Make Penguin Pancakes
Here's a cool way to start your day!
  • 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
Step 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.

Step 2
Create wings and belly.

Cut two wing shapes and an oval-shaped belly from the remaining pancake. Arrange on the plate, as shown.

Step 3
Add chocolate and yogurt.

Spread chocolate on the penguin's head, wings, and body. Cover the oval belly with vanilla yogurt.

Step 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.
Step 5
Add the egg.

Place the egg between the penguin's feet.
