Snickers Pancakes

Every year for my daughter’s birthday I make her special birthday pancakes for breakfast. Over the years I’ve made Cake Batter Pancakes, Double Stuff Oreo Pancakes, and Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes. This year she requested Snickers Pancakes.

I think she got a little hooked on Snickers bars after I bought a bunch to make Snickers Caramel Apple Salad. Ordinarily I only buy them for Halloween.

As a base I started with my favorite pancake batter recipe but reduced the sugar some. I added chopped up Snickers bars to the batter.

For a sauce, I melted 3 chopped up Snickers bars with a little heavy cream. Then I mixed in some maple syrup so it would qualify as a pancake syrup and not a sauce. Β πŸ˜‰

Plus I thought it would taste more breakfasty that way.

And it was a huge hit with the birthday girl who I can’t believe is now 16. She’s almost grown but I’m hoping she’ll want birthday pancakes for many, many more years.
