When I was a kid, I loved Eggo’s waffles. In fact, I didn’t know that any other kind of waffle existed because my family exclusively ate Eggo’s waffles and never went out to brunch. So really it wasn’t until I started hanging out at the local Waffle House (a favorite teen hangout spot in suburban Georgia), that I realized that Eggo’s waffles are mini compared to regular waffles, and that also they don’t taste as good as a real homemade waffle. Though can you compete with the flavor of nostalgia? That’s a different question…

At a recent White Elephant gift exchange I received a mini waffle maker. So cute! I usually have a tradition of weekend pancake breakfasts, but I knew I had to make some waffles the next day. If you are a pancake > waffle kind of person, you can check out myย Chocolate milk pancakes. They are just as easy to make and fluffy and delicious as well. But if you are a waffles > pancake person (me!) then keep reading for this recipe.

What makes these waffles extra chocolatey?

These waffles are chocolatey because I add a generous scoop of cocoa powder. They’re extra chocolatey and moist because I use chocolate milk instead of regular milk. And they’re super chocolatey on top of that because I add some chopped chocolate chunks. Hence the triple chocolate – cocoa powder + chocolate milk + chocolate chunks. It’s chocolate heaven but not super overwhelming. In my original recipe I added a tsp of cinnamon, but honestly I couldn’t even taste the cinnamon so it’s purely optional if you want to add any spices!

I am a big supporter of boxed pancake and waffle mix (just make your life a little easier on the weekends, no one is judging). I used Aunt Jemimaโ€™s original mix with some adjustments.

If you’re looking for a quick and healthier syrup alternative, I make aย Syrup Alternative: Healthy Berry Compote on the side while my waffles are cooking. It adds a wonderful tartness that goes great with all that yummy chocolate ๐Ÿ™‚
