Chocolate Waffle Cookies

These chocolate waffle cookies are a long time family favorite.

It’s even one of the few memories I’ve retained from when I was about 7. Someone brought us some of these cookies and the whole family very quickly had a new favorite.

The only problem is finding the right kind of waffle iron, which is why I haven’t made them in a few years.

I finally just gave in and made them with the one I’ve got. And they still tasted amazing!

Because the key is in the frosting! Make sure to frost them right when they come off of the waffle iron and then they’ll be perfect and gooey! I’ve included the recipe for my favorite chocolate frosting, but you could definitely use store bought frosting as well! Just enjoy the yumminess!
