Chocolate Waffle Cookies

I have been making these for a long time. Whenever I want something chocolate without heating up the oven and that only takes a few minutes I whip these up. My mom has the original recipe (It came from a Remenisce magizine). I know the ingredients and I just combine them all how I think they should go.

  • 1 square unsweetened chocolate (I have also used semi-sweet-just makes them sweeter)

  • 1/4 cup butter (I use light at room temp)

  • 6 TBS sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Heat up waffle iron. I also grease mine so they don't stick. While heating, melt the chocolate first (I put it in microwave and stir frequently). I then add the butter to chocolate and stir. Add egg, vanilla and sugar. Lastly add flour. It should not be a thick batter. Once the waffle iron is hot, I use a heaped up spoonful and push the batter onto the waffle iron with my finger (you could also pour from a measuring cup). I can get about 4 waffle cookies per batch (about 2 in. in width) but will differ depending on your waffle iron. It only takes about a minute or when you see steam starting to come out. They should be hard enough to easily remove with a fork or knive. Dust with powdered sugar and heat while hot. I usually eat the first batch before the next one comes out! Yield--about 16 2 in. waffle cookies.
