Two things that go hand in hand are snow and hot cocoa. This past weekend we got quite a bit of snow so my husband decided to make hot cocoa waffles. They were extremely good, they beat my used to be favorite chocolate chip pancakes. You can use whatever hot cocoa mix you like! They were so good that I ate them as is, I didn't want to drown it out with syrup. They are perfect for a fun breakfast or even better served hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. The next time you go to make plain waffles from a box mix, try these instead.
- 1 c. oatmeal flour (ground whole oats)
- 1 c. whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 1/4 c. milk, warm
- 3/4 c. sweetened condensed milk (buy or recipe below)
- 1 c. white chocolate chips
- 5 Tbsp hot cocoa mix
Sweetened condensed milk
- 3/4 c. sugar
- 1/3 c. water
- 1/4 c. margarine
- 1 c. nonfat dry milk powder
- Heat sugar and water until sugar has dissolved. Add margarine. Stir until margarine is melted. Heat to a boil.
- Put nonfat dry milk powder into a blender or food processor. Process until smooth, while adding butter mixture.
- Cool, cover and refrigerate or use immediately.
- Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions.
- In a medium bowl whisk together the flours, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa mix and salt.
- In another bowl beat together eggs and then add the milk and sweetened condensed milk.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
- Ladle the recommended amount of batter onto the waffle iron. Close iron top and cook until golden brown on both sides and is easily removed from the iron. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve.
