Chocolate Pudding Pancakes: Bill Cosby Would Be Proud

Had the flu. Flu--> bronchitis. Here's hoping bronchitis doesn't --> pneumonia.

I hadn't eaten since Thursday and last night, I was STARVING. The fever was finally low enough for me to handle ordering food. Yeah..this was actually a problem until last night. I had some thai food.

This morning, I woke up even hungrier. I didn't want to order food again. I looked in my pantry and stared at the empty shelf space (being sick for almost a month lends itself to being unable to shop for groceries). But I found pancake mix. Considering that I usually make most things from scratch, I decided to take out the lonely package previously destined to sit for eternity.

But I can't *just* make plain pancakes. That's not how I roll.

But I was out of the usual items. No fresh fruit. No chocolate or peanut butter or coconut or nuts. Hmm.

I found two boxes of instant chocolate pudding. I'm not a pudding fan. It was left over from when an ex of mine wasn't feeling well.

Well...here goes nuffin.

Turned out AWESOME.




Eating them as I typed this. BE JEALOUS.

I would actually make these again, ON PURPOSE, even if there were other ingredients available.

UPDATE: Darn. Could only eat about four bites. Darn you, appetite-suppressing illness!
