Place the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk to blend. Add the milk, eggs and vanilla. Stir with a whisk until well blended and smooth. Stir in melted butter. Let batter stand 5 minutes. Preheat Cuisinart® Waffle Iron on setting #4. When preheated, green indicator light will illuminate. Stir chocolate morsels and chopped walnuts/pecans into batter. Pour 2 cups of batter along center of lower grid. Let batter spread out from center slightly – for 5 to 10 seconds. Close lid of waffle iron – green indicator light will turn off. When green indicator light turns on again, waffles are ready. Remove waffles using a heat-proof plastic spatula. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
