Oh Yum, Yum, Yum!!! I just had a really good breakfast and it was all on-plan!!!! Now, mind you, I like sweet things. And I LOVE chocolate and marshmallow together. So that is what I had this morning and it was fantastic!!!!!!! It really hit the spot for me. I have put the recipe for these Chocolate Crepes into the Recipe section so, if you are like me and LOVE your sweets, you can try them too.
As I said in a previous post, when I was stocking up on the IP products for the next three weeks, my coach was all out of the IP Chocolate Pancake & Muffin Mix. I was devastated because I really liked those pancakes. So I bought a couple of the IP Crepe Mixes and hoped I could doctor them up to meet my need.
The first time I made the crepes I just followed the directions on the package and then spread some IP Strawberry Pudding on them. I was totally disappointed in them as they were tasteless. The strawberry pudding (as noted in the Product Rating section) had no strawberry taste that I could detect and was definitely not sweet enough. The crepes themselves were also rather bland. And, since I was using two separate IP products, I had to eat these bland things for two meals…yuck! I did follow through and ate them the next morning too but tried sprinkling some Splenda on top of them. Even THAT didn’t help. 😦
So today I thought “Hmmm, maybe if I add some cocoa powder to the pancakes they would be better.” That’s what I did (plus a few other things). They turned out great! I know they would be considered a Restricted Food since the cocoa has some carbs in it, but they are well-worth the rating.
I had bought some Walden Farms Marshmallow Dip when I was grocery shopping the other day and thought I would give it a try on these chocolate pancakes. I put just a little bit on some of them and then rolled them up. WOW, they were really good!!! So I ate some of the pancakes plain and others with a little bit of this Marshmallow Dip on them and now I am totally satisfied with what I had for breakfast. Totally. I have not been pleased with the other Walden Farms products but this Marshmallow Dip was very good (as long as I didn’t eat a lot of it). I noticed if I put too much on the pancake it would start to have that funny aftertaste the other Walden Farms products I have tried so far had. So little of it at a time was the key for me. YUM! Did I happen to mention that I LOVE chocolate and marshmallow together?!?!
