Chocolate Walnut Wafers

    30 minutes

    This is an Italian wafer biscuit called a pizzelle. It's usually made in a special patterned iron but you can use a waffle iron if you have one.

    Serves: 18 

    • 1/2 cup ground walnuts
    • 2 1/4 cups (280g) plain flour
    • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 3 eggs
    • 1 cup (220g) white sugar
    • 85g butter, melted
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla essence

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. In a medium bowl stir together the ground nuts, flour, cocoa and baking powder; set aside. In a separate bowl beat eggs on the high speed of an electric mixer, gradually add the sugar and mix until thick and yellow. Stir in the melted butter and vanilla. Gradually stir in the flour mixture, just mixing enough to combine.
    2. Heat up the waffle or pizzelle iron until a drop of water dances on the surface then slightly reduce heat. Drop 1 rounded tablespoon of batter for each wafer. Close the lid and bake for about 2 minutes, depending on your iron. Turn wafer out and trim before cooling on racks.

    I used pecans instead of the walnuts to make these chocolate pizzelles. By melting the butter in a large pan, the need for a bowl is eliminated! With or without the chocolate frosting glaze, these are good!  -  16 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Tasty but they stuck quite a bit to the iron and it took a bit to get them to come off.  -  23 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
