Donut Hole Acorns

To celebrate the First Day of Fall today and inspired by this cute idea at Family Fun, the kids and I made some super cute acorn treats out of donut holes.

Aren't they cute?

They were really easy to make and the kids loved helping.

Here's what you need:

* Donut holes

* chocolate frosting (or peanut butter)

* chopped nuts (or sprinkles)

* pretzel sticks

Here's what you do (it really doesn't even need explaining!)

1. Dip your donut hole in the frosting, 
then in the nuts or sprinkles...

2. Add a piece of a pretzel stick as a stem...

3. Put them on a cute plate and enjoy!

*NOTE* ~ We used the boxed glazed donut holes, which, although delicious, had the tendency to crumble a bit when we were dipping them.  When I do it again, I may use some "sturdier" donuts.

  32. I'm wondering what an example of a sturdier donut might be for this ?

  33. Thank you for this great idea! Instead of the peanuts due to allergies in some children I used the silver sprinkles for my son's VPK class this week. They are going on their field trip tomorrow to the park to collect acorns and I thought this would be a great snack for him to bring on his day. Well we did bring them in yesterday and the class and 2 teachers absolutely loved them!!! My 4 yr old son came home after school and told me that his friends thanked him 4 times!!! What a hit!!! Thank you again.

    1. Yay. I 'm so glad they were a hit! (And doesn't it feel great to impress so many people with something that was actually quite easy to make? ) :)

  34. That is precious. Thanks so much for sharing! =)

  35. These look delicious! I'd love a couple with my coffee tomorrow am
