Elf donuts

In preparation for Christmas Eve we made elf donuts.  These are super simple – you just need cheerios and sugar for the plain donuts and cheerios, chocolate spread and sprinkles for the chocolate donuts.  They look very sweet and my two boys are proud of their little creations.  Obviously they ate most of them.

For the sugar donuts – lick each side of the cheerio (or wet them with hands if, like my boyfriend, you think this is gross!) then roll them in sugar.

For the chocolate donuts – melt chocolate spread for 20 seconds in the microwave/briefly on the hob then spread them on to cheerios using a glue stick or teaspoon.  Top with sprinkles.

That’s it!  For once the elves will get a little recognition and it won’t just be Santa and Rudolph who enjoy a treat…
