Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Happy Valentine's Day! We're all home for snow day #2 this week, but our snowfamily from yesterday is melting fast on this sunny, 45 degree day.
Sledding this morning was done without hats and jackets, just snowpants and mittens! And all that exercise was definitely needed after this morning's special Valentine's breakfast: dark chocolate, chocolate chip pancakes. Whole wheat and dark chocolate means they're healthy, right? Next time you're looking for a special breakfast, I highly recommend trying these pancakes out. No syrup needed; they were so good.

This recipe makes a big batch of pancakes, which I love because they freeze so well. A couple of these pancakes from the freezer would make any old Monday a special day. However, if you're freezer is stocked chock-full already, the recipe can easily be halved.
