I am not a fan of Waffles, at least not the traditional ones. Give me some frozen Eggo's and I am good to go! I don't even own a waffle iron/pan. So, when I opened up one of my magazines and saw a recipe for chocolate waffle cookies..., i'm not for sure what I was thinking! I'm not even a big fan of chocolate, but I called my mother in-law, because if there's something that I need they will either have or find it for me. A waffle iron was something I knew that she had. (She had made the girls waffles for breakfast several times.)
The recipe seemed like something quick, easy and fun for all of us to do together. Plus, in the end, there would be a sweet treat for the girls.
Its a rare event for us all to be home at the same time. Especially when there is time to spare! So, i've really been trying to take advantage of those moments.
The cooking time was one minute! The clean up was just as quick.
The cookies were NOT like regular cookies, they were more cakey, and a bit dry. They weren't really a bad cookie (if there is such a thing), but they were definitely not a Tollhouse. They kind of reminded me of something other than a cookie, or a waffle. I don't think it takes too much imagination to figure out what i'm talking about. (Man, i am immature!)
Regardless of the looks, the girls seemed to really enjoy making them.
Once we put some frosting on them...,
...along with some festive sprinkles they looked a little closer to being edible. Im not 100%, but I am pretty for sure that if you add frosting and sprinkles to just about anything..., kids will eat it.
I must have poop on my mind.., maybe because of all of the dipes I change, but I think the frosting looks like poo too.
I think over all it took forty-five minutes to complete. However, Justin did pre-measure all of the ingredients and made the frosting ahead of time, so it would be that much more quick and easy.
I would love to hear easy and fun things you may be doing or have done.I am always trying to find new things that we can do as a family. Especially when that 'something' means using stuff that we already have around the house!
1/2 C. melted butter
2/3 C. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 C. flour
1/4 C. cocoa
1/2 tsp. salt
1. Mix the wet ingredients followed by the dry. The batter will be thick (may take a minute to set up).
2. drop spoonfuls of batter onto iron. Close, and let cook for about a minute.
3. They are quick to cool. Frost afterward. I used a basic Butter Cream frosting recipe.
