Ghostly Pancakes

Your little ghouls will scream with delight when they see this spooky and fun breakfast! You could also use them for a Letter "G" snack!The best part? You probably already have all the ingredients in your pantry right now! They're a snap to make and they'll vanish before you can say, "Boo!"Ghostly Pancakes
Ingredients:
Your favorite pancake batter (or simple recipe below)
Chocolate Chips


Directions:
Spread pancake batter in blobs on griddle heated on medium-high heat. Don't worry too much about the shapes, just make sure they aren't circles.
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.
Remove from pan and serve!

Notes: MothertoMany had a great idea! She said, "A healthier version would be to use some "boo"berries for the mouth and eyes instead of chocolate chips, or raisins, or even craisins." Happy Ghosting!

I, too, love the "booberry" idea!
Here is a yummy tip/alternative to using sugar! Try using vanilla and cinnamon! Oh my stars!!! Of course, I'm a quickie kinda pancake mom and use Bisquick...but I had vanilla and cinnamon to taste and it is soooo yummy! Especially with "booberries"!!!

I think I will treat my kiddo to some scary pancakes! Thanks for the tips!

We had ghost pancakes this morning, but apparently only using 3 choc. chips on the face wasn't enough for G.
