Double Chocolate Pancakes (Out of Cake Mix!)

I wanted to take a different approach to the 3rd recipe in my Out of the Box series - and after pondering about it for a bit, I thought I would try coming up with a really decadent pancake.  One that is even more decadent than the typical chocolate chip pancake.

I had a milk chocolate cake mix, and decided that I wanted to use that - and then add chocolate chips to it.  I also decided to use buttermilk instead of regular milk to perfectly balance out the flavor, and contribute to the texture as well.

I tried these 2 different times, and on the second time - I had it.  The perfect double chocolate pancake.  I am so very excited to bring this recipe to ya'll.  It was so much fun creating them, and even more fun eating them!  

They are so simple to make - and requires really simple pantry ingredients.  No fancy stuff here!

Combine all the ingredients except the chocolate chips with an electric mixer. Fold in the chocolate chips.  Look at that perfect creamy batter!

Preheat a buttered griddle or pan on medium-high heat.  Place big spoonfuls of batter on the pan, and cook about 3-5 minutes on each side.

Serve with warm syrup.  Eat up!  Enjoy :)
