Green Velvet Lucky Charms Pancakes

06.-61
Well, let me tell you! It has been a whirlwind of a month. I really don’t know where it went. Having to move cross-country has been exhausting and exciting. I seriously cannot believe it is already March. It feels like it was January yesterday.
Anyway. I am really excited about this post! Your mouth may have dropped open when you saw pictures. I know, it is not typical breakfast fare. Nonetheless, it is really good. It is also really sweet! It would actually make a great midnight dessert, or treat for the kids. Now I warned you, this is sweet. Unless you want your children to be bouncing off the walls at 9 pm, I would not serve this to them past noon.
So, the pancakes are light and fluffy. they get their fluffiness from the combination of milk and vinegar. This is essentially making buttermilk. Of course, they are also dyed green for St. Patrick’s Day. You can choose to skip that if you prefer. I separated the marshmallows from the rest of the Lucky Charms cereal and mixed some into the batter. An icing glaze is the perfect compliment to these pancakes and really puts in dessert territory. You can top that with some sprinkles and additional marshmallows if desired. That about does it. They are really easy to whip up, and will definitely make a great conversation piece!
Recipe:


   Gather all of the marshmallows from the cereal, and set aside.
Stir the milk and vinegar together. Let this mixture rest for 5 minutes to thicken.
 In a medium sized bowl, stir the flour, sugar, baking powder,
baking soda and salt together.
Whisk the eggs, buttermilk and (cooled) melted butter in a separate large bowl.
Gradually add the flour mixture and blend until all lumps are gone.
Add green food coloring if desired.Preheat griddle to 350
degrees, and grease it with a little melted butter.
Stir in Marshmallows and let batter rest for a couple minutes.
Pour 1/4 cup batter circles onto the griddle, and cook until surface bubbles begin to pop.
Flip and cook on the other side until done.
For vanilla glaze: mix powdered sugar, butter, and vanilla and milk until a glaze forms. Stir in sprinkles.
Mix marshmallows into glaze.
 Drizzle glaze over pancakes.
Top with additional marshmallows and serve.
