Delicious-Dunking

Cut prep time in half by making a few of these along with the Sunday morning pancake batch.

Ingredients

  •   
    Ziploc® brand divided rectangle container
  •   
  • 1
    cup (240 ml) prepared pancake batter
  •   
    Lollipop sticks
  •   
    Maple syrup
  •   
    Blueberries

Directions

  • 1 To make a pancake piping bag, pour pancake batter into a Ziploc® brand storage bag, press out the air and seal. Hold in a piping bag shape and cut off a small corner of the bag.
  • 2 Pipe small circles of batter onto a non-stick pan or griddle and let sit for about a minute.
  • 3 Place a lollipop stick just shy of the top of each pancake. Cook for about 3-4 minutes more, or until the edges are dry and pancake pops can be easily flipped. Cook the second side 1-2 minutes more.
  • 4 Don’t forget the most important part – the dip! Fill the larger compartment of a Ziploc® brand divided rectangle container with the pancake pops and one smaller compartment with maple syrup. Dip your pancake pop into the syrup and enjoy with a yummy blueberry snack. Enjoy!

    TIP

    A Ziploc® brand divided rectangle container keeps syrup separate so the pancake pops won’t get soggy while snacking on the go
