Waffle Brownies

This recipe came from a friend while we were living in married student housing while my husband was getting his degree. Unfortunately, I can't remember who I got it from!

I didn't have time to cook any, yet. Possibly Sunday. But here is the recipe for all of you who want to try it at home.

What you'll need:

* 1/2 cup butter
* 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
* 3/4 cup granulated sugar
* 2 eggs
* 1 tablespoon water
* 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 2/3 cup chopped pecans - small (or any other kind of nut you may want)
Also - omit the nuts if you don't want them. Add choc chips if you want.


1. Preheat waffle iron.
2. Melt butter in a sauce pan. Remove from heat and stir in cocoa. Mix in the sugar, eggs and water. Add the flour and salt, beating well. Stir in the nuts.
3. In each area of the waffle iron, add 1 well rounded spoonful. Cook brownie in waffle iron as you would cook waffles. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, or glaze with confectioners glaze, or peanut butter, or choc fudge icing, or german chocolate, or strawberry jam or.... I think you get the picture. Frost with anything you want or even sandwich two together with your favorite ice cream!
