These Chocolate Pancakes a la Mode are the perfect quick and easy way to make a dessert that everyone will love!
So last year I shared my dad’s famous 3 ingredient pancakes with you, which ended up being one of my Top 10 posts of 2015.
Well, I was talking with my dad on the phone the other day and we started talking about pancakes.
In his original recipe it calls for milk, flour and eggs.
A lightbulb went off and we thought… what if we used CHOCOLATE MILK!?!
I know, these are epic conversations we’re having… 😉
I knew it was going to be amazing, but to make them even more chocolatey, I added a little bit of cocoa powder and a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips.
Because chocolate chips just take things to the next level, am I right?!
So here’s what is so appealing about these chocolate pancakes.
They’re mixed up with just one bowl in about 15 seconds. THEN, you heat up a griddle and it literally takes less than 30 seconds to cook on each side.
So basically your late night chocolate cravings are less than a minute away.
But what you MUST do is top them with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle some chocolate syrup over the top. The warm pancakes melt the ice cream and it’s just so heavenly.
Keep in mind these aren’t your typical pancakes. These are my dad’s famous pancakes. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the original recipe if you haven’t already.
I can’t tell you how many times we’ve made these in the past month (too many for me to say without being slightly embarrassed).
You’re going to love this quick dessert!
