I am not really such a huge chocolate fan. But let me tell you...these waffles are good!
Sift the dry ingredients...
Then combine with the wet ingredients. Ladle about a cup of the batter onto a pre heated waffle maker and spread the batter using an offset spatula. Close the lid and let the steam fill your senses with the delicious scent of fresh chocolate! Repeat with the remaining batter.
Here is what the final product looks like.
I think I want one now.
Lucas loved the waffles. Could you tell? He had the melted chocolate chips all over his face! Too cute!
Ghirardelli Chocolate Waffles
(Taken form the Ghirardelli Website)Yield: 6 servings
1 1/2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 cup Unsweetened Cocoa
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 tablespoons granulated white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs, separated
4 tablespoons canola oil
2 cups whole milk
Preheat waffle iron. Sift the flour, cocoa, and baking powder into a bowl. Add the sugar and salt and whisk to thoroughly mix. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg yolks, and oil. Add to the flour and whisk gently until just combined.
In clean, dry bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric beater at medium speed until they form soft peaks. Fold into the batter and mix in the chocolate chips.
Ladle one-third of the batter onto the center of the waffle iron. Close the top and cook until the waffle is crispy on both sides. About 2-3 minutes.
Drizzle with syrup if desired. Serve immediately.
This how I plated them for brunch.
