They are really cheerios styled into teeny tiny donuts (perfect for elves) and I thought they were kind of awesome. Okay, completely awesome!
So yesterday, Matilda and I set about making our own Elf Donuts.
We took a pile of cheerios.
Some squeezy tube icing (because it is easier for Matilda to handle than normal icing), some sprinkles, some hundreds and thousands, and some ground cinnamon.
Matilda covered the top of a cheerio with icing...
Dipped it in the hundreds and thousands...
And voila - tiny treats for tiny elves!
And then she ate it!
The cinnamon ones looked really cute, as did ones with just pink icing.
Before long we had a whole plate full of Elf Donuts.
And not long after that, they were all gone!
I think we will definitely be making quite a few more batches of these. Don't you think they would make a wonderful gift? And of course, for leaving out on Christmas Eve for Santa's very important helpers.
Thank you Emma for the wonderful inspiration!
P.S. If you make your own, don't forget to finish off the leftover sprinkles...
