Pandan Waffles + Chocolate Sauce - Partnership with Hexa

Updated: Nov 9, 2022

What are the unnecessary expensive kitchen tools? To me, they are the panini press and a waffle maker. They exist for that 1 sole purpose; to make panini and waffles, respectively. They are not cheap and take up loads of space.

Tho technically, using a griddle to make waffles doesn't really count. But those grill marks would argue. Anyhow, I am using Hexa waffle mix to make these incredible pandan waffles with chocolate sauce. I had 2 huge bunch of pandan leaves I figured, why not make some homemade pandan paste and extract? And this idea popped into my head.

I usually make a big batch of this chocolate sauce. It is super useful as they are awesome on some vanilla ice cream, or if I want a quick mocha, I can just add a bit of this chocolate sauce with some brewed coffee. You can also easily double the amount given below. They can be chilled for up to 3 days or frozen for a month.
