German Chocolate Pancakes

I am in a chocolate mood.  I want rich chocolate, but it’s breakfast time; it would be wrong to have chocolate.  Not if you make a breakfast food.  How about a chocolate pancake,  but let’s add the stuff of German chocolate cake: pecans, coconut, caramel.   A side of bacon or sausage  and you’ve got yourself a winning breakfast or brunch dish.  I hope you like it.
