Fall is well on it’s way, and I’m excited to share these Chocolate Waffle Cookies for Halloween that your kids will surely love to help you make!  My own children will not hesitate to let me know if something I make is “thumbs up” “thumbs down” or “one up, one down.” They gave these cookies two thumbs up!  I think the idea of making cookies in a waffle iron was pretty exciting to them, but chocolate and sprinkles don’t hurt, either.

Halloween Chocolate Waffle Cookies

I wish I was better at making that cool melted chocolate look pretty, but it’s colorful nonetheless.  I used some Halloween sprinkles that included a black spider, so they fill in the waffle holes in some slots above.

Can you tell they are spiders??


I used a thicker chocolate cookie recipe, and plopped it into the waffle iron like I would batter. I did find that my deeper waffle iron cooked them better than my standard waffle iron.

Here is a shot of the back of the waffle cookies to show you that they truly are waffles.
