Peppermint extract is added to pancake batter for a minty, holiday breakfast treat that's topped with crushed peppermint candies and whipped cream. Share the love by layering the ingredients in jars for gifting.
It is important to use whole peppermint candies in the pancake mix. Crushed candy canes get gummy, stick to each other, and eventually harden into one whole chunk. Look for peppermint flavored candy that comes already in small pieces.
Keep pancakes warm in a single layer in a 200°F oven until ready to serve.
