I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Holstein Housewares. I received product samples to facilitate this post well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Chocolate Waffle Recipe 

You don’t need an excuse to whip up this chocolate waffle recipe, but it just so happens that Valentine’s Day is this week!  What better way is there to make your loved ones feel special, than with homemade chocolate waffles?

But these waffles aren’t just for Valentine’s Day.  They’re so delicious and easy to make, you can enjoy this chocolate waffle recipe all year long!  (And if you have kids, I am sure they’ll be asking for it again, and again).

I originally got this idea for a homemade chocolate waffle recipe, when we brought home our Holstein Heart Shaped Waffle Maker.

Elle went a little crazy when she saw it… it was pink, it made waffles, in the shape of hearts… which pretty much exceeds the requirement to become the coolest kitchen gadget she has ever seen in her life.

She was so excited to make heart shaped waffles, she talked about the waffle maker non-stop for two days, until when we were ready to make (and eat) the chocolate waffles.

She is such an enthusiastic sous chef, and I love that the #HolsteinKitchen heart shaped waffle maker got her so pumped up.  I really want her to grow up with my passion for cooking, and love for homemade food.  If I can send her off to college with a bag full of real food ingredients, and the knowledge on how to transform those ingredients into healthy meals, that would make me infinitely happy!

We had a blast creating this recipe, and it was even more fun eating it!

 Holstein has a variety of small appliances that will get your kids involved in cooking, and make it a magical process!  Spending time with your kids in the kitchen is a great time to bond, and teach them some valuable skills they can take with them when they’re ready to leave the nest.  

Holstein’s small appliances are also a great way to prepare fun novelty food for parties, holidays and other celebrations (I have my eye on their pie makers for a fun kid’s activity for Elle’s next birthday)!  You can view and purchase their innovative and high-quality small appliances (including this adorable heart shaped waffle maker) on their website, at http://www.holsteinhousewares.com/
