Pizzelles are one of my favorite cookies, but for some reason growing up we only made them for Christmas. A few days before Easter last week, I decided to pull out my pizzelle iron and make chocolate pizzelles for my family. They are so delicious and make such a pretty presentation...
- 3 large eggs
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 stick butter, melted and cooled
- 1 3/4 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3 Tablespoons cocoa
- 3 Tablespoons additional sugar
Melt the butter and set aside.
Beat the eggs and sugar until creamy, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the melted butter.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, cocoa and additional sugar.
Slowly add to the wet butter, egg, sugar mixture until combined.
Heat the pizzelle iron and spray with a non-stick baking spray.
Place about 1 Tablespoon of batter on each grid.
Close the iron and let cook for about 30 to 40 seconds.
Remove the cookies and cool on a rack.
* * *Tip: Try to place your batter just a little bit behind the center of the pattern on the iron so you can get a more even pizzelle cookie. ***
Chocolate pizzelles are so delicious and look so pretty on a plate for Easter...
