Homemade Chocolate Waffles with fresh Strawberries are easy to make and perfect for a family breakfast or brunch!

Homemade Chocolate Waffles

In my house, we try to have at least one large breakfast or brunch on the weekends. We get so busy that it’s nice to have a large meal, just in case we end up eating dinner later than usual. And whenever there’s a special occasion, I like to make the breakfast or brunch a little extra special.

These homemade chocolate waffles are easy to make. The nice thing about these waffles, besides the fact that they taste amazing, is that they freeze well, so they’re perfect for reheating on busy weekday mornings — just  pop them into the toaster for a couple of minutes, and breakfast is served!

We like to set up a mini waffle station, complete with whipped cream, chocolate chips and just about anything else the kids can think of. This way, people can help themselves and build their own waffles just the way they like them.

 It’s the perfect way to start the day!
