It’s always fun to plan out a festive breakfast for the holidays and this year we made snowmen out of eggnog pancakes that’s both festive & delicious. This action plan (minus the eggnog the other 11 months out of the year) is also perfect for snow days that might have already arrived in some states; thankfully those snow days have not here quite yet, but no doubt they are on their way.
This month, adorable Meghan joined me to help make these edible snowmen to share with you for breakfast from the Price Chopper KIds Cooking Club Studio; and, a tasty treat it was. We had fun using eggnog in the batter for a little holiday flavor & then using just a few dark chocolate mini morsels to help us build a snowman on a stick. I don’t know what it is about skewing pancakes, but my youngest has decided that they are so much fun to eat that there’s no need for syrup at breakfast & I say, ‘let’s run with it….’ We found the same to be true when we skewed our Pumpkin Pancakes & put them on a stick. And, there are other times that we Iuse a combination of low fat vanilla yogurt, low fat dairy and a bit of honey as a dipping sauce instead.
Meghan also discovered that this recipe did not need any syrup and ate hers up before she left the studio. You can watch Meghan busy building her edible snowman below & grab the recipe as well. We hope your holiday planning is going well!!!
- 1 Price Chopper egg, large
- 1 cup Price Chopper all-purpose flour
- 1 cup Price Chopper eggnog, light
- 1 teaspoon Price Chopper vanilla extract
- ¾ teaspoon Price Chopper cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon Price Chopper baking powder
- 3 tablespoons Price Chopper brown sugar, light
- ½ teaspoon Price Chopper salt
- 2 tablespoons Price Chopper canola oil
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
- Mini chocolate morsels
- Long cake pop/candy sticks
- Whip the egg and brown sugar together. Add in the eggnog, oil and vanilla. Whip the ingredients together. Add in the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and nutmeg and continue to mix until the batter is smooth. Cook the pancakes over low heat on a griddle coated with non-stick cooking spray.
- This recipe makes approximately 12 three-inch pancakes.
- Let the pancakes cool slightly. Skew two pancakes to create the body & head of the pancake. Add a few morsels for buttons, eyes & a mouth. You can add a nose by using a mini piece of carrot or by using orange gel found in the baking aisle.
- No syrup is needed for this recipe & it’s a ton of fun to eat you pancakes on a stick.
- Lessons for Kids: Cooking pancakes is a great way to teach them the cooking process. Help them to take notice of the heat, to note when the pancakes are ready to flip & the importance of patience in this type of recipe.
- Pancakes Sizing: Using a medium sized spring release cooking scoop will create the perfect size pancakes for making Snowmen on a Stick.
