I mentioned on Facebook a couple of weeks ago that my daughter asked if we could try to make Santa Face pancakes. I think it was just an excuse to eat whipped cream for dinner, but I loved her excitement over all the foods we could use to create a face, so I went with it.
I made extra big pancakes (using this buttermilk pancake recipe from Cooking Light) and set out a big ol’ topping bar of sorts.
The Good (Healthy) Stuff
Clementines, Apples, Pomegranate, Granola, Bananas, Craisins, Raisins
Redi-Whip, Dark Chocolate Chips, White Chocolate Chips
The Finished Faces:
Looks just like Santa, right?
Like how she put white chocolate chips on just about every surface?
My girl ate all of her toppings and then cleaned off the rest of the Healthy Plate. She ignored the pancake, probably because she was so full of whipped cream (or whoop cream as she calls it) and chocolate chips. My boy actually ate pancake, along with his toppings. I don’t normally serve a dinner so heavy on, well, whipped cream, but sometimes you gotta embrace the moment and make a memory.
