Weekdays are so busy that I always to try slow down on the weekends and spend time in the kitchen with my kids.  And it’s pretty easy to hold their attention when you tell use the words, ‘pancakes’ and ‘M&M’s’ in the same sentence.  I came up with this recipe as a play on chocolate chip pancakes because I know how much my son loves M&M’s.  Yes, they’re indulgent, but that’s what weekends are for – taking a break from the hustle bustle and enjoying a taste of the sweet life.
