Dark Chocolate Pizzelle

40 mins to make, makes 24

Ingredients

Vegetarian

Refrigerated

  • 1 Egg

Baking & Spices

  • 3/4 cup All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 cup Brown sugar
  • 2 1/3 tbsp Cocoa powder, unsweetened dark
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract

Dairy

  • 5 tbsp Butter, unsalted

Instructions

  1. Add flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder in a bowl and stir to combine.
  2. In a separate bowl, add egg and brown sugar and mix on medium speed until mixture is smooth and has thickened, approx. one minute. Change the mixer speed to low and slowly pour in melted butter and vanilla extract until just combined.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl with the wet ingredients and mix until just combined, approx. 15 seconds, taking care not to overmix.
  4. Heat your pizzelle iron to your desired level (I like mine medium to medium-high crispness, so I selected around 3 1/2 on the iron's "1 to 5" crispness scale). I brushed the top and bottom of the iron with a small amount of cooking spray to ensure there wouldn't be any sticking.
  5. Add batter to the center of the bottom grid and repeat for the remaining grids in your iron. As the batter will spread when you close the iron, do not completely cover the pizzelle grid with batter. My iron produces 4-inch full-sized pizzelle and the accompanying booklet suggests adding 1 1/2 - 2 tsp batter. Adjust to less if you're looking for smaller pizzelle.

Pizzelle & Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Cream Sandwich

Vegetarian, Gluten free

Baking & Spices

  • 1 Delallo vanilla pizzelles

Nuts & Seeds

Directions:

  1. Gently scoop ice cream onto the pizzelle. This works best if ice cream is left to soften, as cookies are very delicate. On another pizzelle, spread chocolate hazelnut; the spread can be warmed for easier application.
  2. We used a thick layer of chocolate hazelnut spread, a 3/4-inch layer of ice cream and dipped the edges in chopped hazelnuts. For best results, individually wrap sandwiches and freeze.

  2. Mix in the flour and baking powder with a silicon spatula until smooth and free of lumps. Batter will be very thick and almost dough-like.
  3. Warm up and grease (if required) your pizzelle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions. Use a small cookie scoop to scoop the pizzelle batter onto the center of the iron. Or you can also place the batter in a large piping bag and pipe the batter.
  4. Depending on your pizzelle iron, it will take about 40 – 45 seconds to cook the pizzelles. Gently lift the pizzelles out of the iron with a spatula and place them on a straight surface so they are flat when they cool. Snip any excess dough around the edges with a park of kitchen shears. Pizzelles will cool completely in a matter of seconds. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
