Woohoo for a new camera! It's nothing special just something to get us by until we can get a nice one, I'm just excited to get back to snapping some shots of the little ones.
Speaking of the little ones my youngest has a bathroom chart that he gets to put a sticker on if he uses the potty properly, if he does not then he has to remove a sticker. As a reward he gets to go out for ice cream once the chart is all filled up. E decided that instead of going out for ice cream he wanted me to buy some to share with his brothers and sister. I thought that that was kind of him to share his reward so I decided to make the experience a little bit more special. I've had a recipe for chocolate waffle iron cookies that I pull out once in a blue moon, I don't know why it's so seldom it's a super simple recipe and even the little kids can help out. Below is the recipe for these waffles along with a recipe for Chocolate Sauce that is
And again, super simple. Add some vanilla ice cream, chocolate sprinkles and a cherry on top and you've got it made! Your kids will think your the best.
gather your ingredients: sugar, evaporated milk, cocoa powder, butter and vanilla extract.
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine
- 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Combine butter, cocoa, sugar and milk in a saucepan and bring to a full boil for 5-6 minutes stirring continually. Remove from heat, add vanilla
and serve or let cool, I don't like my chocolate sauce melting my ice cream....I know, I'm kinda weird like that.
Chocolate Waffle Iron Cookies
gather your ingredients: butter, sugar, eggs, cocoa, flour and vanilla
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Mix the butter and sugar. Add eggs, cocoa, flour and vanilla. Mix well. Heat waffle iron. Using a cookie scoop drop dough onto each section, close cover and bake for 60 seconds or until waffle iron indicates it's done. Remove cookies to a cooling rack. Repeat until cookie dough is gone.
Don't they look tasty?
Now time to put it all together! Gather the cookies, Ice cream (vanilla for me!), chocolate sauce, chocolate sprinkles (you can NEVER have too much chocolate!), and marciano cherries.
