Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the ground nuts, flour, cocoa and baking powder; set aside. In a separate bowl, beat eggs on the high speed of an electric mixer, gradually add the sugar and mix until thick and yellow. Stir in the melted butter and vanilla. Gradually stir in the flour mixture, just mixing enough to combine.

  • Heat up the pizzelle iron until a drop of water dances on the surface, then slightly reduce heat. Drop 1 rounded tablespoon of batter for each cookie. Close the lid and bake for about 2 minutes, depending on your iron. Turn cookie out and trim before cooling on racks.

I used pecans instead of the walnuts to make these chocolate pizzelles. By melting the butter in a large pan the need for a bowl is eliminated! With or without the chocolate frosting glaze these are good! Read More

A group of us were giving a bridal shower at school and decided on a sundae bar. I used my pizzelle maker to create 4 delicious flavors of ice cream bowls made like waffle cones bowls creating 105 bowls. This review is for the Italian Pizzelles chocolate flavored. The batter for this held up very well when making the bowls. It was a thicker batter and held the ice cream best. I got 29 cookies from this recipe and it took 40 seconds per batch. The other recipes were: Pizzelles II Pizzelles III and a personal recipe from What s for dinner mom?. Read More

These came out great. I have a teflon pizzelle iron that produced perfect cookies. I lightly dusted them with a mixture of powdered sugar and cinnamon. Family loved them.:) Read More
