Chocolate Crunch Waffles with Caramel Sauce and Ice Cream

  • Active Time 15m
  • Total Time 15m

Serves 2


  • For the Caramel Sauce:
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • For the Waffles:
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving
  • Chocolate shavings, for decoration



Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan. Stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, stirring, for 3 minutes.


Combine the melted butter and chocolate and stir vigorously until well combined. Add the sugar and egg yolk and beat well.

Sift together all the dry ingredients and add to the chocolate mixture, alternating with the milk. Beat the egg white until stiff. Fold into the chocolate mixture.

Heat a waffle iron and cook the mixture according to the manufacturer's instructions. (It is best to oil the waffle iron for this mixture, as it tends to stick.) Serve immediately with the Caramel Sauce, vanilla ice cream and shavings of chocolate.
