I love having lazy weekends with a big breakfast. It does not happen often around here, but I wish it did. Usually I can not justify all the calories in a big breakfast, so it is a once in awhile treat. Today though, I was up and leaving the house by 6:15. My 8 year old and I are heading up to the mountains to go skiing. The weather is supposed to be in the 30′s up there, so hopefully it will be a great day of skiing. After today, I think I will have definitely earned this stack of pancakes!
I actually made s’mores pancakes as one of my very first posts on the blog. But it was one of the few recipes that got lost when I transferred over a couple years ago. It is such a great breakfast treat, so I finally got around to re-making them. These pancakes are so easy to make, I just adapted my basic pancake recipe. Mix in a few chocolate chips, marshmallow, and graham crackers crumbs; and you have a thick and fluffy stack of pancakes that are perfect for a lazy breakfast.
The part where these pancakes go from a fun breakfast, to an over the top breakfast, is the toppings! I drizzled nutella on mine for more chocolate. Because, let’s face it, more chocolate is always good. Nutella is not required, your favorite hot fudge sauce would be perfect too. A few extra marshmallows and you are good to go! I froze the extra pancakes, so we could reheat them during the week. Great to have go to breakfasts ready for busy mornings.
