My (Not So) Secret Family Recipes:
Chocolate Pancakes

May 18, 2012

I have a secret that I want to share with you…. my family is a bunch of chocoholics!

I’ve never been a big breakfast person. I think that this recipe is why. The name “chocolate pancakes” is actually somewhat misleading. The actual pancake itself is not chocolate. Instead, it’s a chocolate sauce that is poured over the top. Deeeee-licious.
I’m going to warn you right now: THIS IS NOT A HEALTHY RECIPE. And it’s SUPER addicting. Seriously, you’ll never go back to eating syrup on your pancakes ever again.

Chocolate Pancake Sauce
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup milk
½ cup water
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon butter

Combine sugar, cocoa, and water in a sauce pan and let it come to a boil. Next, add milk, vanilla, and butter. Cook for 20 minutes on medium heat, stirring frequently. Serve over pancakes.
I plan on attempting to make it this weekend, but I wanted to go ahead and share it with y’all just in case you wanted to surprise your significant other with a nice treat in the morning!
