My girls and I love to decorate gingerbread men for Christmas, and I found this recipe for gingerbread pancakes, and the lightbulb went off! I think they are so cute! This would also make a great gift in a jar if you're looking for a last minute present.
Once you ladle the batter on your griddle or pan, start decorating quickly. I used a snowflake sprinkle mix and it kept its color, unlike the white chocolate chips I tried first--they burned and made the faces look charred and scary--NOT what you want to give kids for a fun and sweet breakfast!
