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.
6. To finish it off, add two mini chocolate chips for his eyes.
