S'more Pancakes with Marshmallow Syrup

Who says you can't have S'mores for breakfast?  This is a perfect way to remember the good ol' campfire s'mores you made on vacation and reminisce about the perfect melty chocolate with the gooey, sugary, toasted marshmallows all between two perfectly sweet graham crackers.  And the best's what's for breakfast.  We absolutely love pancakes around our house.  I created this recipe last year, and we have been in love with them ever since.  I'm not even a huge S'more fan, but these pancakes bring out the best in the S'more.  So with much love, I give you our S'more pancakes with marshmallow syrup.

S'more Pancakes
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 cup oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
2/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Handful of mini-marshmallows

In a large bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs, flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.  In a medium sized bowl, mix together the oil, eggs and milk.  Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.  Mix just until moistened.  Add the chocolate chips and some marshmallows and gently stir in.  Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat.  Spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Pour about 1/4 cup pancake batter per pancake.  Cook pancakes over medium heat until they start to bubble on top and the other side is lightly browned.  Then flip with a spatula until the other side is browned.  Remove to a oven safe platter and cover with foil to keep them warm until ready to serve.  Makes 12 - 4 inch pancakes.  Top your pancakes with syrup and additional chocolate chips and marshmallows if desired.

Marshmallow Syrup
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup mini marshmallows

In a medium saucepan, combine butter, buttermilk, and sugar.  Bring to a boil, stirring regularly.  Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla and baking soda.  It will foam up a bit.  Immediately add the marshmallows and stir until mixed into syrup.  It's now ready to serve over your yummy S'more Pancakes.

Spider Web Pizza

It has been way too long since I last posted on my food blog.  But the fact is I have not cooked in my kitchen for like 6 weeks.  Sad, I know!  Especially since I have a cooking blog.  But honestly, the food I love has become the food I hate.  Ugh!  I haven't been cookin' because I have a bun in my personal oven and have been so sick.  So sick.  It's hard to enjoy food period.  This is my favorite time of year to make food too.  I love fall food, pumpkins, creating Halloween dinners.  Oh, I'm in mourning about my generally nausea.  But thank heavens that I make things and sometimes never post them. I actually made this last year, but never posted it.   So I am finally getting around to posting something.  Hopefully I will be able to get back into the kitchen soon.  I miss it!

This is a spider web pizza.  It is really easy and fun to make with kids.  You simply place all the toppings under the tomato sauce.  This pizza was a pepperoni pizza.  Add a cute olive spider to the top for added decoration.  My hubs hates olives so I didn't put one on, but I'm wishing I would have for the picture. 

Spider Web Pizza

Mozzarella Cheese
Pizza Sauce
Alfredo Sauce from a jar
Olives for a spider
Any other toppings

Make crust.  Place pepperoni, mozzarella, and any other toppings on top of crust.  Then put on your pizza sauce.  For the alfredo sauce, place the sauce in a ziploc bag.  Cut a small corner off the bag.  Squeeze alfredo sauce from the hole creating a spider web.  Create a spider out of olives if desired. Then cook the pizza according to the directions that go with your crust.  Enjoy!
