In a jug, mix together the eggs, milk and oil until just combined.

Stir in the chopped Lindt EXCELLENCE 45% Cocoa Milk Chocolate until evenly distributed throughout the batter. Set aside.
Tip the raspberries into a small saucepan, add the water and 1 tablespoon of sugar, and slowly bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes - or until thickened. Taste to check the sweetness (add a little more sugar if necessary). Keep warm.
Lightly grease the waffle iron by brushing with a little oil. Pour in a ladleful of batter, close and cook for 3-4 minutes (the exact amount of time will depend on the amount of batter and size of waffle maker. Repeat with the remaining batter (see tip).
Serve the warm waffles with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, warm raspberry compote and a square of Lindt EXCELLENCE 45% Cocoa Milk Chocolate.
