Gofres with cherries and chocolate {food matters project}

This week’s Food Matters Project recipe calls for Chocolate Cherry Panini. Um, ok. Done!

Instead of a sandwich, I tweaked it a bit to make Gofres. As a student studying in Spain, I encountered my first Gofre on a weekend trip to Barcelona. Gofre may literally translate to “waffle”, but in Barcelona these are not your average breakfast waffles…they are loaded up and topped with all sorts of goodness! Enter, Cherry Chocolate Gofres!

Then, add semisweet chocolate chips…

Melt the chocolate chips onto the Waffle. Add chopped and pitted cherries. Then, devour the tart and sweet goodness!
