  • just writing this Valentine.

  • Me no can wait for you to get here

  • 'cause me going to eat, oh no!

  • Nom nom nommy nom.

  • - We should probably start cooking

  • before Cookie Monster eats anything else.

  • - Elmo, I think you're right.

  • And I guarantee you,

  • our red velvet pancakes are gonna taste better

  • than that card.

  • All right, you ready for our first ingredient

  • for these red velvet pancakes?

  • - Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. - Ready!

  • - Okay.

  • First ingredient is cooked beets.

  • Two of them.

  • - What, are you sure?

  • - Yeah! Beets.

  • - Wait, we making pancakes.

  • - Yes!

  • They're so sweet, they taste like candy

  • and they're gonna give an amazing color to our pancakes.

  • So I'm gonna add these into a blender

  • and then I'm gonna add a cup of non-fat milk.

  • And then we going to blend this whole thing up.

  • You ready?

  • - Ready! - Pretty color.

  • - Close your ears.

  • - Yeah.

  • - Now look at that Valentine-y color.

  • Next step is we're gonna take.

  • Look at that beautiful color of the beets

  • and the non fat milk right into a bowl.

  • A little bit of vegetable oil.

  • I've got some honey and then vanilla.

  • Two eggs and now we're going to whisk it on up.

  • Whisk it all up

  • Whisk it up, Joel

  • Whisk it on up

  • What's wrong, Cookie Monster?

  • - You okay?

  • - Me locked into whisk.

  • - Oh, should I stop?

  • - Me shouldn't have looked at whisk.

  • (Joel and Elmo laughing)

  • - [Joel] All right, Cookie.

  • You wanna do the dry ingredients with me?

  • - [Cookie Monster] Okay, me would love that.

  • - [Joel] All right.

  • First, we're gonna add some whole wheat flour

  • then some all purpose flour.

  • - [Cookie Monster] All purpose.

  • Yeah, okay.

  • - [Joel] Baking powder.

  • - [Cookie Monster] Lot of powder going in, okay.

  • - [Joel] And salt.

  • - [Cookie Monster] Salt, okay.

  • - All right, Elmo and Cookie.

  • So we've got two teams here.

  • We've got our wet team.

  • - Yeah. - Yeah.

  • - And we've got our dry team.

  • And almost always when you make treats,

  • that's the way it works

  • is you start with the wet ingredients

  • and you do the dry ingredients and then you combine them.

  • So at this point I'm gonna combine the two teams

  • to make our batter.

  • - Oh hey batter batter batter batter, swing batter!

  • With two teams we got batter batter batter

  • We playing baseball?

  • - Not that type of batter, Cookie.

  • This is a pancake batter

  • and we're gonna whisk it up until all the lumps

  • are totally gone.

  • And then we're gonna transfer it

  • into a little bottle like this so we can draw hearts.

  • So either a pan or a griddle like we have here

  • and we're just getting it on a medium, high heat.

  • And then we're gonna grab a little bit of olive oil

  • and this helps it so that the pancakes don't stick

  • to the pan.

  • Then, remember we put our batter inside.

  • - Hey batter batter batter

  • - Hey batter batter batter - Batter batter batter.

  • - I'll never say batter again.

  • I'll never say batter again.

  • So we took our pancake mixture.

  • We put it in a squeeze bottle and now watch this.

  • It's almost like you're drawing.

  • We're gonna make a heart.

  • - [Elmo] That's like your drawing.

  • - Isn't that cool?

  • And we're just gonna fill it in

  • just like you were filling it in, in a picture book.

  • I think Cookie Monster should try and make a pancake.

  • - Okay.

  • - Ready? - Yeah.

  • - Okay. Give it a shot.

  • - Elmo's gonna stand back.

  • (Cookie Monster humming)

  • - Yes. - Oh, that's great.

  • - [Joel] That's good, right?

  • - That's really good.

  • - How about one for Elmo?

  • How do you know when the pancakes are ready to flip?

  • Does anyone know?

  • - They tell you?

  • - Pancakes don't talk Cookie Monster!

  • No! - Oh.

  • - The good thing to do is to look for the bubbles

  • and if there's little bubbles on top

  • and you can even lift up the bottom.

  • You can see it starting to look.

  • So are you ready to flip?

  • - Yes. - Ready to flip!

  • - All right, here we go.

  • I'm gonna get my spatula underneath

  • and really, really really confidently,

  • which means you just know it's gonna go good,

  • you just flip it over.

  • - That was so confident.

  • - All right, so you know what I think would be so nice?

  • Is if you, Cookie Monster flipped Elmo's pancake.

  • - Oh, me would love to.

  • - [Elmo] That would be nice, thank you.

  • - Okay, do it.

  • Yeah!

  • Good job, Cookie.

  • - Nice flipping.

  • - Thank you.

  • - That is a very sweet move.

  • These look so delicious and they smell great, right?

  • - Yeah. - Yeah.

  • - Now there's so many options

  • of what you can put as toppings.

  • Elmo, what did you do?

  • - Elmo did blueberries.

  • - That looks so good.

  • I'm gonna do a little powdered sugar.

  • And what about you, Cookie Monster?

  • - Me did both.

  • - You did both?

  • Smart move.

  • - Thank you.

  • - Well, I think we should dig in.

  • What do you think?

  • - Yeah, let's do.

  • - Let's do it!
