Another adorable, little treat that I like to make around Thanksgiving, along with our No-Bake Acorn Cookies, is our Acorn Donut Holes! They are perfect for breakfast snacking, leading up to the main event. I make some with toasted coconut and some without to add some variation to the plate and to please all the little picky eaters in our world.
- plain donut holes
- bakers chocolate or chocolate chips
To make the toasted coconut, spread a couple handfuls of coconut on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven on 350 degrees, for 5-10 minutes. Keep a close eye on the coconut…you want it to be lightly browned, but not completely dark brown and burnt!
While the coconut is toasting, melt your chocolate in a double-broiler on the stove top. (Or in the microwave if you have one!)
Break up a few pretzels to use as the “stems” of your acorn tops.
Depending on how big your donut holes are, you can choose to cut off the tops or not. Sometimes I like cutting them in half to make little acorns for little hands, other times I leave them whole and they look just as sweet!
Next, dip the top of a donut hole into the melted chocolate.
Have your little helpers sprinkle the toasted coconut on top of the chocolate.
And lastly, stick a little pretzel piece into the donut to look like a stem! Too easy!
And sooo yummy!!! Enjoy!!!
