Fresh-made Chocolate Waffles are decadent, delicious and whip up in minutes!! They are the perfect start to your day, or a sweet dessert.
Chocolate Waffles are a sweet and surprising start to your day! They’re a fun variation of classic waffles, just like Cinnamon Roll Waffles and Red Velvet Waffles. Enjoy them for breakfast or dessert!
Chocolate For Breakfast
Breakfast is one of our favorite meals. We love it so much we often have breakfast for dinner! The kids love those days because we whip out some of our best-loved dishes.
They taste heavenly topped with a pile of fresh berries and maybe a side of whipped cream.
I love that the chocolate flavor of these waffles isn’t too overwhelming and rich, so they are still perfect for breakfast, but would also make a sweet dessert.
How to make chocolate waffles
PREP. Preheat waffle iron.
DRY INGREDIENTS. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar and cocoa in a large bowl.
WET INGREDIENTS. Stir in milk, eggs and butter and mix until smooth. Fold in chocolate chips.
COOK + SERVE! Scoop out almost 1 cups worth of batter and pour onto greased waffle iron. Cook for a few minutes, or until golden brown.
Tips + Toppings
- Don’t over mix. It’s ok if your waffle batter is a bit lumpy
- Use room temperature milk and eggs. Not only do they incorporate better with the other ingredients, but it helps the melted butter mix in more completely.
- Use melted butter or vegetable oil to brush on the waffle iron so the waffles don’t stick. I prefer that over cooking spray.
- Don’t lift the lid until it stops steaming.
- Keep waffles warm in a 200°F oven. Place them on a baking sheet in a single layer. Don’t stack them. They can keep warm for about 30 minutes before drying out.
Toppings: I thought these chocolate waffles tasted great with a few extra chocolate chips and some fresh berries. Here are a few more ideas that would be super delicious:
- Homemade Whipped Cream
- Maple Syrup
- Buttermilk Syrup
- Chocolate Syrup
- Strawberry Sauce
- Vanilla Ice Cream
- Chocolate Fudge Sauce
- Fresh Fruit
STORE. Whether you have leftovers or want to make these ahead of time you can store them in the refrigerator for two days, or freeze them in freezer bags for about 3 weeks.
To FREEZE. Place the cooked waffles on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and place it in the freeze. Once solid, transfer them to an airtight freezer safe container. The waffles will stay good for up to 4 months.
REHEAT. To reheat refrigerated or frozen waffles, preheat the oven to 250°F and bake for 10-15 minutes or until hot. You can also heat them up in a toaster or the microwave.
