Make Penguin Pancakes

Here’s a cool way to start your day.

What You Need

  • pancakes (two large and one small)
  • melted chocolate (For a healthy option, use chocolate yogurt instead.)
  • American cheese
  • raisin or chocolate chip
  • vanilla yogurt
  • shredded coconut
  • hard-boiled egg

What You Do

  1. Arrange pancakes on plate.
    For the body, place a large pancake in the center of your plate. For the head, add the small pancake above it.
  2. Create wings and belly.
    Cut two wing shapes and an oval-shaped belly from the remaining pancake. Arrange on the plate, as shown.
  3. Add chocolate and yogurt.
    Spread chocolate on the penguin’s head, wings, and body. Cover the oval belly with vanilla yogurt.
  4. Add the bill, feet, and eye.
    Cut a triangle bill and two feet from the cheese. Place the shapes on the penguin, as shown. “Glue” a raisin or chocolate chip eye on the penguin’s head with vanilla yogurt. Sprinkle coconut “snow” on the plate.
  5. Add the egg.
    Place the egg between the penguin’s feet.
