Gooey Marshmallow Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Just got done watching the long awaited Top Chef finale and they definitely picked the right person. Since I already ruined it for someone, I deleted my commentary about the winner. It was a great show though!

Now for some pancakes. The kids go nuts for these pancakes, so since many of our Dad’s are still big kids themselves, I thought I’d share these tempting pancakes before Father’s Day. The marshmallows are fabulous as they melt into the pancakes with the chocolate chips. These are certainly not your everyday type of pancakes, they are a real “treat” and should only be served on “special occasions!” Just a slight sugar HIGH!

Hope everyone enjoys this weekend with all of the Father’s in their lives! I’ll be back soon with a killer recipe using some of the leftovers from my Father’s Day Dinner!

Here’s a more realistic shot, the marshmallows and chocolate chips are certainly optional on top, they just seem to make my pictures more fun!

    I whipped these up for breakfast this morning, after spotting the photo on foodgawker. Wow, absolutely scrummy, but definitely a ‘sometimes food’. I served them with a small scoop of ice-cream because us Aussies aren’t really accustomed to proper maple syrup and the fake stuff we’re used to is really just flavoured sugar. Far too sweet for these lovely pancakes.

    Talk about a sugar high! I can’t imagine anything that looks better. Your kids probably think you’re the most amazing mom ever!

    I was worried about spoiling Top Chef for someone, especially if someone had a feed … but what can ya do. Some things you have to watch real time. And I thought the best person won! 🙂

    The pancakes look yummy!

  4. Patsyk

    My boys would be all over those pancakes before they were on the table! So delicious!

    I agree, the right person won… and I still haven’t watched it! I had to find out because I couldn’t bear it if a certain someone else had won instead.

  5. Jennifer

    What a great treat! We made these this morning for Father’s Day (we have to celebrate a day early) and the pancakes were a HUGE hit! Everyone gobbled them down and felt very full afterwards. We look forward to enjoying more of your creations. Happy cooking!

  6. Lore

    I think it’s hard to stay away from these pancakes once you make them the first time. Yummy!

  7. Clumbsy Cookie

    It’s like S’mores pancakes, isn’t it? Your house must smell allways so good with the yummy treats you do!

    The picture are so fun! I love them.
    The pancakes sound good. I was thinking pancakes sounded good. Or fried chicken. Chicken and pancakes? Hmmm.

    I am so happy with who won, Top Chef. I was getting nervous when (?) did so well, with her dessert and coconut soup.

  9. Steph

    Wow Jenny! Your kids are so lucky to have you as their Mom! My daughter would be requesting these every single day if I made them! Delicious!

  10. Christy and Pete

    Yikes! I can’t resist your recipes. I am trying to lose my baby weight as I have a 3 month old. We check your blog in the morning to see what is new! I love your recipes! I have tried about 5 of them and they have all turned out extrememly well and they have been really simple to make.
    Well, this morning I see these delicious pancakes and KNOW THAT I MUST TRY THEM! They sound delicious! They may not help the baby weight disappear, but will put a smile on this sleep deprived Mom! Many thanks for your blog!

    Seriously, you have to stop. Your peanut butter-reeses-mallow-banana sandwich has become my new favorite thing. I can’t take much more!

    Hi Lori,
    I think that’s why I stayed up so late to watch the finale, because I knew I’d read it somewhere today! You’ll still have to watch the highlights. We don’t make pancakes all that often around here. It seems like I make them only for special occasions! Have a great weekened!

    Hi Chocolate Chipped,
    Thanks for visiting my blog, I love seeing what’s cooking in your kitchen, it all looks incredible!

  13. Chocolate Chipped

    Yummmm! That breakfast looks amazing, and yes I think it could definitely qualify as a scrumptious dessert too!

  14. RecipeGirl

    That’s ok… someone else’s blog ruined the finale for me. I guess that’s what I get for tivoing it to watch later!!

    If my son sees this post, he’s going to wish for you to be his mommy! What a decadent breakfast treat 🙂
