I work at Outback Steak House in Owings Mills. They usually get new menu items and around Christmas time they got a cookies and cream, chocolate waffle sundae. I’m not exactly a chocolate lover, so I never tried it. However, one day, I had the worst migraine after working a rough, long shift. I decided to cave and try a bite of the sundae my co-worker had got. I took a big spoonful and closed my eyes tightly, expecting the chocolate to be bitter and not enjoyable. However, when the dessert reached my taste buds I fell in love. I felt the pounding in my head dull a little as the heavenly chocolate went down my throat.
The only problem was that it was the last day to order it and there was no way I’d ever have it again. When I figured this out, is when my obsession started. I tried recipe after recipe trying to find the perfect match to the Outback recipe that had started an addiction in everyone that had tried it. When I found it, I just had to share it to the world. This recipe is now my saving grace. Being a college student that works a lot and goes to school full-time, as well as trying to keep up my social life, I get stressed out a lot. These amazing waffle sundaes helps ease my stress and makes my kitchen smell delicious when I make it after a long night at work.
What you will need:
- Any kind of waffle maker, but you will need a waffle maker
- 1 cup butter
- 4 eggs
- 1 ½ cups sugar
- ½ cup cocoa
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup water or milk (milk in this recipe makes them fluffier)
Now, plug the waffle iron in so it heats up while you mix your batter. Make sure the iron is on a paper towel so there isn’t an overflow of batter.
Melt the butter then mix in the eggs, vanilla and milk (or water).
In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients. Next, mix all ingredients together. Then, pour batter in iron. Usually, the iron will take 50 to 60 seconds to cook the waffle, but some differ. Read the directions that come with your waffle iron.
Once waffle is done you can do many things with it. My favorite is to put cookies and cream ice cream on top or just vanilla ice cream with chopped Oreos. Whipped cream and hot fudge is also delicious. Otherwise, you can add just chocolate syrup if it’s a breakfast treat. Either way, be careful because these are absolutely addicting.
