I use to beg my mom to make these for me when I was growing up. Now I make them for my 2 daughters and they absolutely love them!

I will rate this a four because I made changes... but with my changes I would rate it a 5!! The changes I made were 2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp vanilla and half a bag of chocolate chips. So yummy! I made this in my belgian waffle maker and they turned our wonderful! I served this with Easy Whipped Cream from this site. I made the leftovers and froze them. I think I will try them for dessert with ice cream next! Read More

These were ok. I didn't think the chocolate flavor was strong enough and I agree with other reviewers that they had a very pancake like texture. Read More

These were fun for breakfast. As other reviewers stated but waffles don't really get crispy but stay chewy. We froze the extra and popped in the toaster for breakfast during the week and those got crispy though. I didn't bother with the sauce but using fresh fruit jam and syrup. If you are looking for something different give these a try. Read More

AWESOME!! This is a wonderful weekend treat. They were very moist. They texture is more like a pancake not crispy on the outside. I also noticed I had to use slightly less batter on the iron than I normally would or they overflowed. Great with strawberries and whipped cream.:) Read More

yum yum! I used 1/4 cup of cocoa powder, 2 tsp of baking powder, 1/2 tsp of baking soda, and oil instead of melted butter. I freeze them and then pop them into the toaster. Crunchy outside, soft inside with great chocolaty flavor. Read More

Holy shamolies! These things are GOOOOOOOOD! I made them with a friend for "Girls' Day Breakfast" and ooh-ooh-ooh. We topped with the hard sauce then added fresh sliced strawberries and cool-whip on top. What a treat! An easy recipe that looks and tastes so divine! Thanks for sharing. Read More

Kids loved, loved, loved these. I would consider these more of a dessert rather than breakfast, but let the kids pick what they wanted today. I added in some mini chocolate chips and 2 of my kids had these with peanut butter and called them Reeses waffles. Probably won't be something I will make them very often, but the recipe is very good. Read More
