Waffle Brownie Cookies

When I was in Jr. High, I took a Home Ec. class. This was the first time I really ever made a recipe with myself. This was one of those recipes and it was obviously delicious enough to withstand the tests of time :)

These cookies are SO easy and fun to make! Kids love them because of their fun waffle shape. My mom would make these for after school snacks for us growing up. I make them when I need a quick chocolate fix! They really are super good!

    Did you cut each individual square waffle with a cookie cutter afterwards? They view to be more "rounded" then square like the waffle iron.

    I'm thinking of baking these and shipping them off to son at college. Cut them down to the size of a mini cupcake foil older. Do you believe this should travel well w/o damage?

    I love following your recipes.

    Thanks Robin

      no the brownie batter doesn't spread all the way out. It creates the circle-ish shapes itself :)

    Not only a brownie in a waffle but frosting on top. So fun! We only made healthy things in home ec.

    I just got a new waffle maker. I need to crack it open pronto to make these. Awesome, Nikki! And I love that it's a from-scratch batter. You go girl! Pinned!

  4. Liz @Life Made Sweet

    These are so fun!!! I love the idea of using waffles as cookies and all the icing in the crevices are probably delish! Pinning this for sure!

    I don't own a waffle iron. YES, I know! We're registering for one. And these cookies are such a fun twist on what is usually made on one.

    These fun little cookies are just too cute.

    I still make English muffin pizzas on the reg, which was something my mom learned to make when she was a girl scout. It's those simple classics that sometimes give us the most satisfaction.

    I am totally making these tonight,. B and P have a weird obsession with waffles, I think they will freak when they see cookies made like waffles!

    Wow, crazy! I have a waffle chocolate cookie recipe I'm posting in a couple days! Although no frosting... your frosting looks so tasty! Love the sprinkles, too! :)

    These were great! I have 5 kids, and they were a huge hit for 4 of them! (One of my kids can't eat them because of egg allergies but he still enjoyed licking the frosting off the spoon!)

    I did make two changes to the recipe, but mostly just because of personal preference. I used 1/4 cup less flour than called for which created a tiny bit crispy on the outside, and light and airy on the inside texture. The other change was I added about 1/3 cup more powdered sugar to the frosting, I wanted a less buttery taste.

    I think this is an excellent recipe, and will definitely be kept with my collection of recipes to use from bloggers! Thank you for share!

    If you have not tried this.... DO IT!!!! It is awesome!!! They will come out soft if you stop them before the two minute mark.. at least they did for me... The kids loved them. The Grandkids thought this was the BEST way to make cookies. AMAZING idea and dince it was over 100 outside today, I got to make cookies and NOT heat up my kitchen.. YAY
