Preheat an electric griddle to 350°, or use your favorite pancake pan.
Sift together the flour, COCOA POWDER, baking powder and salt into a large
bowl. Mix in the sugar. In a jug or bowl with a pour spout, beat the egg,
VANILLA EXTRACT and milk. Pour in the melted butter. Make a well in the flour
and add the milk mixture gradually to form a batter. You can do this by hand
or with an electric mixer. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour a scant 1/4 Cup
of batter into heart-shaped pancake molds and cook for 2-3 minutes per side.
You can flip the pancakes when they start to bubble and seem set. Layer on
parchment paper if you are not serving immediately. To serve, dust with
powdered sugar, whipped cream or RASPBERRY ENLIGHTENMENT.
