Tips for using box pancake mix to make creative breakfasts

Box pancake mix is a convenient and easy option for making delicious pancakes in just minutes. But did you know that with a little creativity, you can transform your basic pancakes into festive Christmas character breakfasts? Here are some tips to help you get started:

1. Use cookie cutters: One of the easiest ways to make fun and creative shapes out of your pancakes is by using cookie cutters. Simply pour the pancake batter into the cookie cutter placed on a hot griddle and wait for it to cook before flipping it over. You can use various Christmas themed cookie cutters such as reindeer, snowflakes, or gingerbread men to add a touch of holiday spirit to your breakfast.

2. Add food coloring: Another way to make your box pancake mix more festive is by adding food coloring to the batter. Use red and green food coloring for classic Christmas colors or experiment with different shades to create unique characters like a Grinch or Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

3. Get creative with toppings: Toppings are another great way to add personality and flavor to your box pancake mix creations. You can use fresh fruits, whipped cream, chocolate chips, sprinkles, or even savory options like bacon bits or cheese slices to decorate your pancakes into cute Santa faces or jolly snowmen.

4. Play with different shapes: Don't limit yourself to traditional round-shaped pancakes; try experimenting with different shapes like triangles, squares, or even hearts! These unconventional

Ingredients needed

Simple Pancake Box Mix

Whipped Cream


Blueberries or Chocolate Chip for eyes

Bacon for reindeer antlers

Food Coloring


Santa: Start with a perfect round face. Use the chocolate chips for eyes. Use the whipped cream to make the beard and top hat. Create the hat with sliced strawberry's and top with a whipped cream ball.

Reindeer: Shape the first round circle with ladling the nose with a smaller circle directly next to the larger ball. Create ears by shaping an egg shape with pancake mix. Use bacon for antlers. Use whipped cream for eyes. Strawberry's for red nose.

Christmas Trees; This is where cookie cutters come in, and you have to take your time. What I did was use the metal cookie cutters and a squeeze bottle full of pancake mix. Lay the cookie cutter on a heated pan and slowly squeeze in the pancake mix so that the batter does not leak under the cookie cutter. Once the batter starts to bubble then remove the cookie cutter and flip. decorate to your liking.

The possibilities are endless and you can get as creative as you like.
