Chocolate Covered Waffles

By on

Last week my husband and I went out to our favorite little French cafe where we sometimes have tea, and I ordered a waffle off the dessert menu. It was so good; they had this nice crispy waffle served with a pear and rich chocolate ganache. I decided that I was going to try and duplicate that yummy waffle for one of my treat of the days.

I start with basic waffle mix.

I was so excited to see Nestles has dark chocolate chips now! I followed the directions on the back for dipping chocolate, which is really meant for strawberries but hey you can dip it in whatever you want. Then I spooned the chocolate on the waffles and let it drain. Admittedly this was tricker than I had envisioned because the chocolate got stuck in the waffle holes. I figured out it worked best when I let it drain on one said and flip it to drain on the other side. Of course I topped it with some homemade vanilla ice cream I had left in the freezer.
