Acorn Doughnuts

As I enjoyed a Chai Tea Latte from Starbucks on my walk this morning and felt the crisp air on my face, it hit me— it’s fall! I love fall. Aside from my birthday, my daughter’s birthday and my anniversary all taking place in the fall, I love the fall holidays, the smells, the sharp blue sky, the football. So when I came across this idea on Pinterest the other day, I jumped on it. What better way to kick off my favorite season than with these cute little acorn doughnuts?! The original recipe is from Disney’s FamilyFun Magazine and was recreated by graciousrain.com, and I think made better (hello, Nutella? on a doughnut?! DONE.).

Just take some doughnut holes and dip them a third of the way into Nutella before sprinkling with chocolate sprinkles or crushed toffee bits. Stick a pretzel stick in the top and, voilá, the cutest little acorn doughnuts you’ve ever seen!

About mommachine

I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and colleague. And trying to balance all of those roles at once can be utterly exhausting. Being the Type A control freak that I am, I try to run my life like a well-oiled machine. But sometimes the wheels get a bit squeaky (or just fly off completely, let's be honest). I have to slow down (yeah right, I know), give the different parts of my life a little tune-up and get back on the road.
