Belated Valentines post

So myself and the bf don't really celebrate Valentines day, because you know.... we're too cool for all that......... yeah right! So ignoring our coolness for a moment I decided to make something cutsy out of left over pancakes. Heart shaped chestnut pancake cakes.

This is a very simple recipe that takes minutes to pull together.

You will need:

8-10 Pancakes
Chestnut spread
Orange zest
Heart shaped cookie cutter
Chocolate Sauce

 Place your first pancake on a board. Mix together the orange zest and chestnut spread. Spread a layer of chestnut spread over the pancake and then layer on another pancake and repeat until all the pancakes are stacked. Place the heart shaped cookie cutter on top and carefully, using something flat and heavy (e.g. a book), push the cookie cutter through the stack and repeat until you've cut as many hearts as you can. Drizzle with chocolate sauce and serve to your loved one = )

No-one could call me un-romantic ;)

And finally so you can see the delicious chestnut-ness

Oh the sweet zesty earthy chestnut goodness
Hope you try these and enjoy!
