Emma adding cute sprinkles to her waffle.

This recipe is so easy that my little eight year old friend Emma helped make these chocolate waffles. We used a cake mix to keep everything simple and the glaze is nothing to whip up. We didn’t even pull out a mixer for the batter, just mixed it by hand. Even with these waffles being super simple to make they got rave reviews…easy and delicious.

Here’s my Notes

1)You can use any topping for these waffles, we used sprinkles and whipped cream but the possibility are endless.

2)Use your favorite chocolate cake mix. I love the Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix by Duncan Hines.

3)Depending on how thick you want your glaze add more milk if u want a thinner glaze.
