Recipe for Hyperactivity

For everyone out there that wants super hyperactive children like mine, make things like this for dinner.

That's right, chocolate waffles with chocolate syrup. They wanted chocolate milk too, but I've got to draw the line SOMEWHERE, right?

Here's Sammy in a stupor from the sugar high. We only do this about 3 times a week year, so they've got to load up when we do.

But see, no one is complaining! It's even plate-lickin' good.

Why of course I'll share the recipe! I know you're dying to make some too.


½ c. butter (melted)
6 Tbsp. cocoa
¾ c. sugar
2 eggs
1 c. flour
1 tsp. vanilla

Blend butter and cocoa together, add the rest of the ingredients and beat until smooth. Batter will be thick. Cook 1-3 minutes. Doesn’t make very many, so you’ll probably want to at least double this.

Another great dinner idea I got from my aunt (she has 8 wonderful children, so if she does it it's as good as gospel) is to make regular waffles and top them with ice cream, strawberries, and whipped cream. Great for hot summer days, and yummy!!! Wait a minute - we'll have to try that with the chocolate waffles too!


  1. No wonder you are the coolest mom ever!

  2. That sounds like Bill Cosby's Chocolate Cake for Breakfast bit. "Dad is great, gives us the chocolate cake". I'm sure you're kids are singing the same tune.

  3. You realize I won't be able to read your blog if you insist on posting things like this, right? I have been having major sugar cravings lately!

  4. Clint, the kids were way too busy eating to be singing (see my "Potion" post, the big family bit). But if they were, they would most definitely be singing that song.

    Lara, maybe you could throw it in a blending with some spinach. Just a thought? :) I'm really going to try that sometime (with fruit not chocolate waffles). Hey, I have spinach in the fridge right now...

  5. Thank you have now made my life complete. Well complete in a chocolate sense maybe. My friend's mom used to make chocolate waffle 'cookies' and I was craving them the other day...but knew not where to turn.

  6. Kathryn, I am here to serve. :)

  7. Tried these tonight...we are still reeling from the sugar high. BTW, we topped them with cool whip. MMMM.

  8. Kat - But it's a really good sugar high, right?
