Candy Pancakes

  • Prep Time:5 minutes
  • Cook Time:10 minutes
  • Total Time:15 minutes
  • Servings:6 pancakes
  • Easy


  • 2 cup pancake batter
  • 2 mini Snickers bars
  • 2 mini Twix bars
  • 2 Reese's cups
  • 3 mini bags of M&Ms
  • Step 1

    For the pancakes, use your favorite from-scratch recipe or just make some from the box. Then, place skillet over medium heat, making sure to spray it with cooking spray or to put some butter in the pan. 

  • Step 2

    Chop up the Twix, Reese’s, and Snickers into smallish, bite-sized pieces. Leave the M&Ms whole. Place the candy somewhere you can easily reach from the stove.

  • Step 3

    Scoop 1/4 cup of batter onto the sprayed pan. Grab about a tablespoon of the chopped up candy and sprinkle it on the pancake. Let it cook for about a minute or so before flipping. Once you do flip it, cook for another minute, and then place it on a cooling rack.

  • Step 4

    Repeat with the rest of the pancake batter and candy until there is nothing left. Stack ’em and eat with maple syrup, caramel, hot fudge or any other sauce with even more sugar in it.
