Holiday Hot Cakes and Waffles  

As prepared by Bev Cooks

Merry Breakfast! With some simple batter, food colors and a bit of Christmas magic, you can make morning as mischievous as Santa's elves.


You guys, it's freaking December. Where did this year go? Santa's about to fall down your chimney in like 20 minutes and you better be ready. He's not kidding around.

I fully believe the best way to get prepped for this insano month is to have a metric ton of chocolate sprinkles, pearl sugar balls and various bottles of food coloring on hand. Why? We're giving our breakfast a HOLIDAY MAKEOVER with these Holiday Hot Cakes and Waffles. And I'm your host.

Pour some eggnog, get your kids involved and go jolly balls out with this. Santa recommends it. Here's how!

Grab your trusty Bisquick pancake mix, along with the decoration goods to pull this whole awesome mess together.

Bisquick to Make Holiday Pancakes

 

Mix the batter in a large bowl and, depending on how many different colors you want your cakes and waffles to be, evenly divide the batter into that many bowls.

Squirt 10 (or more!) drops of the food coloring into the batter bowls. I now like saying, "batter bowls."

Coloring Bisquick Batter with Food Coloring

After you fry up a batch of little pancakes, take a star cookie cutter and cut out little stars.

And get this, pour the green batter into a waffle iron, and guess what you get. CHRISTMAS TREES! Stop laughing.

Pancakes Stars and Waffle Christmas Trees

Look at my little red star pancakes. Guess what I sprinkled in the batter while they were frying. CRUSHED UP CANDY CANES. Oh no I didn't.

Here's a close-up of the little trees. That's vanilla frosting with chocolate sprinkles on it for the trunks. Are you dying yet?

And this is what happens when you turn your back on the platter, and the husband yoinks your food.

Holiday mornings are magical enough, but add some great breakfast eats and they're downright delish! Here are some recipes to get you going:

Holiday Hot Cakes and Waffles

Ingredients

2
cups Bisquick pancake mix
1
cup milk
2
whole eggs
10
drops red food coloring
10
drops green coloring
2
tablespoons white pearl sprinkles
1
tablespoon edible red glitter sprinkles
4
mini candy canes, crushed
2
tablespoon vanilla frosting
1
teaspoon chocolate sprinkles
1
star cookie cutter

Directions

  • 1 In a large mixing bowl, combine the Bisquick mix, milk and eggs. Whisk until combined.
  • 2 Divide the mixture evenly into 2 bowls (one bowl per color, so use more bowls if you plan to use more colors).
  • 3 Squirt the food coloring into each bowl. (Amount of food coloring can vary according to what kind you're using, so test it after each three drops or so.)
  • 4 Heat a lightly greased griddle over medium-high. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle. Sprinkle each cake with the crushed candy canes. When you see bubbles, flip the cake and finish cooking.
  • 5 Also, heat your waffle iron for the waffle trees. Pour the green batter into the waffle iron, making 4 trees at a time.
  • 6 Once all the pancakes and waffles are cooked, take the star cookie cutter and cut out some stars. Then get to decorating!
  • 7 Fill the tree holes with desired sprinkles. Using the vanilla frosting, create the tree trunks, followed by a nice sprinkling of chocolate sprinkles. Top the stars with more pearl dots.
  • 8 Stack em' up and eat!
