Would You Like Chocolate With That? ~ Brownie Waffle Cookies

You made it to the end of the week!  Well almost.  That deserves chocolate I say!  So glad it's Chocolate Friday!

This recipe actually didn't go according to plan, but it was still yummy and I posted it anyway!  Who says you need an oven to make cookies?  You can make cookies on your waffle iron!  Really!  Let me just say that it does not work right on a Belgian waffle iron which is what I have.  You need to put lots of batter just to make it look OK and even then it doesn't look right and will only make a dozen or so large cookies - still yummy though!  You really do need a standard waffle iron for this.  This recipe came from my Chocolate Fantasies cookbook.

Brownie Waffle Cookies

1/3 cup shortening (I used butter instead)
1 (1-oz) square unsweetened chocolate
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup finely chopped pecans, divided (I left these out 'cause my son doesn't like nuts in things)

Combine shortening and chocolate in heavy saucepan.  Place over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted; cool.  Combine egg, sugar, milk, and vanilla in a bowl.  Stir in chocolate mixture.

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add to chocolate mixture.  Add 2/3 cup pecans, stirring well.

Preheat waffle iron at medium heat.  Drop batter by level tablespoonfuls onto iron, about 2 inches apart.  Sprinkle with remaining 1/3 cup pecans.  Close iron, and bake about 3 minutes or until done.  Remove to wire racks to cool completely.  Yield: 2 dozen
Doesn't that sound like fun?  Now if you make this on a *normal* waffle iron like you're supposed to, will you send me a pic so I know what they're really supposed to look like?  :)

Now - bring me your chocolate posts.  Link them up below.  Please??  Pretty please??  Chocolate is always better when it's shared!  Please remember to leave the link to your post rather than your blog so others can still find it later.  And I am only accepting links to posts that have something to do with chocolate and are family-friendly.  Anything else will be deleted.  Thanks!!

I'm linking this up to the Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap!  And linking to Tasty Tuesday at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam - go check out all the recipes!

Have a cheerful Chocolate Friday!

P.S.  This has nothing whatsoever to do with chocolate, but I'm having a Progresso Soup giveaway on my other blog right now!


  1. What a fun cookie to make. I only have a Belgium Waffle maker too..

  2. How neat! Like you, I only have a Belgian-waffle maker. Your cookies still turned out looking pretty, though, especially on a square plate.

  3. I'm totally going to make these. How fun!

  4. I did this a while back, but I just used a mix. It was a really fun idea and worked out pretty well - mine were just way too huge to be called cookies!

  5. What a creative recipe!!! I love this! :)

  6. That looks amazing!! I love the idea of a waffle brownie!!

  7. Those look yummy, but we only have a Belgian waffle iron too! lol
    Sometimes we make regular Belgian waffles, add chocolate chips, and top them with powdered sugar. Yum!

  8. I'm here my friend. I'm here! LOL! I've been gone ALL day and just got back.
    I'm so glad I don't have a waffle maker! LOL!
    You are making this chocolate thing hard on me.
    I remembered to finally link up the cookie recipe. Aren't you proud of me. I was just a week late.

    Big better late than never is always okay with chocolate size hugs to you!

  9. These sound SO good. Will definitely have to try. :)
