What you need:
- Pancake mix

- Green food coloring
- Plastic squeeze bottles
- Make pancake mix according to directions on package. Prepare batter using directions for 2 cups pancake mix. Divide batter into containers. For reindeer, mix 1/2 cup batter and 5 drops red food coloring. For green batter, use ½ cup mix and 4 drops green food coloring. Leave remaining batter as is.
- Pour each color batter into a squeeze bottle. Heat griddle to medium heat. For reindeer, make a dot for eye then add plain batter on top of eye to form a 2 inch circle. Add a red nose and a red collar. To form antlers, make a thin line touching head and then make a small branch coming from first part of antler. Antlers will spread, so only make a fairly thin antler.
