Festive Breakfast Treats

 Since we have been home for so long, I've been getting creative with festive breakfast ideas. I made these snowman treats for my nieces when they were in town for Thanksgiving and they LOVED them. They are both super easy to make and only include a few ingredients. The Santa pancake was a little trickier, but so healthy and delicious. I'm sure kids would LOVE it on Christmas morning (my husband also loved it).

Santa Pancake


Pancakes (homemade, pancake mix, or even frozen pancakes could be used)




For one Santa pancake you need about 4-6 strawberries (washed, dried, and cut), 2 blueberries (washed and dried), and 1 large banana (cut). You could also use chocolate chips for the eyes if you want or whipped cream instead of banana!

Snowmen Donuts


Mini powdered donuts

Mini chocolate chips

Candy corn

Cut the white tip off the candy corn and place inside the donut hole for the carrot nose (the yellow shouldn't be showing - all you should see is the orange). Place mini chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth.

Snowmen Cinnamon Rolls


1 package of cinnamon rolls and frosting (or you could make homemade)

Chocolate chips

Mini chocolate chips

Orange tic tacs

Small stick pretzels

Place one cinnamon roll on the pan. Unravel the next one a little and cut off a small piece to make the head a little smaller than the body (you can put the extra pieces together to make another cinnamon roll at the end). Press the ends of the two rolls together on the pan. Repeat for the rest of the cinnamon rolls. Bake as directed. Let cool a little and then frost and add chocolate chips for the buttons and mini chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth. Add a tic tac for the carrot nose. Last, add two pretzel rods for the arms.

Mini Donuts with Chocolate Glaze

Last, but not least these adorable mini donuts. I used this donut maker and found a very similar one here. This is the donut recipe I used:

1/2 cup sugar
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. baking powder
2 cups flour

This is the chocolate glaze recipe I used:

1/2 chocolate (can use melting chocolate or chocolate chips - I used Ghirardelli dark chocolate)
2 tbsp. butter
2 tsp. water
2 tsp. light corn syrup (optional but gives them a beautiful shine) 

Melt on 50% power in microwave stirring every 20-30 seconds until melted. Dip one side of the donuts in the glaze. I use a fork to dip it more easily then put sprinkles on. You can sprinkle them on or dip them in if you want them to completely covered like mine. Here are the festive sprinkles I used.

Happy holiday baking!
