Death by Chocolate Waffles

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
3 ounces semisweet chocolate
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 1/4 cups whole milk
2 eggs, beaten until frothy

Preheat waffle iron.

In a large bowl, sift together flour, whole wheat flour, cocoa, baking powder and cinnamon. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan over very low heat, melt butter, chocolate and sugar. Whisk to smooth, remove from heat, then whisk in milk and eggs.

Make a well in dry ingredients, pour in chocolate mixture and blend just until everything is combined. Let batter stand for several minutes. Pour about 1/2 to 3/4 cup batter into very hot waffle iron and bake until waffles are golden and crisp. Serve hot.

Makes 4 waffles.
