Double Chocolate Waffles

These double chocolate waffles have a bit of melted dark chocolate in every bite. Have them as a snack or dessert, or spread them with peanut butter for a sweet breakfast treat!

Double Chocolate Waffles

I’m pretty proud of how my “stock the freezer before baby’s arrival” efforts are going. I’ll do a full update on everything I prepped in advance later, but so far we have lots of dinners ranging from butternut squash and pork lasagna to carnitas taquitos to chicken pot pie. We have a few snack-y items like raisin nut granola, and then a ton of waffles. Seriously, I can’t stop making waffles.  It feels like I should view that as a problem, because who seriously needs seven gallon bags of waffles in their freezer? At the same time, I just keep telling myself that we can have them for breakfast, dinner (we love breakfast-for-dinner!) and snacks, so the quantity isn’t a problem.  We’ll see how this pans out.

So far, I’ve frozen two batches of plain waffles, one of orange yogurt waffles and two of these double chocolate waffles. I know they sound more like dessert waffles, but if you spread them with some peanut butter for some protein and healthy fats, they can work for breakfast, too!

I made these for my first post as a Handle the Heat contributor. I’m so excited to be writing for Tessa on a monthly basis! Head on over to Handle the Heat to check out my double chocolate waffles recipe!

Here’s how to freeze waffles for later!

Happy Galentine’s Day!

Don’t know what Galentine’s Day is? Then you clearly don’t follow along with one of my and Dan’s favorite shows, Parks and Recreation. According to Leslie Knope, February 13 is all about women celebrating women. It’s the day to “leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and…just come and kick it, breakfast-style… It’s like Lillith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.”

So naturally, when I was invited to celebrate Galentine’s Day this year, I immediately knew I needed to make waffles. Not only are crispy orange yogurt waffles perfect for a ladies-only brunch, but waffles are also Leslie Knope’s favorite food. So that was an easy decision.

This morning, I raise a forkful of waffles in a toast to my closest girl friends, all of whom amaze me in different ways. I’ve got a waffle for the friend who’s been by my side since seventh grade, and I’m so grateful that we live in the same city again, despite the fact that our busy schedules keep us from meeting up as often as we’d like. There’s one for the college friend who was there for the beginning of my and Dan’s relationship, who got ordained to officiate at our wedding, and is now off getting both her MD and PhD at the same time (she’s crazy and brilliant and we love her for it). And of course, there’s one for the best friend we left behind in Ithaca, with whom I exchange dozens of emails and an hour-long Skype call on a weekly basis. I wouldn’t have gotten through this move without her.

Take some time today to send some love to your girl friends and the women who inspire you. It is Galentine’s Day, after all!
