Chocolate Waffle Christmas Cookies {Delish}


Christmas just isn’t Christmas at our house without these delicious chocolate waffle cookies frosted with homemade cream cheese frosting and sprinkled with festive yummies. It started back as far as I can remember. Mom always made them. As soon as D and I were married I began to do the same. However, there was a little twist. As a wedding gift we were given a heart-shaped waffle iron. Twenty-four years later I still use it. We now have to have these delicious Christmas goodies heart-shaped too!

Here’s another fun fact. I only make these once a year, at Christmas. Well probably twice in December because they go so quickly with a large family. So that makes them even more special. I had to share our favorite traditional cookie recipe with everyone this holiday season. I hope your family enjoys them as much as ours.


Chocolate Waffle Cookies 

4 eggs {room temperature}

1 1/2 cup sugar

Cream together and add 1 cup of melted butter or margarine

2 tsp. vanilla

In separate bowl mix 2 cups of flour

6 Tblsp. Cocoa

Slowly stir into wet mixture and blend well.

Bake on Heart Shaped Waffle Iron & set on cooling rack.

{I use a pastry brush and a little oil in the waffle iron each batch to ensure they don’t stick}

Cool on cooling rack, Frost, Sprinkle & Enjoy!

Cream Cheese Frosting

8 ounces Philadelphia Cream Cheese {room temperature}

1/2 cup butter or margarine {room temperature}

2 tsp white vanilla

16 ounces powdered sugar

Blend together until smooth.

Use to frost anything you want to taste delicious!

The following are links to my favorite products that I use to make these cookies. I’m not a huge fan of clean up so ALWAYS use parchment paper. The sheets that are cut to size for my pans are my fave. I also use real butter and Philadelphia Cream Cheese. Using top notch ingredients makes all of the difference in how the cookie tastes.

I made these and took them to a friend’s home for a get together last night and they were a huge hit. I hope your family will love them as much as ours. Merry Christmas!

12/7 Update: I’ll be sharing with Today’s Take because I know that these cookies will blow Dylan’s away! Besides, I would love a day with my favorite TV hosts to prove it.
