Step 1

**Step 1:** Beat the eggs with sugar, then gradually add the sifted flour. Next, add the vegetable oil and mix well. Tip: Ensure your eggs are at room temperature for easier blending.

Step 2

**Step 2:** Bake the waffles in a preheated waffle iron or pan, cooking both sides until golden brown. The recipe yields 8-10 full-sized waffles with a diameter of about 14cm (5.5 inches). Tip: For thicker waffles, pour more batter into the waffle iron and cut off the excess with a metal mold of 10cm (3.94 inches) diameter.

Step 3

**Step 3:** Heat the cream until hot but do not boil it. Pour it over the chocolate and let it melt completely. Mix until smooth. Grind the cream cheese at room temperature with the powdered sugar, then add the slightly cooled chocolate ganache and mix. Tip: Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature for a smoother mixture.

Step 4

**Step 4:** Pour the mass into a mold and let it stabilize for 6-8 hours. Tip: Leave the mixture in the fridge overnight for a firmer texture.

Step 5

**Step 5:** Soak the gelatin in cold water and let it swell. Combine cream cheese with cream, powdered sugar, and pistachio paste. Whip until smooth. Dissolve the gelatin and add it to the cheese mixture, then mix well. Tip: Dissolve gelatin by heating it gently in a microwave or over a hot water bath.

Step 6

**Step 6:** Pour the mixture into a mold and let it stabilize for 6-8 hours. Tip: Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature before mixing to avoid lumps.

Step 7

**Step 7:** For the chocolate sandwiches, grease the waffles with melted chocolate on one side to prevent them from becoming soggy. Add 1 teaspoon of boiled condensed milk, then cover it with chocolate filling. Repeat the assembly for the pistachio sandwiches using pistachio paste instead of condensed milk. Tip: Use a 10cm (3.94 inch) metal ring to cut the filling neatly.

Step 8

**Step 8:** Freeze the assembled sandwiches for at least 1 hour before glazing. Tip: Freezing helps the sandwiches hold their shape better during glazing.

Step 9

**Step 9:** Melt the chocolate, add the oil, and mix until smooth. Dip the sandwiches into the glaze and sprinkle with wafer crumbs or any preferred toppings. Tip: Let the glazed sandwiches set on a wire rack to avoid excess glaze pooling.

  • Why are my waffles not crispy?

    Make sure your waffle iron is preheated properly, and avoid opening it too soon. Cooking time can vary by model.

  • How thick should the waffle batter be?

    The batter should be thick enough to pour but not too runny - somewhere between pancake batter and cake batter.

  • Can I use low-fat cream cheese?

    While you can use low-fat cream cheese, the texture and creaminess of the filling might be affected.

  • How do I properly melt chocolate for the glaze?

    Melt it slowly over a double boiler or in short bursts in the microwave to avoid burning. Stir frequently!

  • Can I prepare the fillings in advance?

    Absolutely! Both the chocolate and pistachio fillings can be made a day ahead and stored in the fridge.

  • What's the best way to store leftover waffle sandwiches?

    Wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days, or freeze for longer storage.
