Easy Chocolate Breakfast Pancakes

Mothers Day this year is going to be great and I say that without any sarcasm at all. Dad’s all over aren’t able to buy piles of gifts, so their only option is to keep the kids busy for the day! I don’t know about you but I am pretty excited about that. But in all fairness to my husband he does help out a lot and we have a pretty good tag team set up going on.

One of the many Mothers Day traditions many of us probably have is breakfast in bed. If you aren’t a fan of the traditional bacon and egg breakfast then give your family this yummy chocolate pancake recipe.

    I love the combination of chocolate and fruit. And peach slices are such a nostalgic food for me. It reminds me of special treats that my dad used to make.
