Breakfast - S'mores Pancakes
Matt and I have been really loving to make our own breakfast on days when we both have off. It definitely makes the day start off better, and I adore making breakfast foods, so really, it is just great. (My apologies on the horribly blurry photo, I am not quite sure what occurred there!)
This past weekend, we decided to try a recipe inspired by one from a Bisquick cookbook. It is a very easy way to dress up a basic pancake mix and make it really tasty, almost a good dessert.
We were really happy to have all the fixings for these on hand: graham crackers, marshmallow fluff, and chocolate chips.
To make these, first prepare your graham crackers by crushing them into crumbs. You will probably want a good 3-4 graham crackers for this part.
Next, prepare your pancakes as directed on the box, or according to your recipe (yeah, I admit it. I like using boxed pancake mix.) Make sure you end up with an even number of pancakes in a somewhat even size, as you will be making pancake sandwiches.
Cook the pancakes on the first side, then when you see the bubbles appear, sprinkle in a tablespoon or so of graham cracker crumbs onto the pancake's wet surface, then flip to cook the other side.
Prepare all of the pancakes in this fashion, then stack on a plate for assembly.
Spread 1-2 tablespoons marshmallow fluff on a pancake, top with a tablespoon or so of chocolate chips, then top with another pancake. Repeat process until all pancakes are made into "s'mores".
