Niece S likes waffle so I thought I might as well bring my iron back so I can make some waffles for her and my children. I decided on a chocholate waffle because niece S likes the plain waffle with chocolate fillings. As I do not want to lug back my whole kitchen, I prepared the dry mix at home and packed them into containers.
Brother M was at home when I made these and he ate 3 waffles loaded with butter! That was his lunch by the way.
My parents didn't quite like this as they find it too bitter. My children ate 1 waffle each :) As for niece S, she ate none. She doesn't like chocolate waffles, she only likes plain with chocolate fillings :(
Original recipe yields 6 waffles but if you are using Bluesky like me, you get more waffles. I can't remember exactly how many but I think there should be 8 waffles.
