For the Pancakes

  • 2 cups of your favorite pancake mix
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons red food coloring (paste or gel is fine)
  • 2 eggs
  • Powdered sugar, for garnish (optional)

For the Cream Cheese Drizzle

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar



For the Pancakes

  1. In large bowl, stir all pancake ingredients, except powdered sugar, with a whisk until well blended. Heat your griddle or skillet over medium-high heat (375°F). Spray with cooking spray or coat with butter.
  2. Pour approximately 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbles form on top and edges are dry. Turn, and cook other side until golden brown.

For the Cream Cheese Drizzle

  1. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and milk with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually beat in 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, on low speed until topping is smooth.
  2. Spoon cream cheese topping into a pastry bag or by using a resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut off tiny corner of bag; squeeze bag to drizzle topping over pancakes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
