1. Mix together 1 cup mix and 3/4 cup of water to create the pancake mix.

2. On medium heat, pour small amounts of the mix on the pan.

3. Cook each side of the pancake for about 1 to 1.5 minutes.

4. When the pancakes are finished, put whipped cream on the bottom half of the pancake, acting as the beard of Santa.

5. Then, add a half-cut strawberry to the top of the pancake to add a hat.
