  1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, powdered buttermilk, baking powder, and baking soda. In a separate bowl, whip the cream using an electric mixer; stir in milk, egg yolks, and melted butter. Stir the milk mixture into the dry ingredients until smooth. In a clean glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites and chocolate chips into the batter using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon.
  2. Preheat a waffle iron, and coat with cooking spray. Spoon batter onto the hot iron, and cook until there is no longer steam coming out and the waffles are light brown.

Sinful, but absolutely delicious. Next time I'll make it without chocolate chips. Just my personal preference.

I have to say that these are practically foolproof. My three year old helped me make them and I completely breezed past the part of the recipe that said to beat the egg whites separately (oops)....

Very good, skipped beating the egg white separately, and it was still nice and light. If I have more time next time I will. Didn't have mini chips, so I chopped up regular ones in the food pro...

Delicious! It took a little bit longer to prepare than other waffle recipes I've tried, but the results were definitely worth it! Husband LOVED them! These will be the only waffles I make from n...
