Summer is knocking on our doors (Right?!), which means flowers, fresh fruits and veggies, glorious sunshine! …And heat. Lots of heat.
Hot summer days make it miserable to bake and be in the kitchen. So what’s a chocoholic to do when the hankering for a cookie hits with a vengeance?
Fire up the waffle iron.
This is a chocolate cookie you make in the waffle iron! No heating up the oven, which means your house stays cooler and you satisfy your cookie cravings.
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup flour
- 3 TBSP cocoa
- 1 stick butter, melted
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Mix ingredients with a spoon.
- Dish small portion into waffle iron. (About an 1/8 of a cup or a small cookie scoop.)
- Cook until done.
- Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
The cookies come out soft, and then they harden a little after a few minutes. If you bake until they’re hard, they’ll be burned! Also, don’t fill the whole waffle iron with dough batter. You’ll just have a giant chocolate waffle. Like that’s a bad thing. 😉
This is the easiest cookie recipe you’ll ever find. You have cookies in five minutes flat.
And really, think of all the ways you could jazz up this recipe. Add chocolate chips or nuts to the batter. Drizzle with caramel.
Oooooh, add chocolate chips, drizzle with caramel and then top with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Mmm!
Yes. Let’s do that.
I gotta go. You know, to go heat up some caramel.
Do you know someone who needs to know they can make cookies in the waffle iron?
