So, these fudge waffles? Yeah… you have GOT TO make them. They’re outrageously, decadently delicious and should probably come with a sugar rush warning sign if you do decide to eat them for breakfast. They are truly a dessert in every possible sense because let’s face it, while you can top many breakfast foods with ice cream and chocolate sauce you probably shouldn’t make a habit out of it. But every once in a while for a special treat to honor a very scrumptious recipe, waffles + ice cream + chocolate sauce = pure happiness.
My new blog contributor Julie recently shared a delightful recipe for Double Chocolate Waffles that had me craving chocolate waffles something fierce. Then I stumbled upon this recipe for Fudge Waffles with ice cream and chocolate sauce and I just had to test it out. The results were too good not to share.
The homemade chocolate sauce recipe I shared recently makes for the perfect pairing with these waffles, you must make both for optimum chocolate indulging results! The waffles taste incredible but are surprisingly simple to make, no complicated yeast batters or anything like that to enjoy the slightly crisp, ultra rich and fudgy yet soft and gooey goodness. YUM. By the way, I used my beloved Chef’s Choice Classic Waffle Maker to make these babies.

- Cook the waffles in a preheated greased waffle iron until done, following the directions for your own waffle iron. Serve immeadiately (or keep warm in a 200°F oven) with the ice cream of your choice and chocolate sauce. Waffles can be made ahead and wrapped in plastic wrap and served the next day or frozen for up to 2 weeks. Rewarm them in a toaster oven.
