How to make it:

  1. Take regular pancake batter of your choice and mix it with red or pink food coloring.
  2. Put the mix into a squeeze bottle or icing squeeze bag.
  3. After placing a regular amount of batter to make a pancake, add the colored batter to the top of the uncooked pancake in the heart-filled shape.


Heart Rice Krispie Pops

For the kid in all of us, make these Valentine Rice Krispie treats with only a few simple ingredients.

What you’ll need:

  • Butter
  • Large Marshmallows
  • Rice Krispies Cereal
  • Heart shaped cookie cutter
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Lollipop sticks (Popsicle sticks will work too)

*A cheap way to get around having a heart shaped cookie cutter is to cut a heart out of paper and then use your knife to trace the heart.
