Chocolate Waffle Cookies

If you know the Whiting women, then you know that we LOVE chocolate! This is a fun recipe where you bake the cookies in your waffle iron. The texture and look of the cookie is so fun, and they are soooo heavenly! My kids have a blast helping me make them, and they love eating them even more!

1/2 c. shortening
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. cocoa
2 c. flour

Cream shortening and sugar; stir in eggs. Stir in milk and vanilla. Add cocoa and flour, 1 cup at a time. Mix well. While preparing cookie dough, heat up waffle iron. To bake, drop small teaspoonfuls of dough onto waffle iron and bake for 1-2 minutes (I did 1 min.).

3 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. cocoa
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. corn syrup
2 c. powdered sugar
3 tbsp. milk

Combine butter, cocoa, vanilla, corn syrup and powdered sugar. Stir in milk to make smooth frosting. Frost cooled cookies. Makes 2-3 dozen.

The cookies are fairly soft just cooking them a minute in the waffle iron. After I frost the cookies and let the frosting set I put them in an airtight container. This keeps the cookies melt-in-your-mouth soft. Mmmmmm! A fun and delicious treat!
