Chocolate Chip Waffles ~ Growing Up Gabel

Chocolate Chip Waffles ~ Growing Up Gabel

We eat chocolate chip pancakes at least once a week for breakfast.  My kids would gladly eat them every single morning, if I let them.  The other morning I decided to try a new waffle recipe out and while I was at it, I threw in a handful or two of mini chocolate chips. I was a little worried that the chocolate would melt all over my waffle maker, but they didn't! So now, we can have chocolate chip waffles much to the delight of my children.

  4. I love waffle plain, but the grand kids would love this. Crispy and chewy a great combination! Thanks for sharing your inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!

  7. These look amazing, unfortunately I gave away my waffle maker because I would get really pissy every time I made waffles so I had to quit 🙂 I think maybe the waffle maker was too small but I got really tired of standing to make them for an hour or so just to have everyone else sit there and eat without me. Maybe now that I’m the only one here I should try them again. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    • OMW! LOL I’m so sorry to hear that but it really made me chuckle. 🙂 My waffle maker is a large, Belgian style so it makes 4 waffles at a time. I usually just do 2-3 batches in the iron and I’m done. Of course, when the kids are older, that may require more time!

  8. Sounds like tomorrow’s breakfast to me!
    Hello, new follower here! I would love to have you link up with my Clever Chicks Blog Hop this week!
