Now that Christmas is behind us, I am so excited I can finally start talking about Valentine’s Day. I have a few delicious Valentine’s Day recipes and crafts to share with you on the horizon. First up are these delicious Pink Ombre Pancakes. I love this season of love.

From the cute Valentine’s Day crafts to the fun heart-shaped food, it is just so fun to celebrate. This holiday falls right in front of my wedding anniversary so that makes it extra special for me.

I love Pink (both the color and the artist)! These pancakes with various hues of pink are the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. It’s not every day we can enjoy pink pancakes. These pancakes are topped with a chocolate heart for an extra sweet touch to this easy Valentine’s day recipe.

Oh, and one other thing. This light and fluffy pancake recipe is very easy to make, but if cooking from scratch is not your thing you can make these delicious pancakes with your favorite boxed pancake mix.

Check out this delicious recipe!

For Chocolate Topper:

How Do I Make Pink Ombre Pancakes for Valentine’s Day? 

Chocolate Heart Topper:

  1. Place a handful of candy melts in each color in each squeeze bottle. Place in microwave for 1-minute increments. After each minute is up, take the bottle out and squeeze the chocolates. Continue heating until the melts are all melted. (Decrease time if necessary to get the chocolate to desired consistency).These Pink Ombre Pancakes are the perfect homemade Valentine's Day Pancake Recipe.

  2. Place a sheet of wax paper on your table. Squeeze your chocolate to the tip of your bottle and begin making shapes or words with your chocolate. If you are making shapes or letters using a single line, go over the chocolate several times to make a sturdy shape. (Tip: create a little stick of chocolate at the bottom of your shape or words to secure your chocolate topper into your pancakes)These Pink Ombre Pancakes are the perfect homemade Valentine's Day Pancake Recipe.
