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. (Which, thinking back – are really not that expensive considering you can use them every year….)
I did have some plastic heart cookie cutters though, and I figured I could somehow MacGyver something 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!
