Chocolate Covered Waffle Bites Recipe – Breakfast Chocolate Treat
Callebaut is trying to get chefs to think differently about how they incorporate chocolate in to their desserts and to think outside dinner because while chocolate is a popular dessert, there’s more to it than that. Chocolate is also proving popular first thing in the morning – according to the research, nearly half of people would order a breakfast that included chocolate, prompting the need for caterers to offer more varied breakfast dishes such as waffles, pancake, muffins and pastries.
Robert Harrison, Sales Director, Callebaut, comments: “With the breakfast eating out market recording steady growth over recent years, there is a key opportunity for caterers to increase morning sales, especially if they introduce chocolate to the mix.”
Now of course a sales director would want a chef to buy more chocolate but as s consumer let me just say that I fully support chocolate for breakfast and really every meal of the day 😉
Apparently if you completely enrobe these they can last for ages. I don’t see these lasting beyond the few minutes it takes to get them in my gob 😉
10g baking powder
You’ll need a waffle mold from Lakeland or somewhere.
1. Melt the butter and mix it in with beaten eggs and milk. So, you know, beat the eggs and milk first and then melt the butter and mix it in but make sure you’ve let it cool a touch.
2. Mix together the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder and whisk well into the above mixture. I usually use a separate bowl and sift everything together and then whisk in well because we’re making a batter, not a cake 😉
3. Pour the mixture into the waffle moulds and place onto a baking tray. I think these are available at Lakeland but I’m sure you’ll be able to find some somewhere (maybe in the back of your mum or auntie’s cupboard).
4. Cook in a 220°C preheated oven for 8-9 minutes.
5. Remove from oven and take the waffles out of the mould.
6. Place the waffles back onto the baking tray (waffle side up) and cook for a further 4 minutes or until golden.
7. When the waffles have cooled, break them into pieces. Big pieces I would suggest but you know your family best.
8. Melt the chocolate and dip the pieces of waffle into the chocolate so that the waffle is fully coated.
9. Decorate with sprinkles or by piping chocolate, allow to set, and serve.
