173. Make chocolate chip pancakes

Updated May 19, 2009 One of the biggest treats I can remember from my childhood is having breakfast for dinner. We’d have french toast or pancakes and eggs and bacon or sausage. The only thing I can think that would make that treat better is to add some chocolate chips.
