Pumpkin Pancakes with Chocolate Spiderwebs

Pumpkin Pancakes with Chocolate Spiderwebs recipeHalloween is right around the corner. Less than a week away in fact. I have yet to get my act together and make my kids costumes. Or even come up with any costume ideas. Or buy any candy. Or buy pumpkins. So basically, I have not acknowledged that Halloween is in like 4 days.

But I have served my family pumpkin pancakes, so I have that going for me. These easy pancakes are a fun way to start the day. These are fast enough to whip on a weekday morning. I took some help and used Bisquick instead of my usual pancake recipe and doctored it a little to make it pumpkin-y and a little bit spicy. I drew some spiders and spiderwebs with chocolate frosting and the kids thought that I was the most amazing mom ever. That feeling only lasted a few minutes when they discovered that I am still costume-less.

      that makes me feel better! I have to say though, Halloween is not my holiday at all. I consider myself to be a creative person, but nothing comes to me for Halloween. At all.
