These are a family favorite since 1994.
|1 1/2 cups||All-purpose Flour||Substitute cake/break flour for more cake-like texture|
|1 teaspoon||Baking Soda|
|1/4 cup||Sugar||Substitute honey for a sweeter pancake, or maple syrup for fall flavor.|
|1/4 cup||Cocoa||Substitute baking chocolate with butter to have lighter pancake|
|1 cup||Milk||Substitute skim milk or soy milk may require adjustment of liquid/flour ration for proper mixture flow on griddle|
|1/4 cup||Butter||Substitute with margarine or vegetable oil will result in a smoother-texture pancake. Add vanilla for added flavor|
|1/2 cup||Milk Chocolate Morsels|
Fall mix with Dark-Chocolate and Butterscotch chips, for Christmas, use Christmas chips or M&M’s
Shift together the first five ingredients in a large bowl. Combine eggs and milk; add to flour mixture, sitting just until dry ingredients are moistened. Add melted butter and chocolate morsels, stirring just until combined.
For each pancake, pour about 2 tablespoons batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle. Turn pancakes when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Yields: 18 (4-inc h) pancakes.

The above instructions are as written in the source book. The personal substitutions are in the right-hand column.
I use a cast-iron griddle on a gas range. I set the temperature so the pancakes cook enough in three minutes per side.
I use either the 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup to dispense the batter onto the griddle.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
This is from an episode, Three Chips for Sister Marsha | Good Eats | Food Network.
For Christmas I would substitute either Christmas Chips or M&M’s in the recipes.
For beer this year, I am trying the Old Fezziwig clone. I added extra Ginger and gave it a little-more kick. Over time the ginger will mellow, so after Christmas it should be a nice Winter beer.
