Chocolate Wafers


Crispy, crunchy and loaded with chocolate flavours. Those chocolate wafers are perfect ANYTIME sweet treat! Serve with ice cream, or sandwich them together with whipped cream. They're also great by themselves.
Adapted from Smitten Kitchen


  • 200 g All purpose flour
  • 70 g Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 200 g Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 180 g Unsalted butter, slightly softened and cut into smaller pieces
  • 3 tbsp Whole milk
  • 1 tsp Pure vanilla extract
  1. Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, salt and baking soda in the bowl of food processor and pulse to mix thoroughly. Add in butter, milk and vanilla extract and process until the mixture clumps around the blade or the sides of the bowl.
  2. Place the mixture on the work surface and form into a log about 14 inches/35 cm long. Wrap the log in wax paper or foil and refrigerate until firm, at least one hour, or overnight.
  3. Position the racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven and preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Cut the log of dough into slices a 1/8 inch/3 mm thick and place them 1 inch/2.4 cm apart on the lined sheets (cookies will spread). Sprinkle the top lightly with granulated sugar if desired.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the the cookies puff up Remove from oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. These cookies may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks.

Tina 5/6/11 21:20

Thanks for posting this! There is only one brand I found on the grocery shelves. It was a tiny 4 inch box costing nearly six dollars-they are proud of them. I am sure that this recipe makes more delicious cookies than those at a much cheaper cost.

I often have one fabulous piece of dark chocolate every day for a pick-me-up. These wafers would serve as well. Of course, I would have to hide them from the family if I wanted them to last more than a day. By my count, I see a sweet stack for each of us!

I used to buy boxes of chocolate wafers and eat them plain. They were my favorite boxed chocolate, but they are very hard to find these days; so I am grateful that you have posted a recipe that will be a great solution for my predicament!
