Bite Size Santa Pancakes Recipe

Ingredients

favorite pancake batter or frozen mini pancakes
fresh strawberries
whipped cream in a can
candy eyes

Instructions

Prepare your favorite pancake batter according to package instructions or use your favorite frozen brand of mini pancakes.

Heat a nonstick pan to medium and use either VERY little or no oil/butter at all in the pan. (This will help the surface of the pancake look less shinny and keep the whipped cream in place)

I used a 1/3 cup muffin/ice cream scooper to try to make similarly sized and shaped pancakes.

Whether you made pancakes from batter or from frozen, be sure to allow the pancakes to fully cool on a rack before continuing. This is important because if they are hot or warm when you add the whipped cream, it run and melt down all over the rest of the face/pancake. 

While you wait for them to cool, wash, dry and slice the strawberries in half.

Once pancakes are cool, place one strawberry half towards the top of the pancake and add candy eyes just underneath. Carefully dab on a bit of whipped cream to make the fluffy white beard.

NOTE: The pancakes and strawberries could be made and prepped ahead of time, but plan to add the candy eyes and whipped cream right before serving.

    Christmas morning is our time to spend with just the five of us. I normally make something fun for the kiddos. They will absolutely adore these pancakes!

    Oh my goodness now they really are such a cute holiday idea! Forget the kids though I want them for myself!

    What a super fun (and delicious!) holiday breakfast idea. Plus, flipping smaller pancakes is way easier than dealing with the standard size.

    These are great! My son would get such a kick out of these! I jus need candy eyes, which store sells them!

    These are so adorable! I will have to add these to our Christmas morning feast!

    This looks doable to me, just making pancakes is the work and then adding the face and you have those cute little Santas to eat. I will try to make these one morning for my son and his friends.

    Those are so cute! We love to have a special Christmas breakfast every year, and I know what it’s going to be this time around!
