Chocolate Chip Chocolate Waffles with Peanut Butter Glaze

Nicole and I decided to start trying out a new waffle recipe every other week.  Someday we want to open a waffle shop together (I should give Monica some credit here, too.  She is going to be our restaraunt cleaner.)  When I told my mom we were going to do this project, she immediately said "Are you going to make dad's chocolate waffles?"  I don't think that my dad actually has any chocolate waffles that he could really call his own, but there is a legend in our family, that when Mom had a baby (maybe Nicole?) and Dad was in charge for a couple of days, he made us all chocolate waffles for dinner.  And I don't think we liked them.  It is joked about quite often.  So, I went ahead and started out our Waffle Project with some chocolate waffles.  I found a recipe for Chocolate pancakes, adapted them for waffles and doctored them up a bit with more chocolate.  The peanut butter glaze I found on, and is incredibly easy and yummy.  The waffles (er, pancakes) recipe was from a website that I now can't find and so I can't give (whoever they were) credit.  And it actually called for bananas, which I added, but Dustin and I thought they would be better without.  If you want to add those in, go ahead!  It was two mashed bananas, folded in just before cooking.  Otherwise, enjoy these chocolate waffles, dedicated to our Dear Ol' Dad.  

Chocolate Chip Chocolate Waffles
adapted by: Carolyn

1 c. white flour
1 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. sugar
2/3 c. cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. milk
2 eggs
1/2 c. oil
1/2 c. mini chocolate chips

Peanut Butter Glaze
2/3 c. powdered sugar
4 tsp. water
1 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter

For the waffles, in a large bowl, stir together all the dry ingredients.  Add the eggs, milk and oil and mix it well.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Cook in your waffle iron, adding a couple more minutes than your waffles normally take.  I checked mine after the normal time and they usually needed a minute more.  Make sure and spray your waffle iron in between every couple of rounds of waffles.  The chocolate chips make it stick a little more than usual.  Also, be sure to stir the batter every time before pouring it on the iron to get the chocolate chips off of the bottom. 

For the glaze, in a small bowl, add all the ingredients and stir it until it is smooth and creamy.  And that's all.


  1. Yummy. Did you have these as dessert waffles then? No shame if they were breakfast waffles though:)

  2. The legend is true. And it was at Nicole's birth. We mocked Dad's cooking for years, but I think it was a pretty smart move on his part- we boycotted his cooking for the rest of our childhood. Maybe I'll give it a try...

  3. Belgian waffle irons provide deep pockets to catch the butter and syrup. There is nothing like a warm, buttery waffle swimming in syrup.

  4. I'm pretty sure it was at Monica's birth, but may have been at Carolyn's. I know it was in Richfield, anyway. I think I can even recall exactly how they tasted. He may have tried again at Nicole's birth, though :)

  5. i love the legend! i think it is so funny.
