Virtual Cookie Exchange- Chocolate Waffle Cookies

The sounds, sights, and smells of Christmas are all around my house! I have been sewing and baking while listening to Christmas music. It doesn’t get any better than this. 🙂

My sewing consists of Christmas quilts and Christmas Pajamas. My baking consists of COOKIES! I am so happy to joining along in the Virtual Cookie Exchange hosted by Carol over at Just Let Me Quilt. Yum!!

Cookies are a favorite around our house all year long. But we all know Santa loves his cookies so Christmas cookies are the BEST!!

My daughter spent an entire summer baking a new batch of cookies from our church cookbook everyday. Yes, you heard me right, EVERY day! My family calls that the best summer of their lives. 🙂

We soon learned if a recipe was a thumbs up recipe or a trash bin recipe. The way to tell was this — if there were any left the next day, they went into the trash bin along with the recipe. The really good cookies were all eaten before the end of the day.

There were quite a few thumbs up recipes, but the “Chocolate Waffle Cookies” were among the very top of the list.

So when I heard about this Cookie Exchange, I knew that these were the cookies I wanted to share with you. They are soft, moist, and oh so chocolatey. I know you are going to LOVE them!

Chocolate Waffle Cookies

Recipe submitted by- Tracy @It’s a T-Sweets Day!

Ingredients:

  • 1c butter
  • 1 1/2c granulated sugar
  • 1/2c cocoa powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 2c flour
  • 1Tbs vanilla

Frosting:

  • 1c butter
  • 3Tbs cocoa powder
  • 6Tbs milk
  • 1 lb powdered sugar
  • Slivered almonds or chopped nuts

Directions:

Make the frosting first so it will be ready to spread when the cookies come off of the waffle iron.

Frosting:

In a saucepan over medium high heat, mix together butter, powdered sugar, cocoa, and milk. Stir and bring to a boil. Remove from heat.

Cookies:

Combine butter, cocoa, sugar, eggs, flour and vanilla. Mix well. The batter will be thick.

Drop by scooper or tablespoonful onto a hot waffle iron that has been sprayed with oil. Cook for 1 min. 15 sec.

Remove from iron with a fork. Generously cover warm cookie with frosting and sprinkle nuts on top. Yield – 2 dozen cookies

Yum! Yum! Yum! These are so delicious! There may be one or two missing, but I won’t say where they went…..hee, hee😊

  1. Hi Tracy,
    Oh boy, these look delicious – AND a waffle iron?!! How cool is that?!! I think we need to try these at the cookie bake this year. Merry Christmas to you and your family. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. Those look perfect to kill a chocolate craving! We are doing the great cookie debate here….if I bake them, I am the only one to eat them, and I don’t need the sugar….maybe we can have cookies out in the studio next week. That way I can get my baking fix and someone else will eat them! I’ll freeze a few for when Girl #1 comes home.

  3. Loved hearing about the BEST SUMMER EVER! Now, that’s quite a feat but what a great way to spend 3 months – eating that is – not baking. lol These sound wonderful and I think they’d make great summer cookies, too, since there would be no oven to heat up the house. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Merry Christmas.

  4. Now THAT one I have to try! I love using my waffle iron, though it’s the smaller round kind, so I’ll have to experiment with this. Thank you! Your pictures are so cute and artistic.
