Chocolate Swirl Pancakes w/Chocolate Syrup

Even though I’m getting married in about six months and should probably reevaluate my diet, I decided that today was not the day to do that. Thus, I had Chocolate Swirl Pancakes for lunch. Cuz I do what I want!

Also, they were delicious and pretty. I used this tried and true pancake recipe (just modified it for the yield), and they turned out super well.
