How To Deseed A Pomegranate (In Pictures!)
I really, really wanted to start off with “Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters!”
But it felt a little too cheesy.
So you guys do know the movie Ghostbusters, right?
You know, the one with Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray and that famous Ghostbuster car?
Yeah, well my memories of Halloween involve that car and the Gostbusters theme song.
My grandparents live next door to the guy that owned the original Ghostbusters car. The very one that was used in the movie, the very one that Dan Aykroyd made very famous.
Every Halloween the car would come out and hit all the school parades, take a few lucky kids for a ride and then during trick or treating it would come out just once and go up and down a few of the main streets. Everybody always had their eyes and ears wide open.
You could hear the sirens a mile away and you knew it was coming. No one wanted to miss it since there was always candy flying out the widows.
It made little old Rocky River, Ohio the place to be on Halloween night.
Trust me, it was fun.
Sadly, I heard Mr. Lintz sold the car (I even found this article when I typed Bob Lintz into google to check the spelling) but I am lucky enough to have the fun memories. Since my grandparents lived right next door I got to see my fair share of the car and also take a few extra tours through it. It was just fun and ghostly. Plus, I felt pretty darn cool being a kid in such a famous car.
So every time I see ghosts, I always, always think of that car and the fun memories.
And there is my trip down memory lane for the day.
Come on, you have got admit, you are pretty jealous. No?
Well then, you should be!
And now confession time.
I have actually never seen the movie. Nope, never seen it. Just been in the car.
I should probably watch, huh? Is is good?
And now pancake time!
Took me long enough, but I promise the wait was worth it. I mean, they are literally dripping in chocolate.
They deserve all caps.
Really though, how fun are these?
Aren’t those little marshmallow ghosts so stinkin’ spooky? Ahhh, I just love them. Ok and the all the chocolate dripping off this stack of fudge brownie pancakes.
Fudge brownie. Not just brownie, fudge brownie. The combo of pumpkin and chocolate chips stirred into the batter makes these things gooey in the center and full of chocolate. Hence the “chocolate lovers” in the name.
They are a true treat and I am not really suggesting they are breakfast (although I did still include them in the breakfast category of my recipe page), because well, they are still pancakes!
Just like most pancakes they are really quick and easy to throw together and the marshmallow ghosts are just some really easy, fluffy frosting that comes together in minutes. Just be careful when plopping the little ghost on top of the ganache. They are going to want to slide a bit, so I found it was helpful to let the ganache sit a few minute before adding the ghosts. This keeps the ghosts from sliding completely off the pancakes.
But either way, they are going to come off and end up in the same place.

Ah.. Happy Friday!
I just made the pancakes this morning without the chocolate Kahlua sauce and they were AMAZING! Reduced the amount of sugar from 3 to 2 Tbls and ate the pancakes plain as is–no maple syrup or anything else on it. Totally fed my chocolate pancake craving! The addition of the pumpkin puree adds a nice moistness to these pancakes.
Love that! I am so glad this turned out so well for you!! xTieghan
I’m confused on the sauce ingredients. No butter is listed in the sauce ingredients but instructions say to melt chocolate chips and butter. Which is correct? and if I do need to melt chips with butter, how much butter.
HI! No butter is mixed with the chocolate chips. So sorry for the confusion. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much! xTieghan
I dont like pumpkin, so I’ll leave that out, but these sound like something I wanna to make in like…12 hours, lol. Brownie Breakfast!
want to*…little excited there.
I totally just got immersed in your blog. So glad I found it! So many things I want to make!
YAY!! Thank you so much!! So happy you are liking my site!! Let me know what you try!
Booooooom shakalaka! When I finally pass, I hope I fall head first into a giant stack of this gloriousness. Those little ghosts are so stinkin’ cute, but personally, I can’t get over the chocolate kahlua sauce. My gawwwwwwsh YES.
Those look amazing & I loved hearing the story. That is my all time favorite movie & as a result I can probably recite every line from every scene. 🙂 Sort of sad & pathetic but I watched it a lot at a teen.
Haha! Thanks so much, Gina!
How cool is that! You should watch the movies whilst eating Halloween sweets, it would be fun! Pancakes look amazing!! I could dig right in.
Wow – totally jealous you grew up with the Ecto-1! I had a friend with the toy version – good but not as good. We were fully channelling Ghostbusters for our last (and first shoot). It’s that time of year.
You had me at pancakes.. but these are too much! Gorgeous!
