Santa Pancakes

Dec 9, 2015

This yummy Santa breakfast is such a special surprise for kids to wake up to! It really couldn’t be easier to make.

I make these special Santa pancakes for my kids every year and it’s probably their favourite meal of the whole entire year.

You Will Need:

  • 1 prepared pancake
  • a bowl of fresh raspberries
  • 2 chocolate chips
  • whipped cream

Raspberries, chocolate chips, whipped cream and one pancake.


1. Place a prepared pancake towards the bottom of a plate, leaving room to make Santa’s hat.

2. Grab your bowl of fresh raspberries and arrange the raspberries in a triangle shape above the pancake for Santa’s hat. Place one raspberry in the middle of the pancake for Santa’s nose.

3. Take two chocolate chips and place them on the pancake for Santa’s eyes.

4. Finally, we’re going to pipe on Santa’s hat details and beard.

I like putting my whipped cream in a squeeze bottle with a zig-zag tip. Then I can squeeze small little dollops of whipped cream really easily and make Santa look fancy!

If you don’t have a squeeze bottle, you can just spread some whipped cream on with a frosting knife.

These Santa pancakes are a magical breakfast to serve to your little ones and they will be sure to get your kiddos in the holiday spirit.  Enjoy!
