Pancake Mix:
Mix pancake mix, cocoa powder and granulated sugar in large bowl until well blended. Stir in buttermilk, egg, vanilla and food color just until blended. Heat your pan, coat with butter and add 1/4 cup of your mixture. (Note: cooking on low heat will ensure more of a desired red colour). Cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, turning when pancakes begin to bubble.
