Happy Happy New Year friends! I hope the holidays were amazing for you and full of fun, friends and family. I made some chocolate chip waffles for us to help kick off 2017. So let’s get to it. Chip Chip Hooray!
Okay first, check out my awesome new waffle maker. I got this beauty from my mom for Christmas and it’s pretty cool. It stands upright and you pour batter in through the opening on top. When done baking, you just lower the front to get your waffle.
For the recipe, grab some buttermilk, flour, eggs, oil, vanilla, sugar, corn meal, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and mini chocolate chips.
Whisk the dry ingredients together and then the wet ingredients together in two separate large bowls.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix it all together
Stir in the mini chips and pour batter into your waffle maker.
Since you pour batter into the opening on the top of this machine, it’s easy to make sure you get enough to make a complete waffle. Any excess kind of overflows up into the opening so you can just trim the extra off when you remove the waffles.
Waffle time! It’s the best time.
Enjoy these big boys with melted butter, syrup, powdered sugar, ice cream or whipped cream.
Yeah, let’s celebrate 2017 and go big with whipped cream (and more) … chocolate syrup, powdered sugar and extra mini chocolate chips to make a three layer waffle cake.
That’s the stuff.
I couldn’t stop.
