Burger Pancakes

The best thing about pancakes is how you can turn them from simple circles to delectable Venus de Milo-esque sculptures. And, since we’re talking about sculpting, Good to Know has a recipe for sculpting everyday pancakes into yummy burgers complete with lettuce, patties, ketchup and cheese!

You’ll need:
basic pancake batter
food coloring (green, yellow and red)
desiccated coconut
icing sugar
soft double chocolate chip cookies, large
milk chocolate, melted
sesame seeds

Here’s how you make it:
1. Make a batch of pancakes using your regular recipe. Set them aside.
2. Use the food coloring to turn the desiccated coconut green. This will be the ‘lettuce’ to your burger.
3. To make the ‘ketchup’, color the icing red with the red food coloring.
4. Do the same to make the ‘mustard’ but with the yellow food coloring.
5. Assemble the burger. First, spread the melted chocolate onto the first layer of pancake. The chocolate will act like a glue that’ll hold some of the burger’s parts together.
6. Top the chocolate with 1-2 cookies.
7. Spread the ketchup and mustard icing mixes on top of the cookies.
8. Add the green desiccated coconut.
9. Spread another batch of the melted chocolate onto another pancake.
10. Use that pancake to close the burger. Flip it upside down, the side with the chocolate facing down.
11. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top, and serve.
