Chocolate Waffle Cookies

Chocolate Waffle Cookies (Adapted from Martha Stewart)

For the cookies

3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
16 tablespoon unsalted butter, divided
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup plus Dutch-process cocoa powder, sifted
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

For the glaze

2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 1/2 tablespoons milk

To make the cookies

In a small saucepan, add unsweetened chocolate and butter - melt over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the stove and let cool slightly.

In a large mixing bowl, add eggs, vanilla and granulated sugar - beat on medium speed with the paddle attachment until very pale - about 5 minutes.

Add in chocolate mixture, salt, cinnamon, 1/2 cup cocoa and the flour.

Preheat a waffle iron until hot. Lightly coat grids with cooking spray.

Using a tablespoon cookie scoop, portion out the batter between the center of each waffle-iron square. Pull down the cover and cook until set, about 1 1/2 minutes. Use a fork to help you coax the cookie off and move them to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining batter.

To make the glaze

In a small saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in confectioners' sugar and 2 tablespoons cocoa powder. Stir in milk until smooth - remove from the heat.

Gently dip 1 side of each cookie in the glaze so that just the waffle lines are coated. Transfer to wire racks and let sit until the glaze has set - at least 10 minutes. Dust cookies with extra confectioners’ sugar before serving.

Makes about 4-5 dozen cookies.

  1. Wow those look incredible. I"m going to have to try them.

  2. it looks like my icing isn't drying, how am i supposed to freeze them now? :-( what did i do wrong?

  3. Anon - my icing set up within 10 to 15 minutes. Did you alter any of the ingredients for it? You could try setting them in the refrigerator just long enough to accelerate the process.

  4. These are my favorite childhood cookies...they used to by my grandmothers favorite childhood cookies as well (early 1940's)so it is good to see that they are still being tried and made by lots of others...enjoy them one or two at a time. ;)
