Food Daddy Foodie Joanne wrote to tell us how much she and her family loved the original Brownie Waffle. She and her niece, I was told, were hoping to find a S’mores Waffle in their future.
Be careful what you wish for, Joanne…
This one took a bit of experimenting, and I went back to the Iron half a dozen times until I came back to my original recipe.
Once again harking back to “the problem with cake” on a waffle iron, there are considerations of fat and sugar content, moisture of the batter, and blah blah blah. In any event, I wanted something for you gals and guys to try that would be delicious first and foremost, easy enough to make, and the right consistency to cook and hold together. I found that if you cook these until they are just set (there’s really little else to cook but the batter binding it) and turning golden, YOU’LL be golden. So the iron setting I’ve recommended is MEDIUM. And instead of making too delicate a crumb with the addition of fat, we add the fat after it cooks, by brushing on melted butter.
Umm… YUM, gang.
2 Sleeves (18 whole) Graham crackers
1 Cup Bisquick
1 Cup +2 Tbsp. milk
1/2 tsp. Salt
3/4 Cup brown sugar
2 Cups mini marshmallows
1 Cup semi-sweet (or milk) chocolate morsels
1/2 Stick (4 Tbsp.) butter, melted
Additional mini marshmallows, or Marshmallow Fluff, ice cream, and chocolate syrup (for garnish, if desired)
Waffle Iron Setting/Cook Time: MEDIUM
Break up the graham crackers and set them in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, combine Bisquick, milk, egg and salt just until combined. Add to graham crackers and toss to coat. Let the mixture sit for five minutes.
Add the brown sugar, marshmallows and chocolate, and fold them into the mixture.
Grease the waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray, and spoon batter into center of waffle segments or wedges, leaving room for the batter to spread slightly. Close iron and cook, checking at medium cook time or about 3 minutes.
When waffle is set and golden and easily removable (add more cook time if you need), brush melted butter over each, and remove to serving plate.
Add garnishes of your desire, or serve plain. With a glass of cold milk or hot chocolate. Throw a few pine cones around the living room and watch “Friday the 13th” and you’ll feel like you’re camping in the middle of the woods.
And someone’s watching you. But throw one of these at him and he’ll be so distracted you’ll be able to make a clean getaway. I freakin’ didn’t see it coming that it could be sweet Betsy Palmer. Whoda thunk it.
