Ingredients

Cream Cheese Topping

4
oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened
1/4
cup butter, softened
3
tablespoons milk
2
cups powdered sugar

Pancakes

2
cups Original Bisquick™ mix
1
tablespoon granulated sugar
1
tablespoon unsweetened baking cocoa
1
cup milk
1
to 1 1/2 teaspoons red paste food color*
2
eggs
Powdered sugar, if desired

  • 1 In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and 3 tablespoons milk with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually beat in 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, on low speed until topping is smooth. Cover; set aside.
  • 2 In large bowl, stir all pancake ingredients except powdered sugar with wire whisk until well blended. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat (375°F). (To test griddle, sprinkle with a few drops of water. If bubbles jump around, heat is just right.) Brush with vegetable oil if necessary or spray with cooking spray before heating.
  • 3 For each pancake, pour slightly less than 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbles form on top and edges are dry. Turn; cook other side until golden brown.
  • 4 Spoon cream cheese topping into resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut off tiny corner of bag; squeeze bag to drizzle topping over pancakes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
