No matter what your age, having a friend sleep over is a special occasion and requires a special breakfast in the morning. In my youth, pancakes made for a special weekend breakfast. Add something like chocolate chips to the mix, and we're talking a birthday morning sort of occasion. Turn those chocolate chips into chunks of Mo's Bacon Chocolate bar from Vosges Haut Chocolat, and suddenly it's Valentine's Day morn.
Making the pancakes is easy, but when to add the chocolate can be tricky. After mixing up the batter, pour it on to an electric griddle or griddle pan. When it starts to bubble, add the chocolate. When that's settled in, flip the pancakes and finish them off. The smoky, savory flavor of the bacon is light but present, intertwining with the sweetness of the chocolate, pancake and syrup you'll undoubtedly add.
