  • A pinch of fine salt
  • 4 ounces of chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate

Then There Is The Sundae Topping:

  • Some whipped cream
  • A serving of caramel sauce
  • Multicolored sugar sprinkles

Then all you need is a waffle iron. Preferably a Belgian or Belgian style waffle maker that will deliver the best results. On their own the waffles and the topping are nice enough yet put them together and gain a great combination.

Cooking Directions For The Brownie Sundaes

To begin with set the waffle iron to medium – high heat prior to preheating it. Preheating the waffle maker speeds up the cooking time. Then also preheat the oven to 200 degrees F to keep the waffles warm (after they have been cooked).

Then put the flour, the cocoa powder and also 1/8 teaspoon of salt into a small bowl once this mix has been sifted. Then set the bowl to one side after all has been thoroughly mixed together.

Now put half the chocolate as well as all of the butter into a medium sized saucepan heated over a medium amount of heat. Then stir the mix until it is fully melted and also smooth in texture, which generally takes five minutes to do. Then take the saucepan off the heat, and allow it to cool slightly. Now gently stir in the sugar plus the eggs. After that put in the flour mixture alongside the rest of the chocolate stirring till the point when it combines.

To prevent the mixture from sticking brush both the top and the bottom of the waffle iron with butter. Put in enough mixture to make the waffle iron three quarters full (so the top of the iron can be seen). Then gently shut the lid and cook until the waffles are crispy and cooked through, which takes an average of 4 to 6 minutes. Cooked waffles can be kept warm in the oven at 200 degrees F, or simply by covering in foil. Store on a plate until all of the waffles are ready. Then add the sundae topping according to taste.

In the unlikely event that there are any waffles left these can be placed in resealable plastic bags and put in the freezer once they have cooled down.
