5 from 1 review


For the pancakes

  • 1 1/2 cups International Delight Dark Hot Chocolate
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup dutch-process cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the topping

  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup light cream
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows (optional)


  1. Heat a griddle over medium-low heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine dark hot chocolate, egg, and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt. Stir wet ingredients into dry until just mixed (do not overmix!).
  3. Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake into pan. Cook for 2 minutes, or until pancakes just begin to harden around edges. Flip and continue to cook for 2 minutes more.
  4. To make the fudge sauce, combine chocolate chips and cream in a small saucepan over low heat. Whisk slowly until completely combined, then pour into gravy boat or cup with spout. Pour over pancakes and top with mini marshmallows!
