  • 1/2 C granulated sugar
  • zest of one orange optional
  • 3 large eggs beaten
  • 1/2 C cold water
  • 1/2 C 1 stick unsalted butter, melted and brought back to room temperature
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 3/4 C sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 C dutch process cocoa powder


  • Warm the mini waffle maker while you mix the ingredients.
  • Optionally, in a small bowl, work the orange zest into the sugar with your fingers.
  • In the bowl of the stand mixer (or bowl with hand mixer), beat the eggs and sugar together until the mixture is light.
  • Add the cold water, cooled butter, and vanilla.
  • Whisk together the flour and cocoa powder, making sure there are no lumps (I had limited time and I skipped this step. Don't do what I did. You could see the little lumps in the end product.)
  • Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture.
  • Mix on low until the batter is smooth and the chocolate color is even throughout.
  • Pour 1 tablespoon of the batter for each cookie onto the heated and greased waffle cone maker and close the top.
  • Cook according to the manufacturer’s directions, usually 30-60 seconds.
  • Gently lift with a fork or silicone spatula and transfer to a wire rack.
  • Store in a tin, not airtight, away from other cookies. They need some exposure to air to stay crispy.
