I’m always looking for fun kid’s food ideas. So, I made these adorable donut snowmen for my grandchildren. I originally found the idea at Dukes and Duchesses and decided to give them a try. Fun kid’s food ideas are usually a big hit. These were a huge success with my little ones.
Sugar is everywhere during the holidays. As parents we worry about the sugar content, but these were just too cute to worry about sugar. They make a perfect snack on Christmas Eve or on a cold snowy day with a cup of hot chocolate. Print out a snowman coloring page to add to the fun.
Grandmothers are sugar queens, so we’re allowed to fill our grandchildren with sugar. At least occasionally. These were so cute, my daughter and son-in-law couldn’t resist me offering these goodies to the kids. They’re easy to make and they were devoured with a huge glass of milk.
Here’s what you need:
*Mini Hostess donuts
*Mike and Ike Candies
*Black Food Pin
Step 1 – Carefully run the skewer through 3 donuts.
Step 2 – Cut an orange or red Mike and Ike in half. Place each half in the first donut for the nose. Next, cut another Mike and Ike, your choice, in half for the buttons. Next, place them in the hole of each of the donuts as shown.
Step 3 – Cut a strip of a Fruit Roll-Up and place it between donuts 1 and 2 to make the scarf as shown.
Step 4 – Use the black food pin to make the mouth and eyes. Your done!
Note: Cut off the pointed end of the skewer with a pair of kitchen scissors just to be on the safe side with the kids. Fun kid’s food ideas are great, but safety should be a factor too. These snowman donuts are a great for a school party, snow day snack or sleep overs. Give it a try, the kids will love them.
