Jaffles always seem to flow in and out of favour over the years, but those who grew up with them in the 80s (like yours truly) will always have a special place in their heart for them.
I’m a complete vegemite and cheese jaffle fan. I only ever had Vegemite and cheese in them growing up, and those of you who know my love of Vegemite can only imagine how much I managed to lather in my jaffles. The day that vegemite and cheese singles got together to release their hybrid love child, vegemite singles, my jaffles went up a notch. Non-Australians will likely never understand the lure of Vegemite, but that’s ok, because today I’m not going anywhere near the jar of Vegemite.
I had been thinking for some time that I needed to make a quick chocolate jaffle. I mean, it is quite literally the easiest way to get a piping hot dessert in your gob in record time – with only 4 ingredients.
Ever since discovering I could make dulce de leche caramel without having a fear of exploding condensed milk cans, I always have some in my fridge (I recommend heading over to my Easy Dulce de Leche recipe post for the method) and its a winner combined with the chocolate in the jaffle. But the true star here is the loaf of brioche bread used to sandwich the filling into.
The outcome can only be described as the type of jaffle you could serve at a dinner party – Quick Chocolate and Caramel Brioche Jaffles. Keep reading below for the recipe… if you can even call it that!
Quick Chocolate and Caramel Brioche Jaffles
- 4 slices brioche bread
- 2 tablespoons dulce de leche caramel*
- 1 tablespoon toasted diced almonds
- 4 squares good quality dark chocolate
Preheat your jaffle machine.
Spread 1/2 tablespoon of caramel onto one side of each slice of brioche bread. Place two squares of chocolate in the centre of two of the slices and top with diced almonds.
Top the chocolate and almond slices with the remaining brioche slices, caramel side down and place in your jaffle machine. Toast until golden on the outside.
Enjoy, but be careful of the super hot super oozy chocolate and caramel filling!
