We're thrilled to present a five-part series of recipes created by Joanne Bruno of Eats Well With Others that demonstrates the versatility of pairing chocolate and beer. Each recipe includes our baking range and local craft beer as ingredients, and focuses on various meals of the day. Chocolate and beer for breakfast? Start your day off with these Chocolate Stout Waffles.

We are kicking it off with breakfast or, as you might know it, “THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY”.

And what better place to start than with chocolate stout waffles! They are rich, with deep cocoa notes from both Divine’s cocoa powder and Brooklyn Brewery’s limited edition Black Chocolate Stout. And then I also topped them with a chocolate-peanut butter syrup. Oops. (Not.)

So while they are probably not an every day kind of breakfast choice, when you’re looking for something to make your morning a little extra special, these are it.Plus they could totally double as dessert.

Though no judgment if you eat them for breakfast (or…lunch. As we did.)
