Valentine Heart Pancakes – Using DIY Tinfoil Shapes (A Tutorial!)

I wanted to make something sweet for my family this Valentine’s Day – and I wanted that sweet thing to be chocolate chip pancakes before school.  But not just ANY chocolate chip pancakes: I wanted to make them in the shape of hearts.

Just one problem…. I don’t have any heart-shaped pancake molds or even metal cookie cutters to use.   I did have some plastic heart cookie cutters though, and I figured I could somehow MacGyver heart molds out of tin foil.   I set out to experiment and did a trial run with my all-too-willing preschooler.  Here’s how to make them!

Tutorial: Heart Pancake Molds from Tinfoil


1) Start with a plastic heart-shaped cookie cutter – even if you just have one, you can make several molds.  Do these a few days ahead, and you’ll be ready to cook up some love come Valentine’s morning!
