Treat your Valentine (or yourself) to a truly decadent DIY brunch this weekend (or whenever) with this recipe for Hot Chocolate Pancakes from chef Nicholas Dixon of South Boston’s Lincoln Tavern. This heavenly creation is a chocolate lover’s dream (it really puts the cake in pancake) and could totally double as a dessert if that’s more your speed. Get a glass of milk or a mug of coffee to balance the sweetness, then grab your fork and dig in.


Servings: 4


For the pancakes:
  • 1 cup Stonewall Kitchen Pancake Mix
  • 1/2 cup Stonewall Kitchen Hot Chocolate & Marshmallows Mix
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks
  • 2/3 cup plus 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
For the hot fudge maple syrup:
  • 1/3 cup Stonewall Kitchen Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup


  1. Combine all dry ingredients. Add milk and egg; mix until smooth. Add melted butter; mix until smooth.
  2. Place two heaping tablespoons of the batter on a hot buttered griddle. When the edges start to bubble, flip the cake and cook for one minute.
