LOVE POTION #9 from Make and Takes

  • Blend together 2 cups of frozen red berries (strawberries or raspberries),
  • 2 cups of milk (less if you want it thick), and 1/4 cup of sugar.  Pour into a large glass, garnish with a few more berries on top, and add a straw with fun heart embellishment!

 

 HEART SHAPED PANCAKES

Pour ¼ cup of batter into the cookie cutter and cook until pancakes start to bubble. Remove the cookie cutter, then turn the pancake and cook until slightly golden.  For extra holiday flair, add red food coloring to the pancake batter before cooking.
