Chocolate Waffles with Whiskey Butter Sauce won't let you down. Sweet and boozy, you'll fall in love.
I’m a brunch person. I know that people are sharply divided on this meal, but for me, there’s no reason to turn down another excuse to eat fantastic food.
Brunch is the best of both worlds when it comes to menu offerings. No one thinks you’re weird for wanting eggs after 10:30 AM, and it’s totally legit to order a cocktail before noon.
If you want pancakes and French fries, do it. French fries are just a different form of hash browns anyway.
Now, when it comes to what I order during brunch, waffles are my go-to. Though I love crispy Belgian-style waffles topped with lots of fruit and whipped cream, I can’t resist it when other varieties are on the menu, which is probably why I continue to experiment with waffle flavors.
For the next step in my waffle revolution (waffle-ution?) I wanted to go rich and warm, creating something that would be the ultimate brunch waffle when you’re out with all your besties. The solution was obviously to add whiskey!
These chocolate waffles with whiskey butter sauce are going to blow everyone’s socks off at your next brunch. If you prefer to entertain at night, that’s cool — add some ice cream and you’ve got a bombshell of a dessert.
I added chocolate chips for extra melty rich flavor, but keep in mind that you might need to redistribute the chips as you pour the batter onto the waffle iron. You might find it easier to keep the chocolate chips nearby and just sprinkle them on top of the batter as you cook each waffle.
The sauce is delicious even without the whiskey, but if you prefer you can swap in a fruit-based sauce, such as raspberry, or even stick with the standard maple syrup. Take care to not turn the heat up too much and whisk often to prevent the eggs from separating and cooking.
If it gets a bit clumpy, just pour the sauce through a fine mesh strainer.
