Chocolate waffles (with or without strawberry hearts) are a breakfast treat that can easily pass for a dessert.
Chocolate Waffles
  • 1¾ cups flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 3 tsp sugar (optional)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup oatmeal, optional
  • 2 eggs
  • 1¼ cup buttermilk
  • ⅓ cup oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ - ½ cup chocolate chips
  • Strawberries, halved and trimmed like hearts
Whipped Cream
  • ½ pint of heavy whipping cream
  • ½ – 1 tsp vanilla, to taste
  • ½ Tbsp sugar, to taste
  1. Mix the dry ingredients.
  2. Beat in the eggs, buttermilk and oil.
  3. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Pour roughly 1 cup batter onto a lightly greased waffle iron that has been heated according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  5. Close the lid and cook the waffle.
  6. Garnish the cooked waffles with whipped cream and strawberry hearts.
Strawberry Hearts
  1. Slice the strawberries in half.
  2. Remove the stem portion by cutting out a "V" with the stem.
  3. Round it out to shape the top like the curves of a heart.
Whipped Cream
  1. Mix the ingredients together and beat on high using a hand-held mixer or a KitchenAid mixer with the whisk attachment. It will take several minutes for the liquid cream to transform into fluffy peaks.
  2. If you beat the whipping cream until it is too stiff you can add more cream and continue beating. This is also a good trick if you are using leftovers the next day. Leftover whipped cream often starts to separate and lose its form. Simply add more cream (if need be) and whip it again.
