Christmas Buddy The Elf Pancake Breakfast

Buddy the Elf Pancakes for Breakfast

We came up with this Buddy The Elf breakfast from the Christmas movie "Elf" this morning!  My boys thought this was so funny & this is their favorite Christmas movie. I never thought we could pull off making Will Ferrell out of pancakes, but think this turned out pretty cute.

Elf Pancake Breakfast

Pancake Mix
Cocoa
1 Egg
Grapes
1 Cherry
1 Marshmallow
2 Chocolate Chips

Start out by making a large pancake with your mix in a pan over low heat. It doesn't have to look prefect and you can cut around the edges using kitchen scissors.  Take some of your pancake mix & add a little bit of cocoa to change the color. Make little circles in the pan for curly hair. A squeeze bottle works great for this. Make another small pancake to use for cutting out the nose, eyes, & eye brows. Beat 1 egg & pour it in the pan like you are making a omelette. Cut the edges & place on the top for the base of the hat. Cut green grapes in half for the top of the hat & add a cherry on top. We cut the ends off a marshmallow to make the eyes & used chocolate chips for the pupils.

Here is a close up...

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Brownies

Reindeer Brownies

My mom bought me this scone baking dish for Christmas from World Market and we decided to try it out today. We will have some kids coming over tonight for dinner and thought this would be perfect to make individual brownie slices. I am sure we will find hundreds of ways to use this dish other than making scones. I really like it & thought this might be a great idea for you to add to your Christmas list!  

These Rudolph Brownies are so easy to make & I am sure the kids are going to love these!

Rudolph Brownies

Brownie Mix (we like Pillsbury)
Edible Candy Eyes
Red M&M's 
Pretzel Twists

Make your brownies according to the package directions. Pour the mix in the dish and make sure you do not fill it to the top...about 3/4 full. Bake about 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Poke the broken pretzel twists in the top sides. You can just place the edible eyes & M&M for the nose right on top...that's it!

Christmas Angel Marshmallow Pops

Marshmallows
Coconut Marshmallows
Chocolate Cookie Icing (Betty Crocker)
Lemon Tootsie Rolls

Poke 2 white marshmallows on your sticks then top with the coconut marshmallow. Place 2 white chocolate pretzel twists on the back side using the icing. Use the icing to make the eyes & mouth. We put a lemon Tootsie Roll in the microwave for 7 seconds & shaped it into hair using our fingers. Wrap it around the top & secure with the icing.

That's it....SO easy!  

Hark! the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King!" 
Peace on earth, and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled 
Joyful, all ye nations, rise, Join the triumph of the skies; 
With th' angelic host proclaim, "Christ is born in Bethlehem." 
 Hark! the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King!"

The Grinch Easy Christmas Cookies

The Grinch Cookies

We needed to create some easy ideas to include with our Christmas trays this year for the kids & came up with these super easy Grinch Cookies!  We used key lime cookie mix from Pillsbury & decorated with premade icing, Tootsie Rolls, and sprinkles!

The Grinch Cookies

I box of Key Lime Cookie Mix (Pillsbury)
Chocolate Cookie Icing (Betty Crocker)
Lemon Tootsie Rolls
Red Sprinkles or Pearl Candies
Green Twizzler Strings

Make your cookies according to the package directions. You can also make any sugar cookie and add green food coloring as well. We used the chocolate icing to make the mouth, nose, and eye brows. We put a lemon Tootsie Roll in the microwave for 7 seconds. Pinch off 5 pieces and then split those pieces in half to make 10. Shape them into eyes using your fingers before they harden back up. Attach on for eyes using the icing. We used red Pearl candies for the pupils. Cut cut off pieces from a green Twizzler string & then cut the top into 3 pieces using kitchen scissors. Attach on the back side using the icing.

That's it...SO easy!  Here is a close up...

The Grinch Cookies

Kids love The Grinch and these would be a huge hit for Christmas class parties at school!
