I was so excited planning this surprise breakfast in my mind. In one trip to the grocery store, I had everything I needed. Before I went to bed that night, the table was set, the fruit was washed and cut, the straws were trimmed in size, and the pillow floor cushions and napkins were trimmed with green ribbon.
Stir a rainbow of food coloring into each bowl. Make sure to add enough food coloring to get nice bright colors. If the red looks pink, the pancakes will be pink. If the batter is pale green, the pancakes will be pale green.
Next, heat a skillet or griddle to med-high. Using a full tablespoon of batter, dollop the batter (as close to a full round circle as you can get) on the griddle.
St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays that can easily pass by pinning a little green to your shirt and calling it a day. Why not create something a little more magical this St. Patrick’s Day? I can vouch that the giggles, smiles and chatter were well worth the extra effort. You can find other parties and special projects on my website Worth Pinning and on Facebook.

Ive tried food coloring in pancakes before but they tasted awful. What type did you use?
Carrie - Worth Pinning says
Lindsey- try liquid food coloring. I don’t notice a difference in flavor when adding the food coloring. You could also add a little vanilla extract or almond extract to the pancake batter.
What a fun way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your kids! The gold coin chocolates bring back good memories. Thank you for a wonderful post…Ann
