have the recipe in time.  So, I sucked it up and made them this morning.  How I sacrifice for this blog.  😉

No more trouble than any waffle, and not overly chocolatey or overly sweet; I’ll be making more of these!

  • 6 TBSP butter, melted
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 TBSP baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 TBSP sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chocolate syrup
  • toppings of your choice, such as powdered sugar, chocolate syrup, berries, …..!

Melt the butter and set aside to cool a bit.

Whisk the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together in a large bowl.

In a smaller bowl or large measuring cup (which I like for the pouring part!), whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla and melted butter together.

Whisk the egg mixture into the flour mixture.  The batter will be thick.

Heat a waffle iron, ladle batter in and cook until done.  These waffles smell uh-maze-ing while they cook!  It’s a bit tricky to see if they’re done or not, since they’re already brown, but they do get a little browner. 

Serve up topped however you like.  I loved the way the powdered sugar played against the crispy chocolatey waffles.  Mmmmmm-yummy!

Michael liked them like he likes any waffle–topped with a bit of butter melting in….but this is way prettier, don’t you think?

AND THEN!  I got this idea that the little hearts could be separated, and two of them could be the outside of a cute little ice cream sandwich, with hot fudge and whipped cream. 

Oh but these were yummy–the Sweetheart Sundae!  I toasted the waffles I made this morning in the toaster for perfect crispy warmness.  Yum-yum-yummy!

Have a sweet Valentine’s Day!
