Heart Pancakes

Heart Pancakes: A FUN and simple Valentine's Day Breakfast Idea!
Sometimes when you are 3 years old all you want to eat is pancakes for lunch. I figured why not make the pancakes extra special and make them into hearts :)

To make these cute Valentine's Day pancakes
First mix up your pancake mix (homemade or boxed). Mix it well so there are no bumps. Then separate your batter into three (or more) bowls for your different colors. Mix in desired food coloring into your bowls and then fill your squeeze bottles. I made three different colors; pink, purple and white (no food coloring).

Draw the outline of the heart on your skillet (on low heat). Once the outline has cooked a little bit fill in the rest of the heart with your batter. When the pancake is almost fully cooked gently flip it so it can cook on the other side.

I then cut out sausages with a small heart cookie cutter I have.

Of course you could be more adventurous and add more colors, or more designs but I really liked the simplicity of just the colored heart pancake.  If you don't want to go through all the pouring of batter into squeeze bottles and drawing out the heart on the skillet you could just add some food coloring to your pancakes, make regular pancakes and then use heart shaped cookie cutters to cut them out. That is much easier and just as cute!...come to think about it.. maybe I should do that next time :)
