Chocolate Dessert Waffles

These were so good- I've been wanting to try a dessert waffle for a long time and finally did so a few weeks ago, when my daughter had a slumber party.  We had these instead of dinner.  :)  Our local store got Blue Bell ice cream in, so we had that on top with homemade caramel sauce and chocolate syrup. 

Chocolate Buttermilk Dessert Waffles
adapted from Alton Brown

7 ounces all-purpose flour, approximately 1 1/2 cups
1 3/4 ounces sugar, approximately 3 tablespoons
1.5 ounces cocoa powder, approximately 1/2 cup
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 whole eggs, beaten
2 ounces unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
16 ounces buttermilk, room temperature
4 ounces chocolate chips, approximately 3/4 cup
Vegetable spray, for waffle iron

1.  Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions.  In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. In another bowl beat together the eggs and melted butter and vanilla, and then add the buttermilk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir in the chocolate chips just until combined. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.

2.  Ladle the recommended amount of waffle batter onto the center of the iron. Close the iron top and cook until the waffle is crispy on both sides and is easily removed from iron. Serve immediately with ice cream and toppings.
