Chocolate Waffle Cookies

I was going to share this recipe over the weekend, but a horrible thing happened to my laptop. The "I" key broke off. That really makes typing words correctly more than a challenge. I will do my best to get this typed out correctly. The "I" still works as long as you press down really super firmly... 
maybe I should try a hammer?

I was going to let this recipe hang in limbo while I get things fixed, but my mom is going a little nuts waiting for it! That's what I get for putting a teaser picture online ahead of time!

These cookies are awesome! Couple things though... Tip Number One, They are definitely best on the day you make them. Even though I stored them well, on day two they really lost their awesomeness. Tip Number Two on making these is to make them when you aren't short on time or patience. It took a gentle hand and some patience to get them out of the iron, not something I would be good at when in a hurry! Also, my waffle iron is a Belgian Waffle Maker, so if you have a different type of iron, your timing will be different! You may want to use less batter, also.

Chocolate Waffle Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
Powdered Sugar

Preheat waffle iron. In large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla, mixing until light and fluffy. Blend in the melted chocolate. Add flour, mixing until completely incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop 2 tablespoons of batter in each section of waffle iron (my iron has 4 squares). Bake for 4 minutes*** Carefully lift cookie out and cool on wire rack. After cookie has cooled, dust with powdered sugar.

***Note**** I used a Belgian Waffle Maker for these cookies. If you are not using Belgian style, I suggest using less batter, and decreasing your baking time.

  1. You mentioned you are going to Hilton Head - is that the island just off South Carolina - I googled it and it looks like a great place! Cheers

  2. Ooooh these look delicious! I have bad luck with waffle makers, but if I get another one in the future I will have to try these out. Sorry about your "i" key! That has to be so frustrating.

  7. excellent--i hate when appliances and utensils only serve one function. :)

  8. These look perfect Kris! I tried making waffle cookies before and was met with total disaster! I'm not sure what went wrong. Maybe I was just low on patience on that day! With these, I wouldn't have to worry about day 2. They'd be gone within 30 minutes on day 1! Hope your computer woes get straightened out! : )

  9. I remember my mom making these at Christmas time. She would drizzle chocolate frosting over them when they were still warm. Thanks for sharing the recipe! I'll have to make some this weekend for my kids. :)

  10. I really need to get a waffle iron…these cookies look amazing! :)

  11. I've made these awesome cookies since my kids were little...over 30 years. They are definitely a 'fun' cookie. I like adding a bit of chocolate frosting too. Thanks a million for sharing with us at Weekend Potluck...keep 'em coming, please. And have a wonderful weekend ahead.
