Brownie.... Waffles?

Yes, brownie waffles. I got excited when I thought about this the other night. So much so that at 8:00pm, I started throwing everything together to give em a try. While they weren't exactly what I was expecting, (a brownie that tastes just like brownie, but looks like a waffle) they were seriously yummy! You use a brownie batter, but since they're cooked on a waffle iron (well, DUH) they really have the waffle texture/taste.

     Which is still WAY yummy. Then, I thought to heat up a little bit of peanut butter and drizzle it over the brownie... errr... waffle... (broffle? waffnie?) Eh, you know what I'm talking about. I took a bite and it was soooo good. Buuuut, being one who never could quite leave "well enough" alone, I grabbed the (reduced sugar) strawberry jam and put a spoonful smack dab in the middle of that bad boy. Birds sang, rainbows appeared, the Heavens opened up and all was right with the world. Really! You're not buying it? Ok, ok, they were DELICIOUS, though and my kiddies went nuts for them. So give em a try! Especially with the peanut butter and jam.


 You will need:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted (I used light butter with no problem)
  • 1 cup sugar (I used 1/2 sugar, 1/2 Equal for baking)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  1. Heat up your waffle iron and spray with non stick spray
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together your melted butter, sugar and vanilla
  3. Add eggs, mix well. Add the flour, cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt and baking powder. Stir til mixed well.
  4. Pour some of the batter onto waffle iron, close lid and cook until it stops steaming, anywhere from 2-4 minutes.
  5. Remove from waffle iron and go at it again. Use up all that batter. Every. last. drop! You don't want to waste any, that would be a sin! lol
  6. Top with some peanut butter and jam/jelly. Take a big bite, sit back and see if all is not right in your world. At least for a moment. *smile*
