Day 25 of my 50 DIY Days: Mini Doughnut Recipe
I shared this little recipe a couple of years ago, but it’s so cute I wanted put it back on the blog for this year’s 50 DIY Days. I made these mini doughnuts for one of our Elf on the Shelf nights and my daughter thought it was so funny. I propped up the doughnut poker chip “plate” right next to her elf and in the morning my kiddo got a little sweet treat, courtesy of our elf.
They’re easy to make, check out the “recipe” below.
- Store bought frosting
- O’s cereal
- Optional: a poker chip for a plate
Step 1: Pick out a couple dozen O’s.
Step 2: Use the toothpick to scoop a tiny amount of frosting out of the container, then spread it onto the tops of the O’s.
Step 3: Pour some sprinkles onto a plate. Dip the frosted side of the O into the sprinkles. Use your finger to gently secure the sprinkles onto the frosted O.
Step 4: Use a toothpick to poke a hole through the frosted side of the O (to clear the hole of frosting).
Step 5: Repeat the above steps until you have enough doughnuts! Let the doughnuts sit for a couple hours until the frosting is hard.
Step 6: To serve these mini doughnuts, you can place them on a poker chip “plate”, or maybe create a tiny box out of cardstock paper.
