There is something about the holiday season that makes you want to make everything a little extra special. You want to make that holiday feeling last the entire month of December. You want to watch every Christmas special on tv, drink hot cocoa, and check off your holiday bucket list.
“If every day could be just like Christmas…” (Did I just go a little Elvis right there!).
Even breakfast needs a holiday upgrade.
Ok, I said I wasn’t an expert! 😉
Like most Moms, I will try almost anything if it will make my kids smile. These Snowman Pancakes are so easy to make- don’t worry if you are not feeling very creative in the morning. You’re kids will love them because Mommy made them!
*Here’s a little idea I use to sneak in a little extra quality time with my kids: read over breakfast! I use the Epic! app (so I don’t have to keep a small library on the dining room table) and I just read a short book or even a chapter on my phone while they are eating. Every moment counts, right?
Now let’s get cooking.
- Prepared pancake Batter (about 2 cups)
- White chocolate disks (candy melts)
- Turkey bacon, cooked (1 slice per snowman)
- Candy Corn (1 per snowman)
- Chocolate Morsels (4 per snowman)
- Make 3 “silver dollar pancakes” (about the size of a drink coaster)
- Line up the cooked pancakes on a plate to form a snowman
- While the pancakes are still warm, add 1 white chocolate disc and push it around each pancake with a toothpick. As it melts, it will make the top of the pancake snowman white. Use as much or as little as you like. (You may want to wear an oven mitt if the pancakes are hot).
- Break (or cut) the cooked turkey bacon in half. Lay one strip between the top and second pancakes to make a scarf. Lay the second strip pointing to about 4 o’clock to make the scarf’s tail.
- Add one candy corn to the top pancake as a snowman nose
- Add 2 chocolate morsels above the candy corn nose. These should make the snowman’s eyes.
- Add 2 more chocolate morsels in a vertical line on the second pancake.
- Enjoy your snowman!
Sometimes is just the little things that can bring us so much joy. Time with family to celebrate the holidays over a fun breakfast- what more could you ask for?! Who will you be sharing this snowman pancake with?
