Very easy to make, not too sweet and full of chocolate decadence! These Double Chocolate Waffles a la Mode are the perfect breakfast for any occasion.
This weekend my oldest son and I decided to start the valentine’s celebration a little early. Since valentine’s day is on a Tuesday this year, we made a special breakfast during the weekend for all to enjoy.
We wanted to do something with chocolate and berries and special enough that would allow ice cream to be a part of breakfast! In other words, we wanted to give my youngest child the breakfast of his dreams! All his favorite foods on one plate! I’m glad to say we succeeded!!
Double Chocolate Waffles a la Mode
These waffles are actually very easy to make and they take no time to put together. The batter has both cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Use good quality cocoa for best results.
One of the things we like about these Double Chocolate Waffles a la Mode is that they are not extremely sweet so you can actually go all out with the toppings. We served them dusted with confectioner’s sugar, topped with vanilla ice cream (of course), drizzled with chocolate sauce, topped with fresh berries and some homemade whipped cream. It was truly perfect!
- In the recipe, you will be instructed to mix all the wet ingredients together in a bowl and all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Then they get mixed to form a batter. After that, you will whip egg whites into soft peaks. It is important that when you add them into the batter you incorporate them gently. You want to keep the fluffiness of the whites!
My favorite oldest child in the photo above, did an excellent job whisking those egg whites (feel free to use an electric mixer). I just thought it would be fun to make him work extra hard – he he!
