Red Velvet Pancakes Forever

Valentine's Day may be over, but Red Velvet pancakes are forever. I'm not even the world's biggest red velvet fan (I know... I don't even know if I can call myself Southern after stating that. My love of all things biscuits and bacon makes up for it. promise) but these are wonderful! The cream cheese white-chocolate frosting is incredible. and indulgent. And of course, you will want to sprinkle some chocolate chips on top.

"Making Red Velvet pancakes...pretend like it's the weeeeekend..."

Mhmmm, you have to sing Jack Johnson while you are putting them together, friends!  Especially since it's Monday. (And yes, Banana Pancakes Radio is its own channel on Pandora. You're welcome)

I had the best Valentine's Day weekend. I traveled to South Carolina to hang out with my sweet cousin, Taylor, and we shopped until we dropped, got Chick-fil-a, danced to some Justin Timberlake in our jammies...and yes, there was chocolate cake involved. (And a preponderance of Dottie's Toffee. I think I ate a pound of it this weekend. I really did.)

My uncle made us a delicious Valentine's Day breakfast and the relaxing weekend was just what I needed.

And these Red Velvet pancakes are just what you are going to be needing this week:

I put this recipe together for Epting Events, and you can see it HERE as well!

Simply mix up your ingredients, pour into a skillet, heat, flip, and top with frosting and whipped cream and maybe some powdered sugar and DEFINITELY chocolate chips. Happy Monday, friends!
