- Pour this into the dry ingredients, and mix just until completely blended.

- Repeat with remaining batter until you have the desired amount.
Serve with strawberries, raspberries, whip cream, maple syrups, chocolate sauce or whatever you want to top them with and enjoy!

We have provided some tips to remove chocolate stains from carpet.
Chocolate is a tricky stain to remove from carpet. It is a “combination stain” because there are several stain-causing ingredients within chocolate. This makes it that much harder to treat.
How to Remove Chocolate Stains:
Carefully remove as much of the solid portion of the spill as you can. You can use a dull butter knife to scrape the excess (if it is a hard chocolate) then blot with a paper towel. Be careful not to rub. Rubbing will force the stain further into the carpet fibers.
- After blotting as much as you can of the stain neutralize it. Mix a solution an ammonia solution. 1 tablespoon ammonia and ¾ cup of water.
- Fill a spray bottle with the ammonia solution. Saturate the stain but make sure not to soak the backing of the carpet.
- Blot with a plain white paper towel or cloth to remove excess moisture. Printed or colored paper towel or cloth may bleed onto the carpet.
- If the stain still hasn’t been lifted mix up a solution 1-quart water and ½ teaspoon dish soap. Continue applying and blotting until the stain is complete gone.
- When the stain is gone rinse with clear water and blot. It is important to rinse thoroughly. Dish soap left behind on the carpet will create residue and attack dirt.
