Mix pancake mix, cocoa powder and granulated sugar in large bowl until well blended. Stir in buttermilk, eggs, vanilla and food color just until blended.

Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto preheated lightly greased griddle or skillet. Cook 1 to 2 minutes per side or until golden brown, turning when pancakes begin to bubble. Serve pancakes with Cream Cheese Topping or Spiced Syrup, if desired.

For the Cream Cheese Topping, mix cream cheese and confectioners' sugar in small bowl until well blended. Stir in milk, a little at a time, until smooth. Stir in vanilla.

For the Spiced Syrup, mix pancake syrup, vanilla and cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice in microwavable bowl or measuring cup. Microwave on HIGH 1 to 2 minutes or until warm, stirring once.
