Author Notes: Growing up, Pizzelle was a "must" during the holiday season; my grandmother made orange-anise Pizzelle and I wanted chocolate, so here it is. These crisp chocolate snowflake wafers are excellent on their own, as well as rolled and piped with a cream filling. Oh, and a Chocolate Vodka Martini makes an excellent accompaniment! —lapadia
Makes about 50 cookies
- Tool needed: Villa Ware Pizzelle Baker
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon Espresso Powder (Medaglia D' Oro)
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup salted butter melted and cooled
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 1 tablespoon Creme de Cacao
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
- 2 cups of flour (all purpose)
- Preheat the pizzelle baker.
- In a large mixing bowl, add and whisk to incorporate the sugar and Espresso powder.
- Mix in the eggs, one at a time.
- Add and mix the cooled butter, vanilla and crème de cacao.
- Sift the baking powder, cocoa and flour together.
- Add the flour mixture to the sugar/egg mixture 1 cup at a time; mix to make a light enough dough to drop onto the pizzelle baker.
- Drop a heaping teaspoonful of batter in center of each grid pattern to make full size pizzelles.
- Hold handles together firmly during baking, note: some bakers have a clip to hold the handles firmly together. Trim off any overflow if needed.
- Baking time is 30 to 45 seconds, will vary slightly because of consistency of the batter or the amount of dough used. Let cool completely on a rack, then store in an airtight container.
