Mexican Hot Chocolate Churro Waffles

It's Wednesday again,  and that means breakfast for dinner!  I woke up this morning with a 4° feel outside.  I didn't feel like the standard waffle, so I went on a search.  Pinterest led me to churro waffles,  but I took it one step further by adding chocolate!  I love a good cup of Mexican Hot Cocoa,  so why not have it as a waffle?

Waffle batter:
2 eggs
2 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 cups warm milk with 1 tbsp vinegar added
2 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup melted butter
    *           *           *
1 tsp cocoa powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups flour

1/2 cup melted butter , in own bowl.
*   *
1 cup sugar
1/8 cup cinnamon
1 tbsp cocoa powder


1. In a large bowl , mix first five ingredients.
2. Add remaining dry batter ingredients, mix until well incorporated. If the batter is too thick, add  some water to help pour more easily.
3. In a hot waffle iron that has been greased, pour in just under 2/3 cup   of batter, cook according to waffle iron instructions.
4. In another bowl, place cinnamon, sugar, and   cocoa.
5. As soon as you remove the cooked waffle from the iron, brush with butter, and toss with coating.

6. Repeat with all waffles.

Makes 6 waffles.
