Course: Cookie Iron / Waffle CookiesCuisine: ItalyDifficulty: Medium

A chocolate version of the classic Italian pizzelle. Pizzelles are cookies that are made in a special pizzelle iron (see note*, below). They are similar to waffles, but thinner and crisper and more cookie-ish. In Italy, they’re popular at Easter and Christmas and are often made for wedding celebrations.


  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 ounces (2 squares) unsweetened baking chocolate


  • Beat together eggs and sugar; set aside. In a another bowl sift together flour and baking powder. In a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water, melt the butter and chocolate and stir until well blended. Set aside to cool. Add vanilla and chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and blend thoroughly. Add the flour to the the chocolate mixture and mix thoroughly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about an hour. To bake the pizzelles, refer to the instructions accompanying your specific pizzelle iron.
  • If you no longer have these instructions, generally you heat the iron and brush the iron with butter or oil. Drop about a tablespoon of batter onto the iron and close. The cookie should be done in about 30 – 45 seconds. Carefully remove the pizzelle from the iron.
