Sometimes there’s nothing better than chocolate for breakfast. Sweets for the sweet, and all that.
But sometimes, on special occasions (or just because, if you’re that awesome) there’s nothing better than chocolate pancakes for breakfast. Topped with sweet maple syrup. Sprinkled with mini chocolate chips. In the shape of hearts.
Oh yeah, life is sweet!
