We weren’t even going to post this… It’s a silly weekend thing I did for my daughter a couple of weeks ago, but it’s a good idea and I’m sure your kids will have a lot of fun watching you make these, so we thought we would share it anyway.
I used a plastic ketchup squeeze bottle which makes shaping pancakes very easy. Just make a regular batch of pancake batter and put it in your squeeze bottle. I made ghosts and witch hats, but you can shape them into anything you can think up. The eyes and little details are made with chocolate chips.
Halloween Ghostly Pancakes
Idea from Gourmet Mom on the Go
1 batch of pancake batter ( use our recipe)
Semisweet chocolate chips
1 squeeze bottle
- Prepare pancake batter according to the recipe, fill your squeeze bottle with the batter.
- Heat your pan in medium heat and grease with butter
- Take your squeeze bottle and start “drawing” the outline of the ghost first, then fill that outline with batter
- Place two chocolate chips, pointy side down, on the pancakes for eyes and another chocolate chip for the mouth. Cook until bubbles form, flip pancake and cook for an additional 30 seconds-1 minute on the other side.
Serve with maple syrup!
