Dutch Baby with a Salted Ghirardelli Chocolate Sauce

I’ve never been much of a Valentine’s Day kinda girl, but something about this breakfast makes me think that I can be easily converted: Salted dark chocolate sauce, drizzled over an easy-to-prepare dutch oven pancake.

Who can resist a holiday devoted to eating chocolate, guilt free? I don’t know which part I like better: How amazingly easy it is to throw it together (making it a great thing to hint hint at if you’re hoping for breakfast in bed) or how rich and creamy it is. Chocolate dutch baby. Minimal ingredients and easy to adapt for any dietary restrictions! Perfect for Valentine's Day #BakeWithGhirardelli #CleverGirls I originally found this dutch baby recipe at Nourishing Minimalism and my daughter and I made it together. It was so simple to assemble and the girls ate it right up. But with Valentine’s Day right around we corner we thought it needed something a little more decadent.

Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate was a nice addition because it made it sweet without being too sweet, and the touch of salt and vanilla just made it heavenly. It’s easy to melt, making the sauce a breeze to whip up. Plus the chocolate chips are super big, so when you bake those into the pancake they melt right into it.

    This looks AMAZING! I’m a huge fan of Ghirardelli, so anything made with their products is good in my book! :) And thanks for including the 9×13 pan option. I’ve only ever seen recipes that use a cast iron skillet, and since I don’t have one, I have never been able to make Dutch Babies before! Super excited to try this out. :)
