They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I can agree to that, but you know what’s more important than breakfast? Chocolate. Yea I said it! You can put chocolate on literally anything and it would taste great! Chocolate covered fruits, nuts, bacon, you name it, it’s 25% better with chocolate (getting hungry yet?)

Chocolate Chip Pancakes – With Strawberries On Top!
Ok, back to the breakfast part. So my wife Josy asked me if I could make us some Chocolate Stuffed Pancakes. Now some of you may not be familiar with the Cooking Show my wife and I do called “Bryan Cooks”. My wife is the chef in our home and as of late, she has been asking me to help around the kitchen to prepare food for us. The videos are the antics and result of my cooking.
So I thought to myself “How hard can it be?” The results? Well, you will just have to take a look at the video below to find out. Spoiler Alert: If I can do it, ANYONE can!
Thankfully, my friends at Enjoy Life Foods supplied me with some delicious chocolate to play with and bring you this recipe. And luckily for you, because Enjoy Life knows about this video, they are having a week-long bulk chocolate sale from June 5th-June 12th, 2017 so grab some yummy chocolate and give this recipe a try!
