When I was a little girl, growing up in Kansas City, Mo., my mother made these waffles for the family, especially if we were expecting company.
For a little girl, the best part of this was the waffle iron Mother used. It was called a "Mazie Lee". All the waffles came out with a sun, moon and stars on them. The iron was used on the stovetop, so you cooked one side at a time.
The iron is in my possession, and I enjoy making this treat for my family.
"If you like waffles and chocolate, this recipe is for you," assures Agnes Golian of Garfield Heights, Ohio. "These tender but crunchy waffles are great for breakfast, brunch or an after-dinner dessert. "
TIP: Instead of chocolate topping, top with berries and whipped cream or simply sprinkle with powdered sugar.
“These fluffy waffles are a real breakfast treat,” writes Nancy Zimmerman of Cape May Court House, New Jersey. “You can also serve them for dessert with a scoop of frozen yogurt and the syrup drizzled over the top.”
I've tried for years to duplicate a delicious waffle I ate at a restaurant chain here in the South. This is the closest I've come, and they're crisp and nutty. Butter and maple syrup are my family's favorite toppings. Why not serve them for your holiday brunch?

"My grandmother made these waffles in a waffle iron on a wood-burning stove," says Barbara Syme of Peoria, Arizona. "The crispy golden waffles are special to me because, 40 years ago, I served them to my husband the first night I cooked in our new house."
You can’t go wrong with peanut butter and Nutella, but the secret here is using really juicy strawberries. Never tried Nutella? Look for the hazelnut-flavored spread near the peanut butter at the grocery store. —Frances Pietsch, Flower Mound, Texas
this is a great recipe for entertaining because it's easy yet extremely impressive. No one will guess it only takes minutes to prepare. The creamy brown sugar and pecan filling between the waffles is delectable!
Cardamom has such a delicate flavor. I've been making coffee cakes with this interesting spice for years, and now I found a use for it in waffles. More often than not, my family will request these waffles instead of plain ones.Ruth Andrewson, Leavenworth, Washington
