Chocolate Peppermint Pancakes

This morning I woke up craving chocolate (when do I not?) and instantly knew that breakfast would involve chocolate pancakes.


Since I already shared quite a bit of my weekend with you, this week for Marvelous in My Monday I am going to share the recipe that I came up with to satisfy my early morning need for chocolate.


The chocolate was a given, but the addition of peppermint was a last minute decision that I am very glad I made. I’m sure that I am not the only one who is diving headfirst into Christmas spirit a bit early now that Thanksgiving had passed. Regardless, these winter-esque pancakes are delicious no matter their context.
