These chocolate waffles are the perfect indulgent breakfast. They are rich and delicious and full of chocolate flavor. We love waffles around here, but I’d never tried chocolate waffles before. I was brainstorming ideas for fun Valentine’s Day food and couldn’t get the idea of chocolate waffles out of my head. I ended up making these last weekend and told Mike we were celebrating Valentine’s Day a week early. 🙂 ( I’m pretty sure it’s a side effect of being a food blogger that you eat holiday food weeks early in order to have recipes ready to share on the blog!) We both loved these chocolate waffles, and the recipe made enough that we can re-heat them for another fun breakfast and enjoy them all over again. And definitely don’t skimp on the whipped cream and strawberries – they make the perfect topping. Enjoy!
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 3 whole eggs
- 2 ounces unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips
- In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. In a separate bowl whisk together the eggs, melted butter, and vanilla. Stir in the buttermilk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Let rest for 5 minutes.
- Preheat waffle iron and spray with non-stick spray. Cook waffles according to your waffle iron's directions. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200 degree F oven until ready to serve. For an extra treat, serve with lightly sweetened whipped cream and strawberries!

2 cups of buttermilk??? With only 11/2 cups of flour and the eggs and butter that just seems like too much liquid to me. I don’t want to do it until I am sure. I made a recipe the other week and it said cook 400 degrees. I thought that was too high and did 375. It was still too hot. Come to find out it should have been 350. )-:
These do look yummy!! My husband loves chocolate.
Yes, it is correct – don’t forget there is also 1/2 cup of cocoa powder in there. My normal buttermilk waffle recipe uses 2 cups of buttermilk for 2 cups of flour, which is pretty similar to this ratio. If you try it, let me know how it turns out! 🙂
Oooh, Megan these look so yummy! I laughed when you mentioned making holiday foods early – that’s what I felt like I did with these red velvet brownies last week (though I was supposed to bring a treat for our ski trip, so it was a good excuse 🙂 ). Oh no, does this mean I’m turning into a food blogger?!
How many waffles did this make for you and Mike? I clicked on the food network link and it says it makes 6 (8 inch) waffles. Do you think if I do 1/3 of a batch (for the hubby and I) that it will make enough for 2 people?
I don’t remember how many, but I think 1/3 should be enough for 2 people. It made more than I expected. We had more than enough for 2 breakfasts, and Mike ate a lot of waffles 😉 I hope you like them!
These waffles look decadent 🙂 they would definitely put a smile on my face in the morning!
Mmm, my husband loves chocolate for breakfast. I need to make these for him!
