    Fun Mini Chip Pancakes

    Deanna Mann from Sacramento, CA

    I made these yesterday morning for my kids. They loved them! I liked the idea of mini chips and the brown sugar in the batter. I used a heart shaped cookie cutter sprayed with vegetable spray with no problems. Very good and easy to put together. Will make again!

    Heavenly Heart-Shaped Pancakes

    Denise Breslin from ALTOONA, PA

    I found myself short on chocolate chips this weekend, so I subsituted dried cranberries and was thrilled with the result. It also worked well into the valentines day theme with the red cranberries.

    Light and Fluffy Delights

    Susan Campbell from GRASS LAKE, MI

    The heart shape, or any other, is easy to do by placing some batter in a resealable bag, then snipping one corner off. First, using almost no pressre, outline the shape on the pan or griddle, then fill in the shape, using a small spoonful of batter. Continue as recipe--which is a keeper--directs, repeating until all batter is used. You can make these ahead, wrap in 1's or 2's, and freeze until needed. A few seconds in the microwave or toaster, and they taste freshly-made.

    Love Pancakes

    MICHELE Thompson from BOZEMAN, MT

    These heart-shaped yummies make for a perfect breakfast in bed to share with your mate. Especially with a dollop of whipped cream and sliced strawberries sprinkled with a little sugar. A great way to share them with your kids is to use cookie cutters of different shapes.

    Heavenly Heart Shaped Pancakes

    Marilyn Mills from SAINT MARYS, OH

    These are very good and simply to make. The chocolate chips really make these taste great and I love how big they fluffed up. Instead of heart shaped pancakes, I made flower shaped ones. Doesn't matter what shape you decide to make (or none at all), the end result will be the same -- great tasting chocolate chip pancakes!

    Perfect Vanlentines

    Joanne Thomson from West lafayette, IN

    My family loved this recipe. I found it easiest to make using a non-stick griddle. I had several heart shaped , metal cookie cutters. Since my cookie cutters were different sizes the pancakes looked really cute. I kept them warm in the oven and then made a stack for each of us with the 1 of each size. Very big hit!

    I never thought that I could make pancakes untill I got this recipe my husband always made the pancakes I tried it and it worked im so proud of my self thanks for such an easy recipe.

    A little too thick

    Paula McGuire from

    The pancakes turned out okay, but it was difficult to cook them all the way through since they were so fluffy! Next time, I'll probably cut down on the baking powder by 1/2 to 1 teaspoon, and increase the milk by about 1/2 cup.

    My boys (& husband) love chocolate chip pancakes and for a little added fun I add a few mini marshmellows. Just throw some in the pan once mix is poured and push them in a bit with a spoon.

    Great for the Grandkids

    DONALD MONTAGNE from SHERIDAN, WY

    My grandchildren came from Idaho to stay for a week. Their first morning here I made these for them. They loved them so much that out of the 6 days they were here I had to make these 4 times, once even for supper. I did however come up with another shape (teddy bear) to make it intersting for myself. Great recipe!
