Chocolate Waffles with Chocolate Chips

These were soooo delicious! The recipe is from Alton Brown's Good Eats show. I made them when the girls had some friends sleeping over. Chocolate Waffles plus Star Wars equals good times.

1 1/2 cups flour
3 TBS sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 whole eggs, beaten
2 ounces unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 tsp vanilla
16 ounces buttermilk, room temp. (I didn't have buttermilk so I used whole milk and they were still outstanding)
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Vegetable spray for waffle iron

Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions-and directly you'll be directed in the right direction!
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and baking soda. In another bowl beat together the eggs and melted butter and vanilla, and then add the buttermilk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir in the chocolate chips just until combined. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.
Ladle the recommended amount of waffle batter onto the center of the iron. Close the iron top and cook until the waffle is crispy on both sides and is easily removed from iron. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve.

We served them with maple syrup, but I'm dying to try this for, say, a FHE treat and put whip cream and extra choc chips on top!

Charlotte's mom made chocolate waffles for her birthday party once and I thought they were just regular waffles that had been burned. You know, the kind we saw every day at our house. Ha!

You mean the kind that had bits of the waffle iron in them because it was so old that it was peeling? Sometimes I find myself checking to see if big chunks of pepper are really just bits of waffle iron coating. Scarred for life...
