Spooky Pancakes

I’ve never been a huge Halloween person. Sure, dressing up is fun and all, but to me it’s more of a stepping stone to Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Having kids, though, does make the holiday more fun. They love dressing up and trick or treating. We watch “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and this year I introduced my oldest to “Hocus Pocus”

When Halloween falls on a weekend, we also like to have a fun breakfast. That’s where these pancakes come in.

All you do is mix up your favorite pancake mix. Separate out a little bit into a small bowl (just a few tablespoons is fine) and add food coloring.
  

Using a toothpick or a skewer, dip into the colored batter and add where you want it. I just used cookie cutters for shape, but you can use pancake molds or just freehand if you want.
  

After the colored batter is in place, add the regular batter over the top in the shape you want.

  

Flip the pancake over when it’s ready.   

Remove the pancake from the mold and eat up. You’ll need as much energy as you can get to keep up with little trick or treaters!
