Chocolate Waffles!! YUMMY (with a strawberry sauce)

These are so yummy they should be banded!! I made these for my husband for Father's Day and he was in heaven for sure!

They were really simple to put together and even the sauce wasn't to bad...for the waffles you'll need

2/3 c flour
1/3 c cornstarch
1/4 c cocoa powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cinnamon
6 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 c milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c chocolate chips (for topping)

In a bowl combine flour, cornstarch, cocoa power, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a separate bowl whisk together sugar, milk, oil, egg and vanilla. Slowly add the two bowls together making sure not to over mix. Batter will be pretty thin so don't sure to spray your waffle iron before, pour into iron and cook to iron directions. This made about 4 hole waffles for us.

The recipe calls for the chocolate chips to be added to the batter mix but we found it to work better if just topped with chocolate chips after pulling out of the iron.

For the strawberry sauce...

1 Pint strawberries (I just pulled out frozen strawberries out of the freezer the night before, they worked great)
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cool just enough for you to be able to blend. I used my hand blender in the pan but you could transfer it to a blender. Blend until you get the consistence you like. I made it with a little bit of chunks which was perfect for us!!

(Thanks mom for the recipe for Our Best Bites)
