I’m a little in love with my waffle maker. We have been making all sorts of waffles over the past couple of months, sweet and savoury. I felt it was about time one of our favourites was shared with you, triple chocolate waffles.
This triple chocolate waffles recipe comes in perfect timing for Easter. No crosses, no eggs, just purely delightful chocolate. Not just one kind of chocolate either. These triple chocolate waffles have white, milk and dark chocolate chips incorporated in to the batter. Plus there is a nice dose of cocoa powder thrown in.
Of course it doesn’t have to be Easter to enjoy them. They are perfect any time. The chocolate chips melt and create little pockets of melted goodness throughout the waffles.
Some chocolate will escape and melt on the waffle maker during cooking. The white chocolate caramelises quite nicely when it escapes. I can personally vouch for this as I meticulously cleaned the splodges from the waffle maker between batches and nibbled on them once cooled.
The triple chocolate waffles were simply served with ice cream. You could dish them up with whipped cream or fresh berries.

If you are faced with left over triple chocolate waffles, which I highly doubt, they freeze brilliantly. To warm them up again and regain their crispness, simply pop them in a toaster. They won’t need long, so keep an eye on them.
These guys definitely are a great addition to a lazy weekend breakfast or brunch. I hope you enjoy them.
