My kids can talk me into anything. You know, when breakfast for dinner ends up being a sweets, dessert menu. We start with ham and egg sandwiches and it turns into chocolate something with sugar syrup and ice cream on top!!
I did make my kids wait until after their “dinner” to eat the ice cream. This actually made me feel better about the whole thing. I should mention that my kids eat almost everything from kale to salmon to liver and onions, so a special treat every once in a while is a great thing.
Smiles, giggles and sweet treats are what life is all about! Pick a day and surprise them = ) Here is the recipe…
Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Honey Cinnamon Syrup
