What kid wouldn’t love making these teeny, tiny “donuts” for the fairies, gnomes, and Santa’s elves? They’re just too cute! L and I make chocolate-sprinkle donuts, powdered sugar donuts, and cinnamon sugar donuts; because, you know…it’s nice to give the wee folk some options after all. We make these “donuts” throughout the year for L and her fairy tea parties, but we also like to whip up a batch at Christmastime and leave them alongside Santa’s cookies and the reindeer’s carrots on Christmas Eve…we wouldn’t want any elf to be left out! They’re rather simple to make and your kids will go nuts when they see them! Sometimes it’s the littlest things (literally)!
- O-shaped cereal
- chocolate chips or baker’s chocolate
- syrup (or honey)
- powdered sugar
- brown sugar
- small bowls
- double-broiler (or microwave)
First, melt your chocolate in either a double-broiler or in the microwave.
Next, carefully dip your O-shaped cereal into the chocolate.
And L’s favorite step, cover in sprinkles!
Powdered Sugar Donuts & Cinnamon Sugar Donuts
These donuts are super easy to make. First, dip the O-shaped cereal into a little bowl of syrup or honey.
Next, remove the cereal with a toothpick, and toss around in either a bowl of powdered sugar…
…or a bowl of brown sugar.
It’s that simple, but oh so sweet!
A few weeks ago, L gave two of her classmates homemade fairy sets for their birthdays. Sure enough, we included some fairy donuts in little, folded-paper boxes!
Sometimes you really do have to make your own magic! Enjoy!!!
