Chocolate Pancakes with Chocolate Ganache

If you love all things chocolate then you’ve got to try this.

Some would look at this and instantly declare dessert.

I myself am a dessert first, dinner later kind of gal and love eating dessert type items for breakfast which is why this recipe really jumped out at me.

Seriously, WHO I ask, WHO would turn down chocolate pancakes with a chocolate ganache, strawberries and bacon for breakfast?  NO ONE.

Ok, my husband would. He isn’t much of a dessert person.  BUT seriously, DELICIOUS. 

This is the type of breakfast you make your mom for Mother’s Day.  Or your kids for their birthday breakfast. Or, for your spouse after an argument. 

This is the epitome of a weekend at home, let’s do anything we want kind of breakfast, or dessert, or dinner.  Really – why limit ourselves?

The chocolate pancakes are mild in flavor but fluffy and delicious.  The chocolate ganache is a well used recipe I’ve been making for years; and the bacon dipped in chocolate ganache is BEYOND amazing. 

Put them all together and you really have the best, most amazing breakfast EVER!
