Chocolate Waffles, dripping with homemade strawberry jam and adorned with a dollop of whip cream. Chocolaty richness in every bite. This recipe comes from The Ghirardelli Chocolate Cookbook.
These Chocolate Waffles are WONDERFUL!!!! My family was thrilled beyond belief when I served them up for breakfast. Some ate them with maple syrup, some with strawberry jam, some just ate them plain. Take your pick. They are good as can be and would make a wonderful holiday breakfast.



Chocolate Waffles
Time: 30 minutes
Yeild: 14 waffles

2 C flour
1 C Ghirardelli Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 T baking powder
2 T sugar
1/2 t salt
2 C milk
4 large eggs, separated
4 T canola oil
1 C Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips


1. Combine the baking powder, flour and cocoa in a mixing bowl.
2. In a separate bowl whisk together the milk, egg yolks and oil. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients.
3. In another bowl beat the egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. It shouldn't take long, only about 3 minutes.
4. Fold the egg whites into your chocolaty batter.
5. Stir in your chocolate chips and you are ready to roll.
6. Spray your waffle iron with cooking spray and cook until done.

Serve with maple syrup, or strawberry jam.



 CHOCOLATE TOFFEE CHEESECAKE


Chocolate Toffee Cheesecake.  Need I say more. This heavenly dessert would make a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving Holiday Feast. I for one, am planning on making it...just so I have another chance to eat it. It really is down right SCRUMPTIOUS!!!!
If you are a Cheesecake fan, this dessert it for you.

Chocolate Toffee Cheesecake 
Time: 90 minutes + time 3 hours refrigeration
Yield: 12 servings
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!

Crust:
30 Oreos
1/3 C melted butter

Filling:
4  8 oz packages cream cheese
1 C sugar
2 t vanilla
1 C sour cream
4 eggs

Topping:
8  oz  Ghirardelli Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips (2/3 of a 12 oz bag)
8  oz whipping cream
dash salt
1/2 t vanilla
1  12 oz bag health toffee pieces



1. For the crust, grind your Oreos in a small food processor. Place the crumbs in a small mixing bowl. 
2. Pour the melted butter over the crumbs and mix to combine well.
3. Get out your handy 10 inch spring form pan. Press the crust crumbs over the bottom of the pan and up 1 inch of the sides. It works well to use the a small measuring cup to help form the crust to the pan.
4. Beat the cream cheese in your stand mixer, or with hand held beaters for about 2 minutes, until smooth. 
5. Add the sugar and vanilla and mix until well combined.
6. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well between each egg.
7. Stir the sour cream into the mixture, just until incorporated.
8. Place a 9x13 pan of water on the lower rack of your oven.
9. Pour your cheesecake filling over the chocolate crust.
10. Put the cheesecake into a 350 degree oven and bake for 60-70 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from the oven when a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cheesecake comes out clean.
11. Cool completely on a wire rack and then refrigerate for at least 2 hours. 
12. Put all topping ingredients (but the toffee chips) into a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds, and then stir. Keep heating in 30 second increments until the chocolate melts and can easily be incorporated into the cream. Whisk it together well.
13. Set the chocolate topping on the counter and let it set up for about 15 minutes, or until it begins to thicken a bit. You need to be careful here. If you pour it over the top of your cheesecake when it's too thin you'll have a real mess on your hands. You want it thick enough that once you put it on the top of the cheesecake, you can gently push it over the side and it will set nicely. The longer you let it sit, the thicker it will become. 
14. When the topping is the right consistency pour it on top of the cheesecake. Gently push it over the sides in several areas with a spoon.
15. Cover with toffee chips and return to the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.

  1. I could eat chocolate rubbed in dirt! Well, no not really but I adore deep dark rich chocolate...and being a Gluten Free person I would have to say my favorite way these days to eat this heavenly treat is a flour less chocolate cake covered in a rich Ghiradelli dark chocolate ganache! Oh God its just divine!

  3. I take my chocolate straight. And any other way I can get it. On a regular basis. I have never had chocolate waffles but I can see them in my future. I'm making the chocolate pie this week. Now I can plainly see the chocolate cheesecake is coming to my house soon too. Looks so yummy.

  47. I love to sneak a keep a bag of chocolate chips in my pantry and hide them from myself *wink*, i love to "steal" them little by little! Some how or another It feels like I am getting away with something naughty when I eat them this way! Chocolate in large doses gives me a migraine, but eating a few chips at a time gets around this problem, luckily for me, as I am a diehard chocoholic!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I can eat chocolate any way someone wants to give me or any way I can incorporate it in my recipes. I love it in drink form, cake form, cookie form, bread form and even put in chili sometimes. Yummy! Chocolate is a little piece of heaven and I enjoy it way too much, but it brings a smile to my soul every time I have some.

  102. My favorite way to eat chocolate is with my 7yr old son. We have a tradition that whenever we go to the grocery store with out his brothers we buy a chocolate bar to share. He loves that he gets to break it in half (of course his half is always bigger). I think it makes him feel a little special & he always reminds me when we are leaving the store that we need to buy our special chocolate bar. drnichols77@gmail.com

  103. Jamie, I don't have a Twitter account and my blog is private, so I know I'm not going to win this giveaway...however, I couldn't resist commenting because I don't have a favorite way to eat chocolate...I am not that picky! :) I will eat it anytime, anywhere, with anything...I have even been known to eat it off the ground (10 second rule, of course). Maybe you should have asked "When DON'T you like to eat chocolate!" :) Also, I seriously got the giggles when I read your recipe...it says "1 12 oz. bag HEALTH toffee pieces"! So, now that I know they are healthy I'm going to make a point to eat more of them! Ha ha ha! :) You are the best Jamie! Keep on cookin'!

  139. I don't have a favorite way to eat chocolate, as long as I get it! I love chocolate milk, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, brownies, cakes, fudge. I am one of the few humans that has ever had a dream about chasing a life sized M&M down the street so I could eat it!

    The pan of water is placed on the rack below the cheesecake to help prevent cracking.

  169. I love The Perfect Chocolate Cake recipe and also the chocolate cake made with a cup of coffee which brings out the chocolate flavors just perfectly. Otherwise, just letting it melt in your mouth isn't bad either!

    ReplyDelete
  170. That choc-toffee cheesecake looks and sounds wonderful! I suspect I'm going to LOVE it. But my absolutely favorite way to eat chocolate is to buy the good stuff--really dark chocolate--and eat it straight. Mmmm. Healthy too :)

  171. The cheesecake looks like heaven!
    I love chocolate in almost any form--really prefer good quality chocolate but I'll settle for lesser brands (Ghirardelli is great) if necessary!
