To make the pancakes:
Use your favorite pancake mix. Add 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips for every 2 1/2 cups of pancake mix. Mix the pancake batter according to instructions and add the chips.
Maple syrup goes well with these pancakes. For a special treat, try cherry syrup or red raspberry syrup. For decadent chocolate pancakes, spread your pancakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Butter.

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cocoa
Beat the butter and cream cheese together with an electric mixer. Add the other ingredients. Beat until light and fluffy.
