Only 64 cans of pumpkin to go to reach 99…

Ebelskivers are traditional Danish pancakes in a distinctive shape of a ball with a texture similar to pancakes crossed with a popover. You can make your own ebelskiver base, but I happened to have Williams-Sonoma’s chocolate in my pantry.

These are great for breakfast or dessert, or a snack. I quickly made a syrup of 1/2 c leftover chocolate ganache, about 1 tbs of leftover filling, a tbs or 2 of maple syrup, a tbs of sugar and about 1/4 c of Devo Olive Oil’s Chocolate Balsamic.This is a sauce that I need to recreate.

Am I a good co-worker or what? This was the treat I brought in for my colleagues. My family has requested a peanut butter version. I’ll happily oblige over the weekend.
