My Waffle Iron = My New KBF

I have recently fallen in love with my waffle iron. Prior to a few weekends ago, in the 15 years I've had this waffle iron, I think I had used it once. Then, a couple of Sundays ago, I needed to make cookies for my younger son's piano recital, but didn't feel like standing around waiting for cookies to bake. I rummaged through my recipe box and found this recipe.
The cookies turned out great! The recipe didn't make too many cookies: just under two dozen, so exactly the right amount for the dozen required at the recital and some left for our supper that night. I decided to make some more last night,
but this time I scrounged up some Rolos left over from Easter and melted them on top before spreading with a little chocolate frosting.
Chocolate-Rolo Waffle Cookies:
2 squares baking chocolate, melted and cooled
1/3 c. butter
2 eggs
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
approximately 10 Rolos
chocolate frosting
Mix butter, eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Add in flour and salt. Fold in melted chocolate until completely combined. Drop by spoonful onto hot waffle iron. After taking hot cookies off of waffle iron (2-3 minutes), place half of 1 Rolo on top. Let the Rolo sit for a few minutes, then spread around with a knife and a tsp. of chocolate frosting. Cool and enjoy!
