Hot Cocoa Pancakes are the ULTIMATE treat for chocolate lovers!

Sometimes in life we need to take a step back to enjoy the little things. I’ve partnered with HERSHEY’S SIMPLY 5 Syrup, this is a tasty twist on the HERSHEY’S classic, now made with five simple ingredients!

These Hot Cocoa Pancakes might be one of the most decadent and delicious breakfasts you will ever taste! A simple pancake batter is made even better with packets of hot cocoa mix and the special topping makes everything super memorable! Layer on the HERSHEY’S SIMPLY 5 Syrup and mini marshmallows. A breakfast or brunch built for chocolate lovers!

So why are we super excited about this HERSHEY’S SIMPLY 5 Syrup? For so many reasons! It has brilliant flavor but has no high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors and flavors. It’s made from non-GMO ingredients. That makes me feel a whole lot better when serving it to my family and friends. You can bet we will be using this all summer long on ice cream sundaes and of course….pancakes!

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, making time for traditions can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Some of the best moments are the simplest ones. Raise your hand if HERSHEY’S classic was a big part of your childhood? It sure was a memorable part of mine. Now I can feel even better about enjoying it!

Just a squeeze of HERSHEY’S SIMPLY 5 Syrup, brings back cherished childhood memories and makes a glass of milk or bowl of ice cream feel extra special. It’s an easy way to share a sweet and simple moment with your own family.  HERSHEY’S SIMPLY 5 Syrup is available in 21.8oz bottles at mass and grocery retailers and 48oz bottles at Costco starting this spring, look for it next time you go food shopping! Have it at the ready for Memorial day and all kinds of summer celebrations!
