Chocolate Waffle Cookies


This is such the perfect summer treat: chocolate cookies without having to use your oven! These cookies were a frequent favorite in my family growing up.  And I love making them in the summer time in order to keep my house cool but still get a yummy, chocolatey treat :)

Ingredients:
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 c melted margarine
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 6 Tbl. cocoa
  • 2 c flour

Instructions:

  1. Plug in and preheat your waffle iron.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients, except the flour, and mix well.  
  3. Slowly add in flour and mix until there are no lumps. 
  4. Drop about 2 Tbl. of the batter onto one square of the waffle iron 

  5. Close the top and bake for about 1 minute.

  6. Carefully pull off the cookies from the waffle iron and place on a cooling rack to cool.  I usually use a small pair of tongs or a fork to pull my cookies off.  

  7. After your cookies have cooled frost with the following recipe.
Ingredients (Frosting):
  • 1/2 c butter or margarine
  • 1/2 c cocoa
  • 6 Tbl. milk
  • 3 3/4 c powdered sugar
Instructions (Frosting):
  1. Mix butter, cocoa and milk in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil stirring constantly
  2. After it is boiling, take it off the stove and slowly add in 1 cup of powdered sugar at a time until desired thickness is reached.
