Kids and adults of all ages will love choosing their toppings and creating their perfect snowman for a delicious meal on snowy mornings. In fact, this build-your-own edible snowman breakfast is so fun it just might become a wintertime tradition for your family.
Start by making the pancake batter. I did the actual scooping and measuring, and let my son do all the dumping and mixing.
Once your batter is ready, you need to make 2 different-sized pancakes for each snowman. I used a full 1/4-cup measuring cup for the bigger pancake and then filled it only halfway for the smaller one.
Once your pancakes are all cooked (this recipe made me 12 in each size), it's time to set out your toppings. You can use dried fruit, fresh fruit, frozen fruit, chocolate chips, cream cheese, powdered sugar, bacon, pretzel sticks or any other fun things you might have in your pantry.
The easiest way to make your pancakes white is with powdered sugar through a sifter. The powdered sugar does absorb after a few minutes, so you'll want to wait until right before decorating and eating time to use it.
Now comes the really fun part — decorating the snowmen!
We are big fruit eaters in this house, so my husband went with blueberries and dried cranberries for the eyes, smile and buttons. We all used a little triangle of apple for the snowman noses.
To make a snowman scarf, tear a piece of bacon to about the width of your small pancake, and lay it between the 2 pancakes.
Tear another piece of bacon slightly longer, and tuck it under 1 end of the first piece.
Skinny pieces of bacon or pretzel sticks work really well for arms.
You can even use bacon to make your snowman a hat. This pancake snowman is spread with cream cheese to make him white.
We've decided that this was so much fun, it's going to be a holiday brunch tradition from now on.
These snowman pancakes are so cute your kids will be begging to make their own breakfast. Feel free to incorporate any other topping ingredients you'd like.
