Reviews for Black Forest Waffles
"I didn't care for this recipe. The chocolate mixture clumped even though I cooled it first before adding it in. The chocolate flavor wasn't strong enough. I'm a big chocolate fan, but next time I'll make regular waffles and top with cherries, whipped cream and a few chocolate chips."
