Chocolate Waffles/Brownie Waffles

I tried this recipe for the first time today, and it was ok. The boys probably liked them more than me. They turned out a little thinner than I would have liked them. I have a recipe for "Brownie Waffles" that I usually make that I like better, but they take longer to make. I will post both recipes, and you can choose which one you want to try. :)

Chocolate Waffles

1/2 c. Bisquick baking mix
1 c. sugar
1/3 c. cocoa
3/4 c. water
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 eggs

Beat all ingredients with wire whisk or hand beater until almost smooth. Pour batter from cup or pitcher onto center of hot waffle iron. Bake until steaming stops. Remove waffle carefully. Serve with vanilla ice cream, sliced peaches, and raspberries or sliced strawberries, sweetened whipped cream, and chocolate-flavored syrup over waffles, or sprinkle with powdered sugar. Makes 6 servings.

Brownie Waffles
(This is my preferred recipe, it just takes longer. Not sure of the source - it's from my mom, and she's made them for years.)

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate pieces
¾ cup milk
½ cup butter or margarine
2 egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar
1 ½ cups flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
Ice cream (optional)


In a small saucepan over low heat, heat chocolate pieces, milk, and butter until chocolate pieces melt. Remove from heat; set aside.

Preheat waffle iron. In a large mixer bowl, beat egg yolks until thickened and lemon colored. Gradually beat in sugar. Add melted chocolate mixture, then flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.

In a small mixer bowl beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold into chocolate batter. Spoon on preheated waffle iron. Close lid and bake until crisp. Remove from waffle iron. Repeat until all batter is used. Top with your favorite ice cream. You could also sprinkle with powdered sugar.
