The Chicken Chick®: Elf on the Shelf Donuts

Dec 20, 2012

Elf on the Shelf Donuts

I could use a few more weeks this Christmas season to tackle all of the projects on my list, which continues to grow thanks to Pinterest. When I saw these mini donuts last night, I knew exactly what I was going to do with them! I told my daughters we needed to make treats for their Elf on the Shelf, Eddie, to bring to the North Pole for his hard-working elf friends. The project and concept were big hits with my little girls. Memories in the making. ♥
The donuts are Cheerios, which were either dipped in Wilton candy melts and topped with sprinkles or covered in powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar. 

I used a tiny box I have had on-hand and printed out an address label with the Dunkin' Donuts logo on it.
My daughters ate more of the donuts than they produced and a good time was had by all.

  11. Fabulous, my daughter has a traditional toy shop and we have a charity Santa every year. All proceeds go to children's charities and we love to go the extra mile for the children. Guess what's going to be added to the present and goody bags this year ;)
