1.  Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl; whisk to blend. Add the milk, eggs and vanilla. Whisk until well blended and smooth. Stir in melted butter until completely combined. Fold in morsels and nuts. Let batter rest 5 minutes.

2. Preheat the Cuisinart® Breakfast Central to desired setting (a tone will sound when preheated).

3.  Pour 1½ heaping cups of batter onto the center of the lower grid of the preheated waffle maker; spread evenly using a heatproof spatula. Close cover of waffle maker. When tone sounds, waffles are ready. Open cover and carefully remove baked waffles. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.
