Chocolate Chip Pancake Ingredients
Chocolate Chips (mini chocolate chips or regular chocolate chips) (Semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
Cooking Spray or Butter
How to Make Bisquick Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Preheat the Blackstone Griddle to medium heat or 300°F on an electric Blackstone Griddle. Gather the 4 ingredients to make your chocolate chip pancakes.
In a large bowl, add the Bisquick pancake mix, milk, and eggs. Combine the wet and dry ingredients together.
Using a whisk, carefully combine the ingredients until you achieve a lump free, smooth pancake batter. You want the batter to be the right consistency which is not too runny and not too thick.
If the pancake batter is too thick, add a splash or two of milk. If the pancake batter is too runny, add a couple tablespoons of pancake mix and whisk until smooth again.
Do not over mix the pancake batter!! Don’t add the chocolate chips to the batter.
How to Cook Chocolate Chip Pancakes
Once the Blackstone Griddle is hot, spray with cooking spray or lightly butter the area that you plan to cook your chocolate chip pancakes. Do not let the butter sit too long on the hot griddle or else it will turn into brown butter or burnt butter.
For best results, use a portion scooper or the Blackstone Pancake dispenser to measure the right amount of pancake batter onto the greased flat top griddle. You want to pour the batter in the center and let the liquid form a circle pancake.
As the pancake cooks, work quickly to sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the pancake batter. With your fingertip, cover each chocolate chip with a litter bit of the batter.
Do this by dipping your fingertip in the uncooked pancake batter and then touching the top of the chocolate chip so that you cover it with some of the batter. You can push the chocolate chip down into the batter a little bit if desired.
Covering the chocolate chips with batter needs to be done very quickly before the pancake has a chance to fully cook. Bubbles form in the cakes and should start coming up threw the pancake.
Using a griddle spatula, you can now look at the bottom and see if the chocolate chip pancake has a nice golden-brown color. Carefully, flip the pancake over when it’s ready.
Your first pancakes may not turn out perfectly but with more and more practice, you will be flipping them like a pro!! Cook until it’s golden-brown on the second side.
Remove from the griddle when the inside center of the chocolate chip pancake is fully cooked. Place finished pancakes on a serving platter and keep warm until ready to serve.
Repeat this process until you have all the pancakes with chocolate chips cooked.
Chocolate Chip Pancake Tips
- If using a # 40 portion scooper you will get about 18, 3-inch pancakes. When using a # 20 portion scooper, you will get about 12, 4 to 5-inch pancakes.
- After the pancake batter has been combined in the bowl with a whisk, let the batter rest for about 5 minutes and then check for thickness. If too thick, add more milk. If the batter is too thin, add more pancake mix. Do not over beat the pancake batter.
- You can use mini chocolate chips, regular chocolate chips – semi sweet or milk chocolate, or chocolate chunks. Add as little or as much of the chocolate chips that you would like.
- Do not add the chocolate chips to the pancake batter in the bowl.
- If you have any remaining batter leftover, place in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for a day.
What kind of syrup do you put on chocolate chip pancakes?
Serve the chocolate chip pancakes hot with your favorite syrup or toppings. My favorite syrup is Mrs. Butterworth’s Lite syrup.
My kids favorite syrup is Pearl Milling Company Butter Rich syrup. Maple syrup is also a great option. I also like a thin layer of homemade strawberry jam spread onto the top as well.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes – FAQ
Do not mix the chocolate chips into the pancake mix when it is in the mixing bowl. Add the chocolate chips to the already poured pancakes on the hot griddle as the first side is cooking. Another way to prevent the chocolate chips from sinking to the bottom of the pancake is to make sure that the pancake batter is thick enough and that it is not too thin.
Do not let the chocolate chips touch the Blackstone Griddle at any time. Make sure that there is always a layer of pancake batter between the flat top griddle and the chocolate chips.
The best chocolate chips for pancakes are whichever chips are your favorite. Make sure to use a good quality chocolate chip when making chocolate chip pancakes. This is when I suggest not using store brand chips. Use Nestle Toll House or Ghirardelli for best results. There are plenty of amazing chocolate chip products in the supermarkets right now. Use whatever chips you love most for chocolate chip pancakes.
If you are looking for a fluffy pancake, make sure that you have the right pancake batter. You do not want a thin batter because once you pour it onto the hot griddle, it will pool out and not up. For fluffy pancakes you need the right thickness, however if the pancake is too thick it can cause a heavy pancake. The batter needs to be easily pourable along with the right griddle temperature.
Mixing your pancakes too much may make your cakes denser due to the gluten in them. You should just combine the pancake mix until you achieve a smooth batter. Don’t allow the pancake batter to get too thin or too thick.
