Sometimes, I make way too many treats for one day. I had leftover ganache and chocolate cover fruit. So the next day, when trying to decide what to make for breakfast, I decided to make chocolate waffles. It turned out so much better than I'd hoped.
No need for syrup. Just sprinkle a bit of powdered sugar and top with chocolate covered fruit!
4 tbsp chocolate ganache (see recipe below)
1 1/2 cups waffle mix (Bisquick or see recipe below)
1 large egg
Milk (about 3/4 cup)
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp sugar
Berries (I used chocolate covered strawberries and raspberries)
Preheat the waffle iron. In a large microwaveable bowl, warm the ganache (mine was refrigerated). Add the waffle mix, sugar, egg, oil, and stir enough milk until the batter is cake-like batter consistency.
Fill the waffle iron with batter and cook until done.
Top with fruit and sprinkle powdered sugar. Enjoy!
Makes 6 waffles
The ratio for ganache is 1 cup heavy cream to 8 oz. chocolate chips. I like dark chocolate so I use Ghirardelli 60% cacao chips.
Warm the cream in the microwave for about a minute in the microwave. Keep an eye so that it doesn't boil. Add the chocolate chips and stir until shiny and the chocolate completely melt.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder
This can be stored in an airtight container. I make a huge batch so I can use it during the week to cut down on preparation time.
