Peanut Butter Butterfly Panwiches

From Mountainville, New York, 11-year-old runner-up Kelsey Fosstveit presented this fruity, peanut-buttery pancake treat. Though kids may love the fruit cereal and cherry licorice extras, grown-ups (or parents seeking less sugary options) can substitute less colorful Cheerios, corn flakes or other crunch cereal. This recipe requires some practice to create the butterfly wings from batter, but an 11-year-old child did it, so you can, too.


  • 2 cups pancake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Kiwis
  • Fruity cereal
  • 1 pull-apart cherry licorice “shoelace”


  1. In large bowl, combine pancake mix, eggs and milk. Whisk all the ingredients together.
  2. To form each wing, pour 2 tablespoons of batter onto lightly greased pan. Pour 1 tablespoon of batter below and touching the larger one. Cook the butterfly pancakes.
  3. To put together, place 2 wings on your plate to form a butterfly. Top with 2 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter, fruit, cereal and cherry licorice.
