Cookies are fine and all, but this season I’ve decided to shake things up and give cookie-inspired layered pancake mixes. So fun, right? I love the thought of my friends starting off their day with an extra-special treat and these three decadent homemade pancake mixes make that so easy.
Chocolate Peppermint Cookie Pancake Jars
This is one fully loaded holiday pancake. Topped with whipped cream, chocolate syrup and crushed peppermint candies, it’s the perfect way to spread Christmas cheer—and satisfy a sweet tooth.
Quick Tip: Decorate jars with these free printable labels and a little baker’s twine.
Snowball Cookie Pancake Jars
These snowball pancakes are light, buttery and extra sweet. The chopped pecans and powdered sugar are a festive flavor combo.
Quick Tip: Pair this mix with a local artisanal maple syrup for a thoughtful hostess gift.
Oatmeal Cranberry Cookie Pancake Jars
These aren’t your typical pancake stacks; they get an extra boost of sweetness from brown sugar and have a hearty cookie-like texture. The fresh cranberries provide a fun pop of color and tartness.
Quick Tip: Swap out fresh cranberries for craisins to give this gift a longer shelf life.
