This CHOCOLATE WAFFLE COOKIE recipe has been a favorite of our family for many years.  It's been around for a long time--probably 30 years or so.  What I like about it is that it's so quick and easy--just make them right in your waffle iron--and each batch is done in under a minute.  We like them with vanilla icing and sprinkles on top, but you could ice them with chocolate frosting or dust them with powdered sugar. When my sister's son got married several years ago, I made hundreds of them in my heart-shaped waffle iron.  The couple's colors were mint green and brown, and so they served them with green mint chocolate chip ice cream and hot fudge sauce over the top, served on a paper lace doily on a little plate.  Since I could only make 4 at a time, each batch was smaller, but they cook in under a minute, so they worked up pretty fast.   My kids and I loved to make them when they were growing up, and now the grand kids do! One thing to be careful of when cooking--they can burn easily--and they aren't good when they are overbaked--so watch them carefully.  Keep in mind they will harden up after cooled.

1/2 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
6 Tablespoons cocoa
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix melted butter and sugar together.  Add eggs and blend.  Add cocoa, flour, and vanilla.  Mix just until blended well.  Drop by teaspoonfuls on each section of a preheated waffle iron.  Cook 50 seconds on low or medium heat, depending on your waffle iron.  Lift off with a fork.  Cool and frost.  They are also good with a dusting of powdered sugar.  If using sprinkles, sprinkle immediately so they will stick.  NOTE:  When I used my heart-shaped waffle iron, I had to use more than the teaspoon called for to make each heart.  If you're using a heart waffle iron, you will have to experiment to see how much batter to use.
