Snickers Pancakes

Snickers Pancakes have chopped candy bars in the batter and a decadent Snickers syrup. This is a pancake breakfast you won’t soon forget.

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.


Snickers Pancakes Recipe

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.  😉

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.

How To Make:

  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Whisk together the wet ingredients in a second bowl.
  3. Mix. Add the two together, stirring just enough to combine.
  4. Add in the chopped snickers bars.
  5. Cook the pancakes on a griddle or in a nonstick skillet.
  6. Make the syrup.

      Sorry! I meant to put the size in ounces of the bars but forgot. I used the regular-sized ones. I think they are around 2 ounces each.
