Acorn Dough Nuts

Aren’t these adorable!  The kids would have such a blast making these.  I am thinking it is a great “job” to keep kids busy Thursday morning while you are busy making Thanksgiving dinner.  I don’t know what goes on at your house, but my kids are always wanting to help in the kitchen.  I love when they want to help, but there are days when I just need to get into the zone and do it myself.  Thanksgiving is usually one of those days.  There is so much going on that I need to pay attention to.  So this is the perfect solution.  Allow them their own creations.  And these really are simple enough that the kids could do them on their own.  These would be cute set on the table, one on each place setting or just saved for dessert.

Acorn Dough Nuts


Nutella, Chocolate Frosting or Peanut Butter
Donut Holes
Sprinkles, Chopped Nuts or Crumbled Toffee

Frost a third or so of a plain or glazed doughnut hole with Nutella, chocolate frosting or peanut butter.

Roll the frosted top in sprinkles, chopped nuts or crumbled toffee, then add a small piece of a pretzel for the stem.

Recipe from Family Fun.
