Hot Chocolate Pancakes

Every year, once the weather breaks and we're all cuddling up and watching movies, there's always that craving for some cocoa. Then after a couple of cups, the allure fades and I'm left with a box of Swiss Miss sure to be rancid before next season. So a couple of years ago I started experimenting with ways to use up the cocoa in different recipes. Since my cocoa spritz cookies turned out rather successfully, I figured some hot chocolate pancakes would be just as tasty.

Eggnog Bundt Cake with an Iced Crumb Topping

I love using the Christmas season as an excuse to buy some eggnog. I love it, but it grosses the rest of my family out. Sooo, once a year I indulge. This year I bought a bottle and it sat in my fridge for weeks, no joke. I don't know what I was saving it for, but every time I went to grab it, it just didn't feel right. Then I found this piece of art and figured it was a sign!
