Chocolate Mickey Mouse Waffles

The boys received a Mickey Mouse waffle maker for Easter from their Grandma, or “Emma” as they call her. I must admit I think I was more excited to get it than the boys, but they really love helping me in the kitchen and we’ve had a lot of fun using it so far.

The waffle maker’s instruction manual includes some waffle recipes I couldn’t wait to try. The original Buttermilk Waffle recipe is delicious but the Chocolate Waffles are to die for!

They are way too rich for everyday, and the instruction manual suggests them to be eaten with ice cream and toppings as a treat, but around here we eat chocolate for breakfast. I just throw some fresh cut up fruit on it to make it look healthier. ūüėČ

Because everyone deserves a treat in the morning every now and then.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 Tbs unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract

 

Directions:

Step One: Gather all your ingredients and your Mickey Mouse waffle maker. We like to use Nestle Toll House Cocoa for our chocolate waffles. Plug in your waffle maker to preheat it.

Step 2: Combine all your dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. This includes flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cocoa.

(If you’ve got little helpers like me, try to get as many ingredients in the bowl as possible.)

Step 3: Gently stir the dry ingredients together.

Step 4: Now add the eggs, buttermilk and vanilla and whisk until consistent.  Then add the butter gradually as you continue whisking. Whisk until smooth. 

Step 5: Be sure to lightly grease your waffle maker first. Then add about 1/2 cup of the waffle mixture to the waffle maker and close the lid. Allow to cook between 2-4 minutes. I usually set my timer for 3 minutes to be on the safer side. 

Step 6: Enjoy your delicious chocolate waffles. I added some of our fresh strawberries that we picked at Hann Farms earlier this week. 

This recipe typically makes 6 Mickey waffles.
