Citing Rising Cost Of Ingredients, Hershey's Raises Prices 8 Percent

You know what you deserve to do this week? Eat some freaking chocolate for breakfast. That’s what you deserve. These 11 tried, tested, and beloved recipes can make that dream a reality. Go forth, my chocolate fiend friend. Eat and be merry!

1. Raw Chocolate Hazelnut Breakfast Parfait.

I automatically love any breakfast that you can prepare the night before (because who has time to cook before work? Nobody. That’s who!), and this looks way too beautiful to turn down. I would eat the hell out of this.

2. Double Chocolate Biscotti.

Whoever decided that biscotti counts as breakfast food is one of my personal heroes. They’re cookies! They’re not even particularly healthy cookies! I’m not complaining, though.

3. Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding.

It sounds cheesy, but I really do feel so much better when I’m eating chia seeds every day. This recipe lets you get in some extra vitamins, helps you feel full and ready for your day, and has the added bonus of tasting like dessert. Hell yeah!

4. Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins.

While I probably couldn’t justify eating these every day by myself, I could totally see myself whipping up a batch and bringing them into work to share. Can you imagine how much everyone would love me that day? I might need to save this idea for after I’ve screwed something up.

5. No-Bake Energy Bites.

I’ll never forget the day that I discovered this recipe. I was digging through Pinterest (while pretending I was doing it ironically, of course) and decided to give them a shot. They taste amazing, they’re super quick, and they really do make me feel better throughout the day. Win, win, win.

6. Skinny Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Pancakes.

Thank you, recipe, for having the decency to call yourself “skinny.” You’re making me feel so much better about my life choices. These might be a bit healthier than your typical pancakes, but they’re still freaking pancakes!

7. Fudge Brownie Chocolate Protein Bars.

Throw the word “protein” into just about anything and I’m okay with pretending it’s breakfast food. That’s my only requirement. These could just be totally normal brownies and I’d still eat them at 6am if you told me they were “protein brownies.”

8. Pancake Poppers.

Can you think of anything cuter than this? Seriously, I’m asking you to try. The only thing I can come up with is the image of my cat waking me up in the morning by purring on my face. That’s it.

9. Peanut Butter Cup Overnight Oats.

Can we nominate overnight oats for president? Or at least for some kind of local office? I’d vote for them. I’d even help out on their campaign.

10. Peanut Butter Banana Quesadillas.

Yes. I am fully in favor of sweet quesadillas for breakfast. You literally do not need to try to convince me any further. I’m sold.

11. Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie Pancakes.

I’ve kind of been waiting for the right moment to share this recipe with you guys, because it’s my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE ONE OF ALL TIME. I make these every chance I get. They’re better than any cookies, they’re better than any pancakes, and they’re the biggest crowd pleaser on the planet. Invite over some friends, pour some mimosas, and go hard on these. You won’t regret it.
