    2hot2handle's Note:

    We serve these pancakes for breakfast every Valentines Day - even if it falls on a school day! They are very rich, but oh so delicious. The kids look forward to them all year! The original recipe from the Penzey's Spices catalog said to cook them in heart-shaped pancake molds, but pancake molds have never worked well for me. I just use cookie cutters. The "scraps" are just as delicious as the cut-outs.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 6



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat electric griddle to 350, or use favorite pancake pan.
    2. 2
      Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Mix in the sugar.
    3. 3
      In a separate bowl, beat the egg, vanilla and milk. Pour in the melted butter.
    4. 4
      Make a well in the flour and add the milk mixture gradually to form a batter (I prefer to do this by hand, but you can also use an electric mixer). Fold in the chocolate chips.
    5. 5
      Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto the griddle or pan. Flip when they bubble and seem "set." Cut into shapes or serve as is.
    6. 6
      Dust with powdered sugar and top with whipped cream, if desired. Garnishing the plates and top of pancakes with raspberries also looks nice.

      Very easy, and very tasty. They are quite tender and a little difficult to flip. I got eight pancakes, each about 5" diameter. They are good without any toppings, but my daughter tried them with peanut butter [it's her favorite on regular pancakes] and said they were delicious.
