Add 1/2 to 1 inch of hot water in the bottom of a medium saucepan. Place a glass bowl over top, ensuring that the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the water.
Add the chocolate, heavy cream & corn syrup to the bowl.
Melt over low heat, while occasionally stirring. Once chocolate is melted, remove from the heat and whisk until smooth.
Preheat a griddle or large frying pan to medium heat.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
In a separate bowl or liquid measuring cup whisk together the buttermilk, sugar, egg and vegetable oil.
Gently fold the wet ingredients into the flour mixture. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
Lightly grease the frying pan or griddle.
Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle/frying pan per pancake. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until you see a few little air bubbles forming. Flip and cook on the other side for 1-2 minutes.
*For extra thick pancakes, add 1 extra tablespoon of flour.
