Berwick branch Manager, Barbara Lipp has made these mini marvels for your tasting pleasure.The recipe is from:  Style at Home - Magazine  December 2016. Drop in today at the Berwick library for a sample.
“My variation will be to just drizzle them with semi-sweet chocolate and toasted almonds instead of all the fresh fruit, lavender crème-fraiche and raspberry coulis.”
Prep & cook time - 1 1/2 hours makes 32
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4   cup cocoa powder, sifted
2     tbsp granulated sugar
1     tbsp baking powder
3/4   tsp baking soda
1/2   tsp salt
3      eggs
1 3/4 cups buttermilk
1/2   cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2   tsp pure almond extract
100g      dark or semi-sweet chocolate, melted
1/4   cup sliced almonds, toasted
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, batter and almond extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until combined.
Using 3/4 cup for each waffle pour the batter onto a hot non-stick waffle iron; close lid and cook until the batter is crisp and golden and the steam stops , about 5 minutes. Cut each waffle into four pieces; drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with the almonds.
