We usually have regular waffles on Sunday morning but a friend posted a recipe for Brownie Waffles on her Facebook page the other day and we HAD to try them (she is a well known chocolate lover so we knew we could count on her for a super recipe). The recipe makes a lot so it was the perfect thing to share.
Cashel's first time using the microwave!
Separating the eggs, this is usually Viv's job but she was still sleeping.
Well, speak of the devil...Viv is up!
Pouring in the melted chocolate.
A minor disagreement over who gets to lick the chocolate bowl.
Brownie batter in the waffle maker...Genius!
OH MY! Topped with Butterfingers's ice cream. Can we ever go back to regular waffles again. A little hot fudge on top would have been divine but we didn't have any....there is always next time!
Coralee's Brownie Waffles
1 12-oz pkg chocolate chips
1 1/2 c milk
1 c butter/margarine
...4 egg yolks, 4 egg whites
2/3 c sugar
3 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c nuts, opt (I never add them due to allergies)
Melt chocolate chips, milk and butter. I microwave for about 2 min and stir, then about 30 seconds more until they're melted. It shouldn't be hot, just melted. Beat egg yolks until lemon colored and add to not-hot chocolate mix (they will cook if it's too hot). Whisk together sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Blend chocolate mix and dry mix together. Finally, whip egg whites until stiff and fold into batter. This should be done right before cooking so if I'm going to wait to cook, I will keep them separate until I'm ready. Heat your waffle maker and cook like regular waffles. We use both Belgian and regular waffle irons. Serve with fruit, whipped cream and/or ice cream. This is the doubled recipe; we usually make this and freeze any leftovers if you're lucky enough to have them. Leftovers reheat to perfection by just toasting them in your toaster. Enjoy!
