Chocolate hazelnut waffles are indulgent. They are chocolaty, nutty, and so delicious. They are garnished chocolate hazelnut spread and chopped hazelnuts to make them even more delicious. a

Should Waffle Batter Be Thick Or Thin

These chocolate hazelnut waffles are Belgian-style waffles which means they are thick. I prefer thicker waffles. 

However, if you prefer thinner waffles, you can thin the batter out by whisking in milk a tablespoon at a time until the batter reaches your desired consistency.

Can You Make Waffles The Night Before

Yes, you can make these chocolate waffles ahead of time. You can cook them the night before and reheat them in the morning.

Is It Better To Use Oil Or Butter For Waffles

Most times, I use coconut oil to make waffles. It makes the waffles a little bit healthier. 

You can use oil or butter to make waffles. The butter will make the waffles a bit richer. However, there is no difference in the flavor. 

How To Store Chocolate Hazelnut Waffles

Let the chocolate waffles cool completely. Store the waffles in an air-tight container for 3-4 days.  

You can also freeze the chocolate hazelnut waffles. Place them onto a baking sheet in an even layer. Freeze the chocolate hazelnut waffles for 1-2 hours until they are frozen solid. 

Take the chocolate hazelnut waffles out of the freezer. Place them into a ziplock bag. Store the chocolate hazelnuts in the freezer for up to a month.
