Chocolate Graham Pancakes

It’s Hit or Miss Wednesday!  Last week I made this HGTV Copcat Candy Wrapper Lampshade.  This past Saturday I made Chocolate Graham Pancakes from the August 18 edition of Woman’s World magazine.  The mag was inserted in a lovely gift basket I received for my birthday.

Right smack dab in the middle of the magazine was a two page spread of S’more recipes from the S’mores Cookbook by Susan Whetzel.  And my eyes quickly settled on the Chocolate Graham Pancakes.  I immediately knew that I would be trying the pancakes for Hit or Miss Wednesday.

Chocolate Pancakes

Half of the flour is replaced by finely crushed graham cracker crumbs.  Anytime a recipe calls for finely crushing graham crackers, I skip the crushing crackers step and just buy a box of graham cracker crumbs.  It’s just easier.

Cocoa powder is another addition to the pancakes and the piece de resistance is the simple marshmallow syrup.  These pancakes could also be served as a scrumptious dessert!

I scoured the web for the recipe, but couldn’t find it, so I’m sharing it here.

These chocolate graham pancakes are so good and the marshmallow syrup is the perfect topping.


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup finely crushed graham crackers
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbs. packed brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Simple Marshmallow Syrup

  • 1-1/2 cups Marshmallow Cream
  • 1 Tbs. boiling water
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, graham cracker crumbs, cocoa, brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg. Stir in buttermilk; whisk in butter.
  3. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir until smooth. The batter will be thick.
  4. Coat griddle or skillet with cooking spray. Heat griddle to med-high. Spoon about 1/4 cup batter, 3' apart, onto hot griddle and cook until bubbles start to appear and pop - about 2 minutes.
  5. Flip and cook until edges began to look less wet and shiny.
  6. Serve hot with Simple Marshmallow Syrup.
  7. In a bowl, whisk together marshmallow cream, boiling water and vanilla until smooth. Makes about 2/3 cups.

What I did differently:  The batter was beyond thick so I added an additional 1/4 cup of buttermilk.  The syrup was also a little thick for my taste, so I added another tablespoon or two of boiling water.

Was it a hit?

My husband said it was pancake heaven!  I didn’t think I was going to like the marshmallow syrup, but I was very pleasantly surprised at how good it was.

My daughter said it tasted like dessert for breakfast and reminded her of eating cake, fall and unicorns, all rolled up in one!  She said the pancakes were the best she’s ever eaten and that the Marshmallow Cream Syrup was off the chain!

If you like pancakes, here’s my sweet potato pancakes I created after eating them at Cafe Intermezzo in midtown Atlanta.

What’re your favorite pancakes?

  1. Oh my Yum! These look perfect for breakfast or dessert. The marshmallow syrup has me very interested!

    • I was thinking that the marshmallow syrup would be way too rich and sweet, but I was pleasantly surprised. I didn’t think it tasted any sweeter than regular syrup.

  2. Oh my this sounds so good, but I’m thinking for dessert! I’m pinning!

  3. Those look really good! I’m a big fan of pancakes with strawberries and blueberries, fresh whipped cream. πŸ™‚

  4. “eating cake, fall and unicorns” is the new title of my next book.
    Those pancakes look sinful and amazing!

  5. I agree, those pancakes will make a fabulous dessert! It sounds like a big Hit! I’m not a bit pancake person but when I do, I like to have them at a small local restaurant where I think they are buttermilk pancakes but I know they just melt in your mouth!

  6. My mind was spinning as I tried to picture myself making these. I then thought, I can share this with my friend who is a remarkable cook. I would love this for a dessert as well with a strong cup of coffee.

  7. These look AH-mazing!!! This will be a fun recipe for the holidays!

  8. This would be a hit in my household! Pinning!

  9. Whoa! Those definitely look like special occasion pancakes! I love them but I can tell there is going to be a sugar coma induced after eating them. BTW…thanks for that tip about Cafe Intermezzo. I live in Atlanta (just moved here) so I’ll be sure to check them out.

    • The recipe only have 2 Tablespoons of sugar (serves 6). The syrup is not near as sugary sweet as I thought they would be. I was pleasantly surprised.

    • I love to visit midtown. And all of those great places to eat are within walking distance from my cousin’s condo on the 22nd floor. The view is awesome, too. Wish I could visit more often!

  16. Oh men, Alli! This is got to be a “sin”! LOl….Well presented and yummy!

    • It is such a sin, Zan! I’m exercising more than ever since I started blogging! I have to because I always “taste” everything I cook to make sure it’s good! πŸ™‚
