Valintine Day PancakesPhiladelphia, PA - Show your affection with a plate of colorful Cocoa-Kissed Red Velvet Pancakes featuring rich 100% cocoa, buttermilk, and fresh berries. Take heart-shaped cookie cutters out of hibernation for a special touch


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Baking Cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup reduced-fat buttermilk or low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon red food coloring
  • Heart-shaped pancake cutters or cookie cutters (optional)
  • Optional garnishes: butter, powdered sugar, maple syrup, and fresh berries


Combine the flour, sugar, baking cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl; stir well.

Whisk the egg, buttermilk, butter, vanilla extract, and food coloring together in a large bowl. Add to flour mixture; stir to combine. Allow mixture to sit for 5 minutes (this produces more tender pancakes).

Heat a nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Brush with a little oil or butter. Add about ¼ cup batter to the skillet. Cook for about 2 minutes or until bubbles start to form on top. Flip and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until the bottom is lightly browned. Serve immediately with butter, powdered sugar, syrup, and berries.

Cook’s Tip: If using pancake or cookie cutters, be sure to coat with a little oil so the pancakes don’t stick. Place cutters in a skillet and pour batter into cutters. Remove cutters before flipping.
