Serves: 2-4 waffles
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup dark cocoa powder
  • 2 TBS packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 eggs, separated at room temperature
  • 1 cup buttermilk at room temperature
  • ¼ cup vegetable or canola oil
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, mix together flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In a second bowl, whisk together egg yolks, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla extract.
  3. Gently add the dry ingredients to the wet in 2-3 additions, stirring lightly until just combined. Do not overmix.
  4. Fold in chopped chocolate pieces.
  5. In a clean bowl, use a hand mixer to whip egg whites until soft peaks form.
  6. Very gently fold egg whites into batter.
  7. Add batter to a heated and greased waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer's instructions (will vary on size and depth of waffle iron or maker).
  8. Top hot waffles with Peeps and serve immediately. If layering, allow the waffles to cool completely so that the marshmallows don't immediately melt. Just before serving, heat the waffles in an oven set to 200F until the marshmallows begin to melt, or heat in microwave in 15 second bursts.
