Chocolate Pizzelles

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

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...

Chocolate Pizzelles


  • 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...

  9. pizzelles were one of my moms go to desserts! I love the smell of them and they taste amazing, esp with ice cream inbetween! I bet she never thought to make chocolate ones, I am passing this recipe along to her! Found this on the wonderful Wednesday blog hop and these look wonderful :-)

  11. Found this while looking for ideas for a Mother's Day brunch. I have an iron, but had forgotten all about it. Used to make them every year at Christmas! I'd like to roll them and make a cone filled with something delish! - any ideas for a filling would be greatly appreciated.
