Double Chocolate Waffles with Fresh Strawberries and Whipped Cream

This Double Chocolate Waffle recipe studded with chocolate chips and topped with strawberries and whipped cream is the ultimate special occasion breakfast treat. Bonus points if someone serves it to you in bed!

Double Chocolate Waffles with Strawberries and Whipped Cream

I think the Mr. and I’s love language is breakfast. We loooove breakfast. It’s the one meal where it’s acceptable to essentially eat dessert as a main course. And then supplement it with a side of bacon. Seriously, breakfast. You’re amazing.

We’ve done the fancy Valentine’s Day dinner thing before, but this year I think I’ve officially converted to the Valentine’s Day breakfast. No pretense, no reservations, no tight skirts. Just a lazy morning, the smell of waffles steaming in the iron, and pj time with my love.

And since we’re essentially eating checkerboard cake for breakfast, why not go all out and make it chocolate?

Double Chocolate Waffles with Strawberries and Whipped Cream

I thought the double chocolate flavor of these may be overpowering (especially first thing in the morning), but it turned out to be just right. The waffles have a hint of cocoa flavor that’s highlighted with little pockets of melty semi sweet chocolate chips. The Mr. thought it would be great with slices of fresh strawberries and bananas. He’s brilliant like that.

I thought it would be perfect with a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.

We make a good team.

Treat yourself to a lazy breakfast in this Valentine’s Day. Invite your favorite gals over or just spend the morning relaxing with this big, chocolatey waffle. It’s bound to be a good day.

Fluffy double chocolate buttermilk waffles are layered with strawberries, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce for a decadent breakfast treat.


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • Strawberries, bananas, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce for serving


  1. Dig your waffle maker out from the back of your cabinets and preheat it. I usually put a paper towel or wax paper under the waffle maker to make clean up easier.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugars, and cocoa. In another bowl whisk together oil, eggs, vanilla, and buttermilk.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Batter will be lumpy.
  4. Depending on the size of your waffle iron, you may need more or less batter. I used about a ½ cup for one waffle. Pour batter onto hot waffle iron then scatter evenly with a handful of chocolate chips. Close the waffle iron and let cook--it could take anywhere from 4-8 minutes. I find that mine are just about perfect once the steam has mostly subsided.
  5. Carefully remove waffle from iron and place in a single layer on a baking sheet in a 200 degree oven to keep warm.
  6. To serve, top waffles with slices of fresh strawberries, bananas, a swirl of whipped cream, and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. This made 5 waffles in my iron, but if you have a large Belgian waffle iron, it will probably only make 3.

    Valentine´s breakfast is a neat idea, and I wouldn´t mind having these for breakfast any day of the year! They look amazing!

    Breakfast IS amazing – that’s why I love eating it at any time of day. Breakfast for dinner? Yes please! These chocolate waffles look soooo good. I don’t think there can be such a thing as too much of a chocolate taste, even when it’s early in the morning 😉
