Most of us know and love Texas pancakes (thanks to our southern friends!).But when you add nuts, more chocolate and a little caramel will do wonders!I know I like delicious turtle desserts, so eating it as a cake is a victory!I bought small chocolate chips, but you can use full-size ones if you have them.
 If at all possible, I recommend saving a slice so you can see what a few hours will do with this crazy good recipe !
