In time for "National Waffle Day" and yes we had two of them not only in a year but in this one month this is the second recipe here on The Chocolate. Double importance for waffles... I wonder if it is a trend? This is a record number of recipes in a month for us because usually we are overwhelmed by products to try not recipes to share.
It was this easy: I used a mix, in this case Krusteaz buttermilk variety that we bought in bulk at Sam's Club -- we like our waffles. Added to that was, of course, water and oil, I use an omega oil in my kitchen. Except this time in place of water I used chocolate syrup.
I used Hershey's Lite Syrup so it had less calories and more of a cocoa flavor I think compared to the regular. The dark chocolate would also work but I had this and it has more of a watery consistency that I thought might be important to the mix. The trick is to use non-stick spray between waffles to keep it easily removable or they tend to stick in our waffle iron. I've had that thing for well over a decade now and we use it a few times each month.
See, you can see the syrup in the mix here in this great ceramic pitcher bowl I have that lets me pour directly into my waffle iron or muffin tins or whatever. It is a bowl I got for answering surveys on one of the many businesses I do that for. I'm highly opinionated so I love surveys and polls.
So now share your opinion, Sisters and Brothers, and tell me: Do you have a waffle iron? If yes, how often do you use it? Do you make chocolate waffles?
