Ingredients:

3 1/2 C. Cracker Barrel Buttermilk Pancake Mix

2 1/2 C. Cool Water

Margarine, Butter, or Vegetable Oil for cooking pancakes

M&M’s Candies

Whipped Topping or Whipped Cream

Cracker Barrel Pure Natural Pancake Syrup

  2. Whisk together the pancake mix and water. Spoon pancake mix into hot skillet and sprinkle with M&M’s. Flip pancake to cook both sides until light, golden brown. Place pancakes on a sheet tray in a warm oven as you cook.
  3. Put whipped topping in a pastry or storage bag, with the corner cut off, and set aside a few of the black M&M’s.
  4. Add a stack of pancakes to each plate. Top with a whipped topping “ghost”, and, using the black M&M’s, make the eyes and mouth. Serve with syrup for a boo-tiful Halloween treat!
