Hi there! Happy Wednesday!
Last year I found these adorable donut holes in a magazine, I think Parents Magazine, and my daughter and I had a great time making them together! This year we wanted to make them again and share them with all of you! If you like these, please “pin” them to your Pinterest! Just scroll or hover over any picture until the pink “Pin” button appears : ) Or, click the pink “P” social media button at the bottom of this post!
Here is a picture of Hailey making these last year : )
Apple Donut Holes:
Plain donut holes (I really like this recipe for donuts, or you can use store bought which I did this time!! Tip: If you can only find glazed store bought that is okay too)
1 1/2 Confectioners (powerdered) sugar
3-4 tablespoons water
Red and/or green sprinkles
Brown or black candy for the apple stem (I used Chocolate Twizzlers)
In a large bowl mix 1 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar with 3-4 tablespoons of water to make a simple glaze. There are a couple of ways to do the next step: 1) Dip donut holes into the glaze and then roll into either the red or green sprinkles or 2) Use a metal BBQ skewer and then drizzle the donuts with the glaze and then sprinkle the sprinkles onto the donuts while you spin the skewer. Next, place the donuts onto a wax paper covered plate or tray. Cut the Twizzlers into small stems for the apples and press into the top of your little donut apple (this is very easy if you used the skewer method mentioned above). Next, cut the green candy into little leaf shapes (don’t worry, they don’t have to be perfect!) and press gently into the donut next to the step. Ta-da! You’re done!! Let the donuts dry so they aren’t sticky from the glaze, and then devour!!
Action shot! This is a messy dessert, but a really fun one for kiddos!!
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! I think these make adorable and impressive treats for a party or just getting together with friends : ) Get excited for some subscription box giveaways next week!!
