Are you thinking about Christmas morning? I know I am – which is probably pretty obvious with all the Christmas breakfast ideas I have shared with you lately. But you know – I just can’t help it.
There are so many wonderful ideas for breakfast & Christmas morning is the perfect time to enjoy them.
I came up with these Peppermint Chocolate Truffle Pancakes that are FABULOUS. Chocolate & peppermint are the perfect match – especially this time of year.
I look forward to all the peppermint flavored products all year long, so when they finally show up at Christmas time – I can’t wait to add them to as many recipes as I can. These pancakes are no exception.

My kids really loved taste testing these ahead of time. They certainly have it pretty good don’t they?!
I love how light & fluffy these are – really the perfect pancake.
The best part – you get that peppermint flavor not just in the glaze but throughout the pancake flavor with the chocolate of the pancake. Not one flavor overpowers the other – they just perfectly complement one another.
Here are some commonly asked questions
What else can I sprinkle on top in place of the peppermint chips?
Mini chocolate chips or mini marshmallows would be great. You could also add slivered almonds or crushed candy canes.
What if I can’t find this particular coffee creamer?
You can replace the creamer with milk and 1 tsp of peppermint extract. But I highly recommend tracking down this creamer as it is absolutely delicious.
