Waffle Iron Cookies

This is a great recipe for summertime because you don't have to turn on the oven to make these delicious chocolate cookies. This is one of the first things I ever made for Steve - and one of the few sweet treats that he enjoys. (I know, maybe I should have held out for someone who could more appreciate the greatness of my baking!)

2 squares unsweetened chocolate
1/2 C butter
2 eggs
3/4 C sugar
1 C flour
1 tsp vanilla
1 C chopped nuts (optional)

In a small bowl, melt together unsweetened chocolate and butter - let cool. In a medium bowl, beat eggs - add chocolate mixture and combine. Add sugar, flour, vanilla and nuts - combine. Bake in waffle iron for about 2 minutes - do not over cook. You can make the cookies as big or as little as you like, because they should cook evenly no matter how big they are.
I used my medium scoop and got about 18 good sized cookies. You could easily get 2 dozen small cookies.
  • Make sure your chocolate mixture is not too hot, or it will cook your eggs.

  • I usually burn the first batch because I'm never sure how to work the waffle iron correctly.

  • If these cookies are baked too long they get super crunchy. They should be crisp on the outside and cakelike in the middle.

  • In the photo they are glazed, but they are also great with chocolate frosting (I Like), dusted with powdered sugar or just plain (Steve).


  1. So, say I have one square unsweetened chocolate and on square semi-sweet? Should I try it anyway?

  2. Okay, I couldn't wait for a response. I needed a brownie and I needed one now. Very fast and delicious. Perfect for such chocolate emergencies!

  3. Lizzie and I made these today. They are very fast and an excellent quick chocolate fix. We made them with our pizelle maker and they turned out great. I agree with Steve...plain is very yummy.
