  • 2 cups Bisquick™ Original baking mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 10 drops red food coloring
  • 10 drops green food 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


  • 1
    In a large mixing bowl, combine the Bisquick™ mix, milk and eggs. Whisk until combined. Divide the mixture evenly into 2 bowls (one bowl per color, so use more bowls if you plan to use more colors).
  • 2
    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.)
  • 3
    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.
  • 4
    Also, heat your waffle iron for the waffle trees. Pour the green batter into the waffle iron, making 4 trees at a time.
  • 5
    Once all the pancakes and waffles are cooked, take the star cookie cutter and cut out some stars. Then get to decorating!
  • 6
    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. Stack em' up and eat!
