Chocolate Waffles with Cherry Berry topping

Because waffles are one of those foods you can have any time of day, why not for dessert? This is an easy way to serve a delicious Black Forest type dessert. Make the waffles ahead, if you like, and toast them up on the oven rack for a few minutes just before serving.

Ingredients for 6-8 small waffles
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 6 Tbsp cocoa
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla or almond extract

Cherry Berry Topping:
  • 1 can light n' fruity cherry pie filling
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries

Whipped Topping:
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • almond extract or vanilla to taste

  1. In mixing bowl, mix dry ingredients.
  2. Add wet in order given and mix with hand mixer until thoroughly mixed. Maybe a minute, then let sit while the waffle iron heats.
  3. Scoop about 2 serving spoons of batter into center of iron, about 3 inches in diameter (as a round waffle) allowing space on the sides to make a smaller waffle. If using a square waffle iron, just fill as usual and separate sections when done.
  4. Cook until done. Remove gently (will be soft) onto wire rack. If too soft to remove, let sit in open iron for a minute. Keep warm in 175 F oven to crisp slightly or re-heat just before serving,  if making ahead.
  5. Mix cherry pie filling and strawberries
  6. Beat whipping cream until stiff, In separate bowl beat cream cheese and sugar, then combine with whipped cream. Add flavor according to taste.  
  7. Serve each waffle with a nice serving of fruit and cream.  Drizzle with chocolate syrup if desired.

  2. Oh my goodness, how yummy! I've never had chocolate waffles but these would make a terrific dessert. Sort of like chocolate cake with whipped cream topping. I like the idea of drizzling a bit of chocolate syrup on top.

  3. Looks incredible. Hubs has been asking for some waffles and he loves cherries. Thanks to you I'm going to put a big smile on his face when I put this down in front of him :)

  4. Chocolate waffles!!! Who knew you could make your waffles this way - I LOVE this idea. The fresh strawberries and cherry pie filling mixture sounds so delightful and also the cream cheese whipped topping! This looks divine.
