Chocolate Spelt Waffles with Berry Compote

Add a little Lindt magic to your weekend brunch with these indulgent spelt flour chocolate waffles featuring our exquisite Excellence 45% Cocoa Milk Chocolate. Utterly irresistible served warm with a scoop of melting vanilla ice cream and fruity raspberry compote.

 

Chocolatier’s Tip

The exact amount of sugar for the compote will depend on the sweetness of your raspberries. If you don’t have a waffle maker, you can cook the batter in a griddle pan brushed with a little oil for a few minutes on both sides.
