Chocolate Waffle Cookies

Well, I had no intention of making two kinds of cookies today, however..... I promised the kids cookies after lunch (that means the moment after they've swallowed the last bite of their sandwich to them) and the Root Beer Cookie dough is chilling. So I thought I better make sure and keep my promise. This recipe came to mind! My mother-in-law makes these cookies all the time and everyone LOVES them. I've always told myself I didn't like them enough to want to make them (but I lied). I have only tried these once, and that was nearly 12 years ago. They stuck to my waffle iron and totally irritated me, so I swore I'd never make them again. Well, come a little bit closer because I have a secret to tell you..... are you ready??? I CONQUERED WAFFLE COOKIES!!!! And you can too! Your family and friends (or just you) will love the soft and moist chocolatiness (I know, it's not a word) of these cookies! Just follow the directions and I think you'll be just fine!
First of all, if you have an older waffle iron, USE IT! The more seasoned it is, the better! I plug in my waffle iron and get it heated real well while I'm mixing up the dough. Then I take a little bowl and pour about 3-4 Tablespoons of oil in it and use a pastry brush (I like a silicone pastry brush because they don't leave hairs behind :-)) to grease the waffle maker plates between each and every little "batch" of cookies! If you forget this step, you'll know it!
Chocolate Waffle Cookies
A Recipe of Cheryl's
adapted by fromcupboardtocupboard
First, cream together:
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup margarine
Then add:
2 eggs
Beat well.
Now add:
1/2 cup milk
1 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
Mix well and drop by spoonfuls ( I use a cookie scoop of course, a medium sized one) onto your prepared HOT well-greased waffle iron! I wait until they stop steaming. Then pull them out CAREFULLY using a fork to lift them off the iron. Cool completely on a rack. With the medium cookie scoop, I got 22 cookies.
Now for the glaze:
2 cups powdered sugar
3-4 Tbsp milk
1/2-1 tsp vanilla
Mix well and drizzle over cooled cookies with a pastry brush. Let set and ENJOY!!!
Happy Cooking!


  1. Oh yummy!!! I love waffle cookies, but i've never had chocolate kind!!! I'm excited to try it! My favorite of your recipes has been the chocolate cake in the dutch oven. I've made it three times and oh- I just don't get tired of it!!! Love it!!! My mom called yesterday to get the recipe too!!!

  2. I just made these today. I don't have a blog, but I posted pictures on my facebook to torment people hahaha. They are SO yummy! I'm sad that I burned a batch trying to figure out the temperature on my waffle iron.


Thanks for visiting! Your happy comments make my day!
