Holidays are the perfect time to enjoy more decadent and special recipes. These chocolate chip waffles aren’t something I would make on a regular basis. However, Christmas is the perfect time to serve them up.
Then you have the delicious chocolate chips. Personally, I prefer the semi-sweet kind in this waffle, but feel free to change it out. You could use milk or dark chocolate if you prefer.
These chocolate chip waffles are best when you top them with fruit and whipped cream. Any fruit that pairs well with chocolate will work great. The chocolate in these waffles makes it completely unnecessary to use syrup. You can if you’d like. My husband likes to add syrup. Personally, I feel these waffles are sweet enough on their own. Any fresh berries or sliced bananas are the perfect addition to serve these waffles with.
- BAKING POWDER
- SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE CHIPS
- 1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
- 1 3/4 cup milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt

- In a small microwave bowl or measuring cup, add the butter and milk. Heat in the microwave for one minute and thirty seconds, or until the butter is melted. Whisk in the vanilla and set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat the eggs until fluffy. Slowly add the milk mixture while whisking together.
- Add in the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Mix together just until combined (small lumps are ok). Allow to rest for five minutes.
- Meanwhile, preheat your waffle iron.
- Fold in the chocolate chips. Add the batter to the hot waffle iron and cook according to your waffle maker’s directions. For my belgian waffle maker it takes 1 cup of batter.
