2/3 cup sugar

4 large egg whites, at room temperature

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter, melted, plus extra for greasing the pizzelle iron

2/3 cup flour

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup mini chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the pizzelle iron to medium-high heat.
  2. Whisk the sugar, egg whites, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl until frothy. Whisk in the butter, flour, and cinnamon until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Brush the pizzelle cooking surfaces with melted butter. Spoon 1 tablespoon of batter in the center of the pizzelle iron. Close the iron and cook until deep golden, about 3 minutes. Transfer the pizzelles to a cooling rack. Cool completely. Store the pizzelles airtight at room temperature.
  4. Chef's Note: The batter can also be cooked in a preheated and lightly oiled waffle iron. Pour 1/2 cupfuls of batter into the waffle iron and cook for about 3 minutes.
