Chocolate Waffles

Breakfast and brunch are coveted times in our home. We are all big fans of the meal and are constantly searching for new recipes to add to our rotation! 

One morning, while battling an epic sweet tooth, we decided to whip up a chocolate waffle. 

All I have to say is HOLY SMOKES this waffle is tasty. Crisp on the outside, soft and chewy in the center… It is the things dreams are made of. 

The Best Chocolate Waffle Recipe

Chocolate Waffle Ingredients

Ingredients to make chocolate waffles:

  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Granulated sugar
  • Cocoa powder
  • Vanilla extract
  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Butter

I suggest using quality ingredients for this recipe. The rich flavor comes from the cocoa and is enhanced with the remaining ingredients. So if you have to pick only one to splurge on, make it the cocoa powder!

Want to make these into double chocolate waffles? Stir in one cup of mini chocolate chips into the batter before cooking!
