Carisa from Messes to Memories is back today and sharing really cute and simple Christmas breakfast ideas! I’m excited to try these pancakes with Max on Chrsitmas morning.
Carisa here from Messes to Memories to share a fun little Christmas activity that you can do with your family! As a part of our advent this year, we decided to do a special Christmas Pancake breakfast. Our breakfast included some of our most favorite things. Pancakes, fruit, bacon and peanut butter!
I’m sure you’ve seen some amazing pancake art floating around. Let me just tell you that it is a whole lot harder than it looks! Ha ha! My first couple of attempts turned out to be giant blobs instead of Christmas trees and reindeer. Thankfully my husband took over the pancake making and I decided to help the kids make some pretty pancake food art!
Lanae requested the Christmas tree and she decorated it all by herself! I love how independent she is becoming. She was so excited about it her Christmas tree pancake art, just look at that face!
It was so fun to help Owen. He was excited to give Rudolph a strawberry nose and banana eyes, and it turned out adorable.
Here’s what you need for a Christmas pancakes
1. Pancake batter
Any pancake batter will work. Simply, fill an empty chocolate syrup container with pancake to easily dispense the batter in the shape of your choice.
- peanut butter
- whipping cream
- chocolate chips
Santa is my favorite because wait for it- it is the easiest! You can make a round pancake and add whip cream for his beard and rim of his hat. Two pieces of mandarin oranges and a raspberry for the month. It’s also fair to note that the peanut butter is totally optional.
This was such a fun Christmas activity. I think I’ll be working on my pancake art skills so that I can make some amazing art next year!
