If you are on pinterest a lot, you may have noticed these fun donut acorns floating around. Jill Schultz decided to try them out herself, with a few twists thrown in of course. These acorns are a perfect way to celebrate fall or Thanksgiving and make for a kid-friendly snack and project. You can use a chocolate hazelnut spread like Nutella, your favorite chocolate frosting, or creamy peanut butter. Either way, this snack is sure to be a hit with the whole family. Almost anything will work for sprinkling on the tops. Whether you use nuts, coconut, toffee bits or chocolate sprinkles (jimmies), these donut acorns are sure to look adorable when presented! (Of course they will taste great too.)
One package of store bought donut holes
½ C. peanut butter
½ C. chocolate frosting
Brownish colored sprinkles – I tried to use what I already had on hand: chocolate sprinkles, chopped almonds and Heath baking bits
Pretzel sticks for the stem
#1. Pour about ½ cup of each topping out onto a small plate and set aside.
#2. Next, take one donut at a time and spread a little bit of peanut butter or chocolate frosting on top then roll the top in the toppings you have set aside. Insert a pretzel stick for a stem (break in ½ if needed).
#3. Repeat with all your donuts.
Super cute and easy. What a great way to celebrate the start of fall! Would you try making these for your family?
