Every once in a while, we all like to splurge on something really, really, unhealthy for breakfast. If you never do that, well, you need to fix that habit immediately and have some of these waffles!
I don’t often sway from my eggs, fruit, yogurt, or oatmeal for breakfast; today was an exception as I was feeling like something sweet and just really delicious that had chocolate and peanut butter all throughout it. Oh, and toffee. The three go together so perfectly!
I was waiting till Friday came around to post these. Sharing stuff like this on the weekend seems more appropriate for some reason. . . I guess it’s because that’s when people tend to indulge on foods they don’t usually eat during the week, or is that just me? Haha. I decided I couldn’t wait to share these.
Pretty sure my favorite part was biting into the middle where all the whipped cream and chocolate were hanging out at. I made my own whipped cream, but if you like whipped cream on your waffles like I do, you can buy the canned stuff or make it yourself. I personally love making and eating my own whipped cream as I can control how sweet I want it(always a plus).
Oh and really, the only hard part about this recipe is trying not to eat all the toffee before it even reaches the batter bowl. Ahem. Other than that, it’s very simple and quick to throw together! They’re so addicting, too, oh my gosh. My siblings were eating them straight out of the waffle maker.. usually, that never happens to waffles unless they’ve just dumped a gallon of syrup and a pound of butter on top.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 3/4 cups milk
- 1/2 cup oil (I used vegetable oil)
- 1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 1 cup chopped chocolate covered toffee (I used Heath)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 10 ounces semi-sweet or bitter-sweet chocolate chips
- whipped cream (optional)
- Preheat a waffle maker(I used a belgium waffle maker) and lightly spray with cooking spray.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and sugar.
- In another bowl, add the milk, oil, peanut butter, toffee, vanilla, and eggs; whisk till combined.
- Make a well in the flour with your hands and pour in the liquid. whisk till just combined, you don't want to over beat it.
- Add the batter in batches to the preheated waffle maker. Bake till the waffles are golden in color and crunchy.
- While the waffles are baking, place a heat proof bowl over a pot of boiling water(making sure the water doesn't touch the bottom of the bowl) and melt the chocolate chips of your choice (I personally like bitter-sweet over semi-sweet, but that's just me) till completely melted.
- Top the waffles with whipped cream, pour the melted chocolate over, then sprinkle a little more toffee bits and peanuts if you like. Enjoy!
