Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. I hate going out on holiday’s it seems such a rip off. Instead we like to celebrate on a different day and make the holiday special by doing something at home. This year my hubby is getting these yummy Red Velvet Pancakes. I might even make them in heart shapes. They are so light and fluffy! I really enjoyed this recipe, when I tested it I only made half of the recipe which was more than plenty making 6 large pancakes.
Red Velvet Pancakes with Chocolate Chips
(Adapted from That's So Yummy!)

In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, sour cream, food coloring and vanilla.
Add wet ingredients to dry, and mix just until combined.
Add chocolate chips and fold in batter.
