Chocolate Drizzled Pizzelles

I saw this simple idea at a craft fair recently and loved it! Pizzelles are elevated to an even more festive level with a pretty drizzle of melted chocolate. I think the key is to keep the hole in the icing bag as small as possible, it's the fine drizzle that compliments the delicate cookies. If you have a steady hand (and a lot more patience than me:@) you can trace around the designs in the cookies. I also think colored candy melts might be a fun idea too.
I would run the chocolate off the edges of the cookies with each pass the next time. Placing them on wax paper makes for easy clean-up.

Another thing I do is add nonparallels to the batter, they add little bursts of red and green.
Stir them in right before you start baking the cookies.
And the tip I always share for Pizzelles is, sub 2-3 Tblsp cornstarch for some of the flour, it makes lighter, crisper cookies.
There's a Chocolate Pizzelle recipe here and Vanilla one here.

Remember, Christmas calories don't count and have a happy day:@)

  2. I'm very sure it's just my imagination, but I think such drizzled chocolate always tastes better than a regular chocolate bar. Not possible, I know, but it's true LOL. xx

  5. I'll be making Pizzelles soon, Lynn, and it trying the cornstarch sub that you like. The addition of drizzled chocolate makes a festive touch and I love the nonpareils for pretty color.

  10. Oooo, YUMMO! I just made pizzelles for the first time in my life, Lynn. I bought the iron that does 4 little circles, but I like the look of yours MUCH better! Very pretty.
    I bet that new Jiff Salted Caramel Hazelnut chocolate spread would be delicious on these, too. Would have to soften it up a bit though, as it doesn't *drizzle*
    Thanks for the idea!!
