When Cost Plus World Market asked me to make a special recipe for Valentine’s day for their blog, I had this recipe in mind already, because 1. I love waffles. 2 I had my eye on this adorable retro waffle maker for quite some time now and I was trying to find an excuse to buy it and 3. Did I mention I love waffles?
Strawberries are seen in many Valentine’s recipes, the chocolate dipped strawberry is synonymous with Valentine’s day so I decided to do a little play on the chocolate dipped strawberry with chocolate waffles. My family and I love strawberries and waffles as it is and with making the waffles chocolate really makes these extra tasty and decadent.
The retro waffle iron makes a thinner waffle than my belgian waffle maker so it didn’t take as much batter, and doesn’t take as much butter or oil to season. I made sure it was well heated before I added in the batter and after a few trial and error waffles with batter spilling out I got the right amount so I wouldn’t have any batter loss. These thinner waffles make for better stacking too.
I also love whipped cream with waffles but for these I amped up that whipped cream with mixing it with marshmallow fluff and strawberry jam. I was having a hard time staying away from this delicious concoction. I kept dipping strawberries into it and then straight into my mouth. The strawberry fluff filling definitely doubles as a delicious dip for fruit as well as a filling for these waffle stacks. It would probably be most excellent as a cake filling as well.
