Hot Chocolate Pancakes

27 Mar

Hot Chocolate Pancakes Another installment of Pancake Wednesday is coming your way. For a while I have been wanting to use hot chocolate mix in my pancakes.

Hot Chocolate Pancakes It is not a new way of doing pancakes but for me it is so I thought I would try it. What is different about my pancakes is that I used Italian hot chocolate mix because that is normally the only type we keep in the house and we just absolutely love!Hot Chocolate Pancakes The hot chocolate that we have is by Cameo and it is called Ciobar Gusto Classico. Unfortunately Ciobar can be somewhat difficult to find here in the states.

Hot Chocolate Pancakes I have seen it though in specialty stores and Italian grocery stores as well. There are lots of places that sell Cameo products, such as World Market so you maybe able to find the mixture there as well. If not just substitute with your favorite hot chocolate mixture and you will be good to go! I followed my basic pancake recipe and just added a little more sugar, more milk and 2 packets of hot chocolate. I was really trying to maximize the flavor in these.

Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes

We are a little crazy with pancakes around here. I am always trying to think of ways we can jazz them up a little. With St. Patrick’s Day being this month there is a lot of green going on around the internet and the food world. I immediately knew I wanted to do something to join in. Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes

So when the kids had Friday off of school last week I decided it would be a good morning for us do to some pancakes. We definitely knew we wanted to try something new. Then the wheels started turning. My daughter and I had just been discussing last week ice cream flavors. I know her favorite is Mint Chocolate Chip.

So then the wheels started moving faster and I said what about Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes. The kids were instantly sold!

It worked out great for this morning to make them. I had all of the ingredients right in my cabinets (surprise, surprise) so I was able to pull them out and whip these up in no time at all. The kids had a great time watching as we cooked the pancakes. It was fun to see if we were really going to have a green pancake or not.

I was so happy with how these came out. They tasted great and the color was fun to look at. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to achieve the green minty pancake when I finished them up.

Hope you will find sometime to make your own Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes and add a little green into your day!
