So, what is a chaffle?  It is a combination of cheese, egg, and almond flour that is cooked in a mini waffle maker.  I use this one from Amazon to make my chaffles. Please note that if you order the waffle maker from me, I get a commission from Amazon!  The cheese makes it crispy and the egg and almond flour combination make it bread-like.  Chaffles are used for hamburger buns, breakfast, and dessert!  It all depends on what you add to the ingredient list!

These chocolate chaffles are a perfect low carb dessert.  Please note:  The carb count on the recipe includes the whole batch of the cream cheese topping.  I only use a small portion of the topping, just for taste.
