Every now and then something comes along that's just too cute to ignore...

It's time to make some Elf Donuts!

These teeny tiny donut lookalikes are perfect to set out next to the cookies and milk for Santa. (Hey, those helpers get hungry too!) Best of all, this project is 100% kid-friendly (and 10% diet friendly.)

You only need a few simple ingredients, and you might even have them in the house already!

You'll need:

  • Cheerios (any brand or variety will do)
  • Nutella
  • Powdered sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Sprinkles (non-pareils work best)
  • Chopsticks (optional)
  • Matchbox (or other itty bitty box)

The Cheerios serve as the donut base, which can be decorated or topped to look like regular donuts!

I can't even with these... (Laurie Cataldo)

So. Much. Fun. And so stinkin' cute!

Whether you use them with your SUPER CREEPY Elf on a Shelf or just to keep Santa's Helpers happy...I hope you have as much fun making Elf Donuts as I did! Merry Christmas, all!
