Hear ye, hear ye: I am a complete waffle fanatic.
I love them. I mean, LOVE them.
Not only do we have waffles almost every Sunday for breakfast, but every Tuesday night as well. And do you want to know something? I never tire of them. Never.
My brother got the biggest kick (and disappointment) when for my birthday dinner this year I had… you guessed it: waffles. Why, when you can have anything, would you choose something that we have every week? was his opinion. True, but it really is my favorite meal. And that’s the point of birthdays isn’t it? To have your favorite meals?
So it should be no wonder that right now you are staring at a stack of chocolate waffles – with cookie dough, no less.
What can I say? It’s an illness? I was born with a waffle shaped stomach?
You choose, but either way here you have it: Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Waffles.
Another one of my food obsessions (I have a few…) is cookie dough. Give me a carton of cookie dough ice cream and I’ll be scanning to find the parts that look like they have lots of cookie dough pieces. Once I find them, you can bet I’m digging the scoop in. So what a better combination could you ask for? Two of my loves harmonizing together beautifully.
I’m not ashamed of it. Not at all. In fact, I encourage – no, I implore you to try them as well… you can thank me later.
I’m not sure how this, shall we call it inspiration, came about but I will tell you that a large part of it came from the blog, Deliciously Yum. She (Kathi) made these yummy looking chocolate cookies with cookie dough inside and said that the cookie dough did not bake with the cookies! So I figured I would try this with hopefully the same results in the waffles.
It’s hard to tell, but while the cookie dough bites may have baked a little, it’s not like your biting into cookies either. So I feel safe calling them cookie dough waffles.
Also, this ice cream. My favorite recipe. It’s so quick and easy; it’s no harder than making hot fudge sauce (you’ll be making that too) and is extremely yummy.
Plus, I’m celebrating a small victory in being a winner of an ice cream contest our local paper was running.
I hope you enjoy these recipes and I would appreciate any feedback – specifically on the waffles – so I can continue to perfect the recipe!
The lowdown: Mocha chocolate waffles which are made fun with the addition of chocolate chip cookie dough, make for a splendid dessert with little bites of happiness inside. If desired, make this super quick and easy ice cream recipe swirled with homemade hot fudge sauce to make for an awesome topping and amazing waffle experience!
