Cooking Tools

  • Mixing bowl
  • Whisk or spoon
  • Non-stick pan or griddle
  • Spatula


  1. Mix It Up! In your mixing bowl, combine the pancake mix, milk, and eggs. Follow the instructions on the pancake mix box or your own recipe. Stir until smooth – let’s avoid lumpy snowmen!
  2. Griddle Time! Heat your pan or griddle over medium heat. Remember, safety first – make sure an adult is nearby to help with the hot stuff.
  3. Snowman Shapes: Pour the batter onto the griddle to form three circles for each snowman: one large, one medium, and one small. These will be your snowman’s body, tummy, and head.
  4. Flip ‘Em Over! When you see bubbles on the surface of your pancakes, it’s time to flip! Carefully turn them over with your spatula and cook until golden brown.
  5. Build Your Snowman: Assemble your snowman on a plate. Start with the largest pancake at the bottom, then the medium, and finally the smallest on top.
  6. Decoration Time! Use chocolate chips for eyes, a mouth, and buttons. Slice a strawberry for a hat, and a thin piece of carrot for the nose. Finally, add a whipped cream scarf to keep your snowman warm.
  7. The Final Touch: Drizzle with maple syrup or sprinkle some powdered sugar for a snowy effect.
  8. Taste Test: Gather around the table with your family and enjoy your deliciously fun snowman pancakes. Don’t forget to take pictures of your edible art before digging in!

These snowman pancakes are sure to bring smiles and holiday cheer to your family’s morning. What a tasty way to celebrate the winter season!
