These turned out pretty good. I added a little more cocoa powder (between 1/2 - 1 tablespoon extra) and sugar (around 1/8 cup) to the batter. The waffles were extremely dense and heavy and tasted pretty good. I think they would be better with a little more cocoa and sugar to up the chocolate taste. I did make the hard sauce to go with it. I realized as I was making it that it's basically exactly like my white frosting recipe, except when I make frosting, I melt the butter instead of using softened butter. This makes the sauce very creamy; using softened butter resulted in lumps of butter and powdered sugar that did not break up even after I whisked it well. We have several leftover waffles and will try them with vanilla ice cream next. A decent recipe, but not our favorite breakfast. Hopefully we will like it better as a dessert.
