How to Make Belgian Chocolate Waffles

Making scrumptious chocolate waffles is quick and easy to do! Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Preheat your waffle iron according to the appliance instructions. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the dry ingredients. Mix until blended. One by one, add each of the wet ingredients to the mixing bowl. Mix until all of the ingredients are fully incorporated into the Belgian waffle batter. The batter will be thick. Add mini chocolate chips to the bowl and mix briefly. Your decadent triple chocolate waffles are ready to be made!

To help prevent the chocolate Belgian waffles from sticking to your waffle maker, lightly brush the grids of the waffle iron with butter or oil, or use a cooking spray. Once your waffle iron is heated and ready, pour one cup of waffle batter onto the center of the grids. Close the waffle iron. Cook according to appliance instructions.

When making Belgian chocolate waffles in my heart-shaped waffle maker, it takes one minute on the first side and then I flip my waffle iron over. My Belgian waffle then cooks for another 1-1/2 to 2 minutes on the second side. Place your cooked waffle on a baking tray and stick it in the oven to keep it warm while you’re preparing more chocolate waffles. This will also help to further crisp things up.

How to Serve Triple Chocolate Belgian Waffles

These triple chocolate Belgian waffles have a beautiful taste and texture. They’re crisp on the outside, super tender on the inside and not overly sweet. The flavors are decadent but also wonderfully well balanced. Serve your chocolate waffles fresh and hot right off the grids with melted or softened butter, whipped cream and generous drizzles of thick chocolate syrup or hot fudge. You’ll love that this easy Belgian waffle recipe can be made in advance. This is really helpful when preparing a large brunch with several different menu items. Simply freeze the waffles in a ziplock freezer bag. When you’re ready to serve them, just rewarm the waffles in your conventional oven or toaster.

Chocolate Belgian waffles are a great way to start the day.


  • 1 + 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons malted milk powder
  • 1/2 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter, slightly cooled
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 bag of mini chocolate chips (6 ounces)
  • thick chocolate syrup or hot fudge (the type used for ice cream sundaes)
  • Optional garnishes: melted or softened butter, whipped cream and a Maraschino cherry


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees (to keep cooked waffles warm). Preheat your waffle iron per appliance instructions.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, malted milk powder, and cocoa powder. Mix well.
  3. Add in the wet ingredients: milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix until all ingredients are fully incorporated. The Belgian waffle batter will be thick. Add in the mini chocolate chips and mix again briefly.
  4. Brush the grills of the waffle iron with melted butter or oil, or use a cooking spray to keep your chocolate waffles from sticking to the grills.
  5. Pour one cup of waffle batter onto the center of the waffle iron. Close the waffle iron and cook according to appliance directions. For the heart-shaped waffle maker I use it takes one minute to cook on the first side, then just 1-1/2 to 2 minutes on the second side. If you’re making several waffles, store the cooked waffles on a baking tray inside your warm oven until the waffle-making process is completed.
  6. Serve your triple chocolate Belgian waffles with butter, whipped cream and generous drizzles of thick chocolate syrup or hot fudge. If you’re feeling fancy, add a bright-red Maraschino cherry on top!
