Looking for a special breakfast idea for Valentine’s Day?
Whip up these easy and delicious chocolate pancakes for your sweetheart – you can never go wrong with chocolate, right?! These pancakes come out fluffy and perfectly sweetened as is or top them with strawberries, raspberries, bananas, chocolate syrup, hazelnut spread, powdered sugar, or whatever you desire.
(recipe from Betty Crocker)
2 cups Bisquick mix
1/4 Cup Sugar
2 Tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa
1 cup chocolate milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla
In large bowl, stir all ingredients with a wire whisk until well blended. Heat nonstick griddle to 375°F or use a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. (To test griddle, sprinkle with a few drops of water. If bubbles jump around, heat is just right). Brush with vegetable oil if necessary or spray with cooking spray before heating.
For each pancake, pour slightly less than 1/4 cupful of batter onto hot griddle. To make heart shapes, use a large metal cookie cutter. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbly on top and dry around edges. Turn; cook other side until light golden brown around edges. Makes about 16 pancakes.
In our house, pancakes are a big deal and this variation of the plain version is so yummy! Plus, you can make them ahead of time to serve at a later time. My kids and hubby loved these easy chocolate pancakes and I hope your family does too. Enjoy!
