Chocolate Peanut Butter Pancakes

Yeah, I'm behind on...everything.  I know.  I haven't been cooking much interesting lately and I have about 5 million half-finished craft projects laying all over the house that I see to have just plain run out of steam on.  I haven't wanted to do much of anything lately other than watch Netflix, play WoW, and ignore the ever-mounting pile of things needing to be done.  I'm sure that, as usual, I'm getting more accomplished than I'm giving myself credit for, but thus is life.

First off, make pancakes.  I just used a simple box mix because I haven't made pancakes from complete scratch yet.

This is what made things special.  I bought these once on a whim and we haven't looked back since.  They are a bit on the pricey side, but they are super sweet and last forever and ever, so they are worth it.

I made the pancakes, then started layering them with a bit of these spreads, alternating between the white chocolate peanut butter and the dark chocolate.

 I sprinkled them with a few white chocolate chips for prettiness...

They were very sweet and needed zero syrup...I recommend juice, though, since without syrup they are a bit dry.  I may experiment in cooking down one of the flavors into a thinner sauce to go over the pancakes.  Not an unsuccessful experiment, at any rate, and I'm not usually a fan of sweet things for breakfast, but when you have a craving, you have a craving!  :)




  1. O___o omg I want!! If you want to make pancakes from scratch, here is Alton Brown's recipe http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/instant-pancake-mix-recipe/index.html I always keep it on hand and it makes really good pancakes!

    1. Thanks for the recipe, I bookmarked it! I, sadly, only learned to make pancakes about a year or so ago, so I'm still working with mix right now!
