PANCAKES WITH CHOCOLATE SYRUP



We love our Sunday brunches. At the brunch table my husband and I wrap up the past week,  solve the world's problems, make plans to remodel our house for the umpteenth time, discuss who should clean the dishes afterwords or quitely watch the squirrels dig holes on our lawn to  collect their  treasures they buried in our back yard past summer.  So as you see, Sunday brunches are very special to us.  Just as our conversations I try to make different things each time. This Sunday I made a simple chocolate syrup with prunes (!) in it. Why prunes? a) they are healthy, b)  my husband likes them and c) they taste divine in chocolate.  Try it you'll like it. I'm not going to write the recipe for the pancake because everybody has their own favorite. I made my pancakes plain and a little plump so that the delicious chocolate syrup will go into every little crevice of the pancake.

1/2 Cup whole milk;
1/2 Cup light cream or half and half
1/2 Cup of cocoa powder
1/4 Cup milk chocolate morsels
1/2 Cup sugar
1 Tbsp of butter
10-12 pitted prunes finely chopped
1/4 Cup white wine (optional)

Melt butter in a medium sauce pan and add milk, half and half  and sugar. Stir until sugar dissolves.  Add, prunes, cocoa powder and chocolate.  Keep stirring until chocolate and prunes dissolve.  At this point I add white wine.  Once syrup starts bubbling it is ready to pour onto the pancakes. Delicious.
