1 - box of pancake mix
1 - marshmallow spread
1 - bottle of Nesquik or Hershey's chocolate syrup
For this recipe you will also need any ingredients needed for your pancake mix. Prepare your pancake batter according to the directions on the box. Use milk instead of water for more fluffiness. Cook pan cakes according to box directions. Let one side of the pancake cook. Drizzle chocolate syrup over the uncooked side. Flip your pancake when ready. This will cook the chocolate into the pancake. When finished cooking, remove pancake and spread marshmallow spread evenly over the chocolate side. Marshmallow side up, roll your pancake as if you were making a burrito. The marshmallow should act as the glue to keep your pancake from unrolling. If it does not stay, you can secure with a toothpick or eat as is. Enjoy this sinfully sweet dessert.
